Open Arms Lutheran Church

Our Mission & Values

Our mission:

Extending Christ’s Love to All

Our values:

Openness, Serving, Worship, Seeking, Relationships

Openness

Following the example of Jesus Christ we strive to welcome all, extend hospitality, and be non-judgmental. Christ’s church is not ours to control, nor is it our job to sort, divide, categorize or exclude. There’s room in the boat for all.

Serving

Because Jesus served us through his life, death, and resurrection, we serve our neighbors both locally and globally with that same love. We give generously, work toward justice, and seek peace.

Worship

As Christians we receive the Good News gathered around word, water, wine, and bread. We are excited to assemble in the unity of Christ and joyfully worship our Lord. We give thanks that we are filled up and sent out.

Seeking

The Holy Spirit helps us grow, learn, pray, and shapes our lives as faithful disciples of Christ. Questions are welcome at Open Arms. Sometimes our seeking is a result of our brokenness. We consider this a safe place to heal and encounter the love of Jesus.

Relationships

We do not live in this world for ourselves, but rather in relationship with each other, God, and creation. We rejoice in our fellowship and community life together. As Christ draws us to him in love, we work to extend Christ’s love to all.
