Who We Are

“Faith Lutheran Church exists to gather the people to worship and praise God,

to equip them in faith, and to send them into the world to make a difference in His name.”

Welcome to 2020: The Year of Mission!

Our focus this year will be on the Mission of God.

God has a mission, and God’s mission has a church. In Scripture, we encounter the Triune God working to restore and renew all things. The Bible begins with creation and ends with the promise of a new creation. The Triune God is working to renew everyone and everything and invites us to participate. The mission of the Northwestern Ohio Synod is a participatory mission:

Sent by the Crucified and Risen Jesus to
Make disciples, Equip Leaders, Strengthen Parishes,
And Launch New Communities
For the Renewal of Northwestern Ohio and the World.

During 2020: The Year of Mission, we will aspire to grow as we participate in
God’s Mission through three distinct practices:

  • To discern the Mission of God through prayer, Scripture, and sacred conversation;
  • To align the identity and work of God’s people and parishes with the Mission of God;
  • To participate in the Mission of God for the renewal of Northwest Ohio and the world.
