The continuing purpose of this congregation, as a gathering of Christians, is to serve all the people in God’s world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ on the basis of Holy Scriptures.
Our objective is to proclaim the Law and Gospel, to lead sinners to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ for life and salvation. To strengthen believers in faith and sanctification through the means of grace and to equip believers as disciples, stewards, and witnesses for the sharing of the Gospel of Jesus with our fellow man.
"Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give you"
- John 14:27
