Our Mission Statement

The mission of Holy Cross Lutheran Church is to create a spiritual atmosphere that fosters the love of God the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. As a community of faith gathered by the Holy Spirit and called to give ourselves to the Gospel, we proclaim Christ, share our faith, nurture, support, and reach out to one another and the community, and live as the body of Christ.

We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, or “ELCA”

ELCA congregations are centers for evangelical mission, where people of faith celebrate, learn and connect with one another and others around the world through service and weekly worship.

We are a church that belongs to Christ. There is a place for you among our nearly 4 million members throughout approximately 10,000 congregations across the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. For us as the ELCA, this faith comes through the good news of Jesus Christ and gives us the freedom and the courage to wonder, discover and boldly participate in what God is up to in the world.
