MISSION: “GROW, GO AND GLORIFY GOD”

At Beaver Lake Lutheran Church, our mission, vision and values state what we believe.  More importantly, this statement drives our decisions and guides our life as a community of faith.  Our mission, vision and values draw us forward into the future that we believe God is calling us to and holds us accountable to how we want to be as a body of Christ in action.

Grow more deeply with God and one another.

Go and invite all people to faith and community in Christ.

Glorify God by giving thanks for His countless blessings.

VISION:

Draw people into transforming opportunities to spread and live the Good News of Jesus Christ.

VALUES:

Grace alone is the core of who we are as a congregation centered in a Lutheran understanding of the Christian faith.  We believe that God’s life-giving, saving grace is offered freely in Jesus Christ.  We are grounded in the Bible as God’s inspired, living Word, understanding in a non-literal way.  We are called by the Holy Spirit to faith through this Good News and empowered and sent to share and live out God’s grace in daily life.

Gathering in worship is central to our faith and life.  We desire to reach out to people through corporate worship which invites participation and engages life today in powerful ways.  Celebration of Word and Sacrament is thoughtfully combined with other elements of worship to create inspiring and meaningful worship experiences.

Prayer is an expression of our relationship with God and is woven into the fabric of life at Beaver Lake.  We pray individually and together as a faith community, interacting with God as partners in ministry and seeking God’s heart and will.

Relationships are at the heart of our ministry and reflect God’s relationship with God’s creation.  We are a Christian community that connects people of all ages with God and with one another, in informal and intentional ways.

Learning is essential to a dynamic and deepening faith.  A growing understanding of the life graciously given in Jesus Christ illuminates our daily walk.

Service to others in the name of Jesus is our response to his life-giving ministry.  We are each uniquely gifted for ministry and seek opportunities to share ourselves, our resources, our faith and the love of Christ with people.

Witnessing and sharing the Good News with those we encounter is a command of Jesus Christ.  We believe faith in Jesus transforms lives and frees people from sin.  We therefore actively seek and reach out to those in the community and beyond, to share this Good News of God’s redemptive love in Jesus Christ.

All people are welcome at Beaver Lake.  We believe God welcomes each of us in life-giving, forgiving love through Jesus Christ.  We invite YOU to partner with the people of Beaver Lake Lutheran Church as we seek to live out our mission, vision and values.
