What to Expect

Mission Statement for St. Peter's Lutheran Church:

JESUS CALLS us to gather in faith
FREES us to serve in love
SENDS us to share God's Word

A great commitment to the great commandment and the great commission will grow a great church...

  • THE GREAT COMMANDMENT: Matthew 22:36-39 "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
  • THE GREAT COMMISSION: Matthew 28:16-20 "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

Five purposes:

  • Magnify - celebrate God's presence in worship
  • Ministry - demonstrate God's love through service
  • Mission - share God's Word and make disciples
  • Membership - baptize them in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • Maturity - teach and help disciples grow
