What We Believe


Mission Statement:

We are called by God to share the love of Christ.

Vision:

We gather in Christ, grow in love, and go in service.

Welcome to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church We’re glad you are here!

Centered in Christ Jesus, we work to proclaim the Gospel in new and creative ways in all we do! There’s a place for you in worship and in the mission and ministry we share. All are welcome! Thank you for being a part of God’s Growing Family as we Re-Imagine, Re-Engage, and ReJoice in ministry as God’s dearly loved people at Gloria Dei.

Gathering is God’s action through the word of Christ (Romans 10:17). We proclaim the Word of God, that the Spirit may create faith in us, gathering us together as the “body of Christ.”

Growing is the ministry of nurture and care that brings us “to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ” (Ephesians 4:13). We offer opportunities for significant sharing, support and study that those who gather here may grow in faith.

Going is the sending out of Jesus’ disciples that the spiritual, physical and emotional needs of all might know the healing presence of God (Matthew 28:19-20). We seek to share the love of Christ in meaningful ways within and beyond our walls.
