"We believe we are called as Lutherans to re-energize the Christian church in today's world so all may hear and come to believe in the living God. Our tools are the Bible, the preached Word, the Sacraments, the teachings of Martin Luther, inspiring music, fellowship, community involvement and our individual gifts from God."
