About Us

What We Believe

Advent is a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Congregation

"We extend our welcome to people of all races, cultures and colors; to people of all sexual orientation, gender and gender identity; to people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities; to people of every legal economic and marital status; and to all those whom the world seeks to separate, divide or isolate.

We celebrate your identity as a gift from God, and we welcome you to a diverse community united by our faith. We welcome you to receive God’s grace given to all regardless of our worldly successes or failures. Welcome one another therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you for the glory of God.

(Romans 15.7)

What We Believe

Advent Lutheran Church’s Mission, Values and Vision.

Mission Statement:

Making the Love of Christ Known

Connecting with others to make the love of Christ Known

We believe:

- God is present in our worship, and in our daily lives. God loves every

one of us.

- We have new life because of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.

- We are a forgiven people. We always have a second chance. God’s

love changes us.

- The Bible is the life-giving word of God. God’s word gives us a

glimpse

into God’s plan of love for us and all creation.

- We serve those in need. Faith is not just a private matter. It is also a

public act.

- A place of hospitality, where all people are welcome.

- A place for all people to grow in faith through worship and learning

opportunities.

- A place of healing for those in need.
