Our Biblical Mission Statement (Jesus’ Great Commission):
“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything thatI have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20 NRSV
Our Congregational Mission Statement:
The mission of Victory Lutheran Church is to serve and glorify God by being and making disciples for Jesus Christ through Passionate Prayer, Inspirational Worship, Transforming Study, Humble Service, Spiritual Relationships and Joyful Giving.
Our Church’s Guiding Values:
We believe in the truth, guidance and spiritual nourishment that God’s Word, the Bible, provides to every believer and we intentionally dedicate ourselves to…
1) Know God’s unconditional love through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 NIV
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves. it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8 NIV
2) Grow up and go deeper in this relationship through prayer, trust in and obedience to God’s Word.
“If you keep on obeying what I have said, you truly are my disciples. You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:31-32 CEV
3) Show God’s love through worship and service to others.
“ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ” Matthew 22:37-39 NIV
4) Equip and encourage our community to discover their God-given, unique gifts for ministry in the Church, home and world.
“…Equip the saints for the work of ministry, for the building up of the body of Christ.” Ephesians 4:12 NRSV
“There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but they all come from the same Spirit. There are different ways to serve the same Lord, and we can each do different things.” 1 Corinthians 12:4-5 CEV
5) Pass It On to the next generation. We want to share faith strategically through our ministry to children, students, young adults and families.
“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. This promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off –for all whom the Lord, our God, will call,” Acts 2:38-39 (NIV)
We are an association of congregations who are free in Christ, accountable to one another and rooted in the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions.
“For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them.” (Matthew 18:20)
Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ organizes several events throughout the year, providing an opportunity for our members and ministry partners (and those who are interested in finding out more about us) to come together for fellowship, networking, spiritual growth and news updates from our association.
Additionally, we invite our member congregations and ministry partners to contribute special events of interest to other LCMC congregations, such as retreats and district gatherings, to our online calendar.

Lutheranism was founded by Martin Luther, a German monk and professor who has been called the “Father of the Reformation.” In 1517, he famously protested against the Catholic Church’s sale of indulgences. In his sermons and writings, Luther stressed the doctrine of justification by faith alone and the authority of scripture alone.
Martin Luther taught that salvation comes by the grace of God and faith in Christ alone, and the many rituals and works prescribed by the church were not only unnecessary, but a stumbling block to salvation.
