Who We Are
Faith United is a congregation of people joined together in their baptism who seek to support and love one another as we serve God in the world. We believe in the power of God’s grace to change us and transform our world.
Faith United seeks to grow in Christ through Word (Bible readings and preaching) and Sacrament (baptism and Holy Communion). We confess Christ as God’s salvation for a broken world, and as a sign of our renewal and call to care and love others.
We are called to grow in our faith with God by uniting in worship, learning God’s word, and nurturing one another.
We are called to live our faith with God by serving all people, showing unconditional acceptance, and caring for all of God’s gifts.
Grow in Faith, Live Our Faith With God
Why Faith United?
Here at Faith United, we talk about how we are always growing in our faith. None of us have all the answers, none of us are perfect, but we are all loved by God in Jesus Christ! This is a place where we can come together to ask hard questions and talk about our doubts, fears, and challenges, all while being supported by one another and loved by God. We belong to one another, and we seek to live that truth by pouring out kindness, care, and unconditional acceptance to one another.
We strive to truly welcome all people with an earnest invitation to discover together what it means to be loved back to life by Jesus Christ. We are on this road of faith together.
We also believe that our faith means something for our lives. We work to love our community well through a variety of feeding programs, fellowship and education opportunities, and service.
What is a Lutheran?
Lutherans are a body of believers who believe that we are what God has made us – people whom God has created by grace to live in union with Jesus Christ and has prepared to live faithful, fruitful lives by the power of the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 2:8-10). In Jesus Christ, God has reconciled us to God and to each other. As we gather around word and sacraments, this life in Christ is what defines, shapes and guides us as a community of faith, the church.
