Our Theme:
R.L.C. - "Resurrection Lives for Christ"

Our Mission Statement:
"Each one playing their part in God's miracle of Second Chances and Renewal (resurrection) in people's lives."

Resurrection is a Christian Church associated with the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod and dedicated to Jesus Christ as Savior and King and to proclaiming, through the Holy Spirit, the truth and power of His Word. We recognize that God has a unique purpose for our congregation in this time and place, which is to make more and stronger disciples.

We, therefore, are committed to seeking out as many people as possible, sharing the good news that brings a man, woman or child into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

Also, we see every person as uniquely gifted by God to serve in His Kingdom, and encourage each individual to become mature Christians through worship, Bible study, small group participation, prayer, and using their God given gifts in service to each other and to those who do not yet know Him.

Our Vision Statement:

"Christians are people who remember their own weaknesses and failure. They are under reconstruction. So they offer hope and forgiveness to people who fall and who need Jesus' healing grace and hope." -- Donald M. Joy

We see Resurrection Lutheran Church as a collection of God's people together -- each, saint and sinner; in various levels of hurting and health; of all different ages and ethnic backgrounds; trusting in Jesus as Savior and Lord. Out of this diversity, God has Created a unity as a family of faith, which we nurture through our caring and love for one another, agreement in our teaching, and a commitment to this vision of ministry.

We see our Ministry rooted in:

Reconstruction
Reaching out to people facing hurting and difficult life issues so that they might experience health in Jesus Christ -- health in body (physical, emotional and relational) and health in spirit -- by providing relevant and meaningful ministries.

Re-creation
Raising up a joyful and healing experience of a nurturing Christian (congregational) family life. Through a dynamic worship and fellowship life we believe each person will be enjoying the fruits of wholeness, holiness and spiritual maturity in connection with other family members.

Renewal
Renewing each member with such enthusiasm that they are discovering and utilizing their giftedness as a child of God as we serve both those inside the church and outside.

We believe that God will accomplish this in our midst through a strong preaching and teaching ministry, the frequent celebrations of the Sacraments, and consistency in prayer.

Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father throught him. -- Colossians 3:12-17
