Mission and Vision
Who We Are and What are our Core Values:
We are a community that values faith, family, children, caring, and helping.
What Do We Believe In and What Are Our Bedrock Beliefs:
Worship – Word and Sacrament
“One Lord, One faith, One baptism” – Ephesians 4:5
“This is my body given for you” – 1 Corinthians 11:24
“I have laid up thy word in my heart” – Psalm 119:11
It is at worship that God’s Love flows to us through the Word and Sacraments and it is this Love that flows through us into the world.
“… the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things unseen.” – Hebrews 11:1
Faith is a cherished gift from God. Faith is trusting God. Faith assures us of God’s presence with us today and points us forward to the gift of everlasting life.
“My grace is sufficient for you” – II Corinthians 12:9
Grace is God’s undeserved gift to us. Here we acknowledge that all that we are and all that we have is a gift from God. We serve and live in response to the grace of God.
“Cast all your anxieties on him” – 1 Peter 5:7
Prayer is a gift that comes with our relationship with God. God calls us to pray individually and as a community.
“love one another as I have loved you” – John 13:34
Love binds us together as a community. Love is first and foremost a commitment to be there for one another no matter what the circumstances. We believe that nothing can separate us from the love of God shown to us in Jesus the Christ.
What is Our Vision:
We envision expanding our youth ministry by involving members of Our Savior’s in conversation, study, mentoring, and doing mission with youth. We envision increasing faith and fellowship among all families at Our Savior’s and finding ways to help young families grow in faith and to share faith in their homes. We envision being a diverse congregation that intentionally finds ways to invite, involve, and minister to unchurched people and those new to our community. We envision being known as a mission congregation that reaches out to all people.
We invite, encourage, educate and empower all people to follow God and serve others.
