Our Mission

Marked with the cross of Christ forever, we are claimed, gathered and sent for the sake of the world.

This is the mission statement of the ELCA. As members of the ELCA, we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. With our hands, we do God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus’ name throughout the world. We are called and privileged to participate in God's work in the world. God calls and empowers us for mission through baptism.

 

As a community of believers justified by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8), we do not describe mission in terms of our own work but with reference to the healing, salvation and restoration that God accomplishes through Christ. We seek the guidance of the Spirit in our planning, while expecting surprising developments and unanticipated opportunities. Grounded in God’s love and forgiveness, we are equipped to live and serve here and now, in the world, with all it's complexities, tensions and ambiguities. We have the courage to explore the world as saints and sinners are certain of God's promises and of the confident hope that all God's loving purposes will be fulfilled when our risen Lord Jesus Christ returns (1 John 3:2).

 

Our Saviour's Lutheran Church has a long history of being Mission-Minded. Since 1860 we have committed to doing God's Work with Our Hands--around the world and around the block. We support misisonaries in Tanzania, have a companion relationship with a district in Malawi, and participate in a sister-city relationship in Nicaragua. We support the ELCA-World Hunger Appeal and the Malaria Campaign. "Stitches of Love" is a group making quilts and prayer shawls. Canned and boxed food items are collected for the Whitehall Food Pantry year round. We also collect items for layettes, health kits, and school kits for Lutheran World Relief.
