A grace-centered, grace-oriented community of people
We believe that without any merit on our own God created us, redeemed us, and is transforming us through the proclamation of God’s love in word and sacrament. We are convinced that we cannot save ourselves by our own understanding or effort.
The gospel we preach is a message of forgiveness that frees us to let God be truly God and to let humans be truly human.
A Proud Member of the ELCA
Resurrection is gladly part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We like to say ‘Lutheran’ is the adjective and ‘Christian’ is the noun, seeing ourselves as part of the one, universal (‘catholic’) Church of all times and places.
Everything is Grounded in Grace
The Good News that we have been entrusted to share is founded on God’s loving grace. Because God has acted first, delivering us from sin and death, we have been freed to live lives of joyful response.
Vibrant, Liturgical Worship
Our worship is shaped by the rhythm of Gathering, Word, Meal, and Sending with leadership and participation from all ages. This ancient pattern is expressed through fresh words and music as we move through the liturgical seasons of the church year.
Faith Formation for All Ages
Faith is a life-long journey, and we are committed to providing opportunities for all ages to grow as Jesus’ disciples. We believe in equipping everyone so home and church are partners in incubating faith.
Be Christ within Our Community
The Church gathers together in order to be (released) sent back into the world. Called to serve others in the name of Christ, we actively engage with our neighbors, community, and world.
Serving from Giftedness
We have been entrusted with countless gifts from God – both individually and as a congregation. Blessed with spiritual gifts, talents, resources and skills, we joyfully use these in a response of gratitude.
