Christ the King Lutheran Church: Growing disciples in mission for Christ.
At Christ the King ALL are welcome!
Our life together flows in and out of worship, where Christ is present in the sharing of the Word and the sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion, and where the people of God respond with thanks and praise.
We value relationships with each other and the world that God loves. We value the contributions of people of all ages.
We seek to live in God’s mission through acts of service, justice, compassion, and proclamation.
We value music and the arts.
We have a heart for local and global expressions of mission and ministry.
We value faith formation that is biblical and that moves us more deeply into the world around us.
Our theme for the 2010-11 year is Growing In God’s Community: From Stranger to Neighbor.
We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Direct links:

How we understand the Bible:
In its most basic definition, the Bible is a diverse collection of writings, divided into two main sections:
the Old Testament, which tells the story of God’s relationship with and work on behalf of the Hebrew people
- the New Testament, which shares the story of Jesus, God’s Son, and his teachings, death and resurrection, as well as the experiences and faith of the first followers of Jesus
As Lutherans, we believe that the Bible is the written Word of God. It creates and nurtures faith through the work of the Holy Spirit and points us to Jesus Christ, the living Word and center of our faith. And in reading the Bible, we are invited into a relationship with God that both challenges us and promises us new life.
