Mission, Vision and Values

Proclaiming the Living Word, Serving the Living God.

We believe that God's Word is living and active (Hebrews 4:12) and the primary means by which He communicates with us today. As well, Jesus, the Word made flesh that dwelt among us (John 1), came to earth and was crucified but did not remain dead. He is both the Living Word and the Living God.

Without vision that puts some "feet" on the mission of the church, it could be difficult to understand what proclaiming the Living Word and serving the Living God looks like. Our vision looks like this:

In obedience to God's Word and through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are dedicated to:
- equipping people to grow in Christ and
- seeking salvation for our fellow man.

Living Word Free Lutheran Church embraces nine core values that put our mission and vision into practice:

  • God's Word: trusting in the Holy Bible as the inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God, preserved for us by the Holy Spirit for our salvation and instruction
  • Prayer: communicating with God as a foundation to a personal relationship with Christ
  • Congregation: gathering together as a free and living body
  • Discipleship: encouraging and training one another to follow Christ
  • Education: Teaching God's Word to all ages
  • Equipping: Building up followers of Christ as God's exclusive means of salvation
  • Evangelism: Presenting the cross of Christ as God's exclusive means of salvation
  • Fellowship: Participating in the lives of fellow believers
  • Worship: Magnifying God's character in all aspects of our lives
