STRATEGIC PLAN

        

MISSION STATEMENT 

In grateful response to God’s grace and empowered by the Holy Spirit through Word and Sacraments, we will vigorously make known the love of Jesus by word and deed within our church, community and the world.

 

VISION

One Mission

         The members of Divine Redeemer are urgently seeking opportunities to be joyfully engaged in the proclamation of the Gospel in both word and deed in our church, community and our world.  (2 Corinthians 5: 18-19)

 

One Message

         The message of Law and Gospel is proclaimed powerfully in our church, community, and world with evangelical urgency; cultural sensitivity; Lutheran fidelity; and Biblical clarity to transform lives in time for eternity.  (2 Corinthians 5:21)

 

One People

         The members of Divine Redeemer are one people, in Christ, intentionally working together in faithfulness with mutual love and respect.  (1 Peter 2:9) 

 

CORE VALUES

         Strong in the Word

         We hold the Bible as the inerrant Word of God.  Life-long Bible study thoroughly equips us for every good work and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.  (1 Timothy 1: 6-11)

 

         Faithful in Worship

         Recognizing that the purpose of worship is to glorify and praise God, we commit to living our faith in both regular corporate worship and in our daily lives.

 

         Sacrificial in Stewardship

         Recognizing that all things come from God, we value the faithful management and sacrificial giving of our time, talents, and treasure.

 

         Engaged in Mission

         We value the Great Commission to go and make disciples and we will spread the Good News of Jesus in our church, community, and the world.

 

         Passionate for People

         As Jesus directed us to love others, we will strive to meet their needs.  Caring for others  begins with each member.

         

         Committed to Christian Education

         We are committed to providing high quality Christian education to people of all ages.

 

         Excellence in Ministry

         Since we recognize that God has given His best in Jesus Christ, we strive to achieve excellence in all of our ministries.

 

         Unified in Jesus

         Together, we are one people, committed to following Jesus and sharing the Gospel with our church family, community, and the world.

 

CRITICAL TARGETS AND PREFERRED FUTURE CONDITIONS

         Outreach:   The members of Divine Redeemer Lutheran Church are daily seeking out out opportunities to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to un-churched neighbors and friends and are inviting them to non-threatening outreach events hosted regularly by Divine Redeemer Lutheran Church to the community.

 

         Assimilation:    The members of Divine Redeemer Lutheran Church are actively carrying out the mission, vision, and core values of their congregation by using their God-given gifts, talents, and abilities to the glory of God and His Kingdom.

 

         Stewardship:   The members of Divine Redeemer Lutheran Church are trusting in the Lord to fulfill His promise to daily provide all we need in this life.  In grateful response to His provision, we are growing spiritually into life-long disciples, giving of our resources, skills, and time.
