Church of the Savior – Lutheran is a caring community of God’s people, called in Jesus Christ to live by the power of the Holy Spirit, and in so doing, glorify God in our daily lives.
To fulfill this purpose, we are committed:
To worship and share in the Lord’s Supper regularly
To preach, teach and study God’s word
To witness the Gospel through word and deed
To nurture one another in Christian love
To serve the Lord as the Spirit of God may lead and provide the opportunities
We are reconciled to God by God’s forgiving mercy. Forgiveness and reconciliation flow from what God has made us to be in Jesus Christ and what God is doing with us in the world. As a people of God, we embody forgiveness in speech, action and relationships, and our ministry in reconciliation is foundational.
Each person is created in God’s image. We respect this God-given right to dignity and, inspired by the life of Jesus, show love and compassion for all people. Through proclamation of the gospel, through worship and as servants of God working for healing and justice in the world, we uphold and seek to protect the dignity and human rights of all people.
As Christ’s church, we value the richness of God’s creation and offer a radical welcome to all people, appreciating our common humanity and our differences. We are a church that does not view diversity as a barrier to unity. We recognize and will challenge dynamics of power and privilege that create barriers to participation and equity in this church and society – for women, people of color, minority ethnic groups, people with disabilities, people who are marginalized or living in poverty, and the LGBTQ community.
