Our Vision & Mission
"By God's grace Faith Lutheran Church will help SHAPE homes to be Christ-centered and together SHARE in making disciples in our community."
It’s our belief that, when Christians embrace Jesus Christ, we grow closer not only to our Father, but to each other, our church and our community.
"Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him."
I Corinthians 7:17
Our mission is to reach out to every household of Avon and surrounding communities to experience the best thing life has to offer: a growing relationship with Jesus Christ! This mission is represented in our vision logo, explained below.
The Yellow circle represents the sphere of our home life and all the family roles that come with it.
The Red circle is Faith Lutheran Church (Jesus bought the church with his precious blood) and represents the True Family that we have congregated around God's Word and Sacraments.
The Blue circle is our community. Notice that all the spheres overlap. The community influences the home and the home the community. The church exists in our community and also supports our 24/7 home life.
The Cross represents Jesus in all three spheres. He is the seeker of the lost in our community and uses his church and homes as means to reaching out. He is also present in our homes as each member of the house-hold lives a Christ-centered life and he is Lord of the Church. Notice the cross doesn't belong just to our church life or our Christian home but God's kingdom is in all three spheres but functions differently in each.
The two words shape and share are the driving verbs in what God is doing at Faith. We seek to live out the core of Lutheran theology of vocation and the Biblical model of faith shaping at home.
As disciples of Faith Lutheran Church, we embrace this vision by understanding our vocations and using them to glorify God. Vocation simply means to love and serve one's neighbor.
