What we believe is best summarized in our statement of mission, vision and values.
Our FPLC Bylaws, 2013-03-19 are now complete.
The following presents the Core Values of FaithPoint Lutheran Church. We desire that these values define and drive our ministry in a welcoming and encouraging environment:
We are grounded in bible-centered preaching/teaching that is real, reverent and relevant to our daily lives. We honor the authority of God’s Word and teach it with integrity, so that seekers find Christ, believers mature in Him and the family is spiritually nurtured. (2 Timothy 3:16; Col. 1:28; Deuteronomy 6:6-9)
God’s Grace and Love
We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. We choose to serve with love because He first loved us. We will provide welcoming community fellowship and authentic worship. (Eph. 2:8-10; 1 John 4:19; Mark 12:28-31; Hebrews 13:2; and John 4:21-24)
We rely on prayer in the conception, planning, and execution of all the ministries and activities of this church. (Matthew 7:7–11, Phil 4:6)
Because of God’s grace and love, and through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit, we will grow His kingdom with godly service through the discovery and giving of our gifts, talents and treasures. (Acts 1:8; Mark 10:45; James 2:26; and Corinthians 9:11)
We will be a beacon to our community and beyond through a well-mobilized ministry, inviting all into a relationship with Christ. (Matthew 5:14-16; 1 Cor. 12:4-7; and Matthew 28:19-20)
Top 4 Priorities
Wise counsel and past experience has taught us that focusing on the most important things first, and then doing them well consistently before adding other priorities, is critical to the success of any organization including a church. The Top 4 priorities identified as most important during our first season are:
- Consistent, quality worship service
- Strong youth ministry programs with a prioritization of Confirmation and Sunday School first
- Efficient, smooth logistics
- Mission outreach
These priorities, and all we do at FaithPoint, will be supported by a foundation of a church built upon Prayer and Scripture.
