Lutherans are a diverse group of people, convinced that the Holy Spirit is leading us toward unity in the household of God.
Members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) are connected to the faith of the church through the ages and around the world. Good Shepherd is a congregation that belongs to the ELCA.
Lutherans believe in the Triune God. We are part of God’s unfolding plan.
When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere and of every time.
Good Shepherd and the ELCA invite you into this community of Christian faith. Welcome, and explore. To learn more, or if have you any other questions, get in touch with Pastor Pam. You can also visit the ELCA’s page and see further statements of faith.
The foundation of Good Shepherd teaches that our God:
1. Has created and is sustaining all that exists and his truth is revealed to us in the Holy Bible;
2. Has entered human history in the crucified and risen Savior, Jesus of Nazareth, that we might know we are loved and empowered by God’s grace alone;
3. Works through the church for the redemption of creation by the power of the Holy Spirit;
4. Changes lives through the gospel of Jesus Christ, calling Christians to lives of:
• Continuing renewal
• Discovery of new ways to communicate and live out the gospel of Jesus Christ before the world
• Welcome and witness to all no matter where they are on life’s journey of faith
• Practicing compassion and justice as signs of Christ’s presence in the world;
5. Has provided a foundation for ministry in the historical witness of the Christian church especially in the ecumenical creeds and the Lutheran Confession.
