Good Shepherd Mission Statement

We pledge that the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd shall be open to all who wish to express their faith in God through Jesus Christ by worship, learning, witness, service and support.

We, as members, therefore commit ourselves to faithful attendance at worship, to be diligent in the use of the means of grace, and in the study of the Holy Scripture.

With the guidance of the Holy Spirit, we accept the challenge to bear witness by words and action to God's love, power and justice in our community, in our nation and in the world.
