WHY

As Christians of the Lutheran variety, we believe everything begins with God. God creates, forgives, heals, frees, renews and loves us into eternal life now, into the abundant life now. It’s not a matter of earning our freedom or “living right” in order to merit God's love. What heals and frees us is the gift of God's presence and love given through Christ to all people up front. We just get to respond in joy and service, joining God in what God is already up to in the world.
