Our Mission

At the end of each worship service, we say the following words in chorus as a reminder of the commitment we’ve made to each other and to our community.

By God’s grace, through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, we are called to

Worship God
Grow in Faith
Share the Gospel
Serve Others
Welcome All

 This mission serves to guide our worship, our programming, and our outreach.  Our vision provides further structure to those efforts.

Our Vision

Worship God by providing varied worship styles and settings and reflecting a Lutheran understanding of worship.

Grow in faith by creating additional opportunities for spiritual growth. This includes continuing our focus on prayer and Bible Study. We also grow in faith by challenging, supporting and sustaining people at all stages of faith and building relationships through small group and educational ministries.

Share the Gospel by making Cross of Christ a place to meet Jesus, equipping and encouraging people to live out their faith and be effective witnesses, and going out with good courage as the Holy Spirit leads us.

Serve others in order to make a difference in Jesus’ name. We do this by caring for those in need and focusing our volunteer efforts, increasing awareness of our service opportunities through effective communication, and investing our resources as good stewards of what God has given us.

Welcome all by working together to eliminate the barriers that keep us from being the caring congregation God wants us to be and working together to create an environment that will welcome people to faith in Jesus Christ.
