We preach the Gospel.
Scripture says that we are saved by grace alone; nothing we can do to get it and nothing we can do to prevent it. For us, this is not just a thing to be believed but something that shapes how we live our lives and care for others.
We accept and love everyone just as they are.
We don't judge you; we embrace you. We don't care how old you are or how much money you have. It doesn't matter who you are or where you've been. All are welcome at Grace of God.
We blend ancient and modern.
Our congregation is part of the long history of Christianity. We sing new songs and remember familiar hymns. Our worship is structured on the ancient liturgy and refreshed by contemporary forms. We value music and art and expressions of the Gospel.
We are Lutheran and independent.
Some of our members come from other branches of Christianity, some come from various Lutheran synods, and some have no formal religious background. But we all indentify with the rich theological tradition of Lutheranism: that we are saved by grace through faith, Law and Gospel, Word and Sacrament, saint and sinner. We choose not to affiliate with any denominational structure so that we have the freedom and autonomy to decide what is important to us.
We value service to others.
We respond to the good news of Jesus by giving back to our community and our world. We don't do this to convert or manipulate others; we do this to serve others. Whether it's working to make sure all have enough to eat or a place to sleep or just someone who will listen, we strive to support our neighbors.
