In grateful response to God's grace and empowered by the Holy Spirit through Word and Sacraments, the mission of The Lutheran Church– Missouri Synod is vigorously to make known the love of Christ by word and deed within our churches, communities, and the world.

With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments.  The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and co-eternal, one God.

Why we are called Lutherans...

"It is not we who call ourselves Lutherans. Rather, our adversaries call us that. We allow this to the extent that this title is an indication of the consensus that our churches have with the orthodox and catholic doctrine that Luther set forth from Holy Writ. Therefore we allow ourselves to be named after Luther, not as the inventor of a new faith but as the asserter of the old faith and the cleanser of the church from the stains of Papist dogmas. Consequently, we also do not reject the names “Christian” and “catholic,” nor do we render ourselves unworthy of them by the approval of any heretical dogma, as did the Arians, Nestorians, Eutychians, etc. Rather, we are called “Christians” from Christ as the only Author and Teacher of our faith. We are called “catholics” from our consensus with the catholic faith. We are called “Lutherans” from Luther as the asserter and defender of that faith, but especially as the reformer whom God raised up."

+Johann Garhard, On the Church (Theological Commonplace XXV), 156

It is our belief that being "Lutheran," means we accept and teach Bible-based teachings that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases:
Grace alone, Scripture alone, Faith alone.

We believe that God's mandate to the church is to tell everyone that He has come into this world to save all sinners through Jesus Christ. That is our mission and vision. And it looks like this . . .

We are:

Gospel Based: On the hope God gives in Jesus Christ and confirms in His Word.

Mission Driven: An urgency to tell His love to neighbors, friends and strangers, here, and in other lands.

People Oriented: Not an institution, but people who love, listen, help, support and care.

Bible Centered: Where Word and Sacrament provide strength and community.

That is our vision and mission: Linking people in service to the Lord and enabling one another to serve Him by . . . "telling everyone what He has done."
