Our Mission

Our mission at St. Andrew’s is “to be disciples and to make disciples.” We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ gave his life for us on the cross, and continues to give his life to us now and always. Through our faith in God, we receive peace amid the anxiety of this world, power to face whatever life may bring our way, and purpose — to serve others as Christ has served us. We believe and emphasize, along with Lutherans throughout the world, that we are saved by God's grace, and we are called to put our faith and trust in the triune God who created, redeemed and sustains us. In gratitude for all God has done and continues to do for us, we give our lives back to Christ. We seek to grow as disciples through worship, prayer, Bible study, and mutual support. We seek to make disciples and share God’s love by going out to serve others in our community and our world, and by inviting others to join with us and become recipients of God’s peace, power and purpose.


St. Andrew's offers several worship services, and among our most popular are the Sunday morning services. Which ever service you choose to attend, expect a welcoming environment and friendly people. If you're new to St. Andrew's -- or new to church itself -- you'll probably be interested in our What to Expect section, which outlines everything from what to wear to when to stand, and even details each service so you know exactly what it includes.
