Our Purpose

At Reformation, we are changing our world by sharing God’s love with all people, acting as God’s hands and feet.

Our Values


In Christ, "we live and move and have our being" (Acts 17:28).  As followers of the Way of Jesus, we seek to love our neighbor, love our enemy, love ourselves, and love creation.  Since all things came through Christ (cf. John 1:3), we treat all things as bearing Christ—especially the hungry, thirsty, the stranger, those needing clothing, those experiencing sickness, those in prison (cf. Matt 25:37-40).  


The same Spirit that moved over the waters at the beginning (cf. Gen 1:2) is the same Spirit that continues to move, guide, and enliven the Church and the Children of God (Rom 5:5). We trust that the Spirit is moving in, with, and through Reformation Lutheran Church to fulfill our purpose within God's mission to bring about the Reign of God. 


At Reformation, we proclaim that all are welcome here!  That means that you are welcome, loved, and accepted for who you are.  God's children are a rainbow of all races, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities, and socioeconomic statuses.  Every person is beautifully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:13-14).  

Restorative Justice

God's plan and desire for all of creation is to be restored to wholeness.  Unfortunately, our world seems to demand retributive justice—in other words, an eye for an eye.  But as Mohandas Gandhi said, "an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind."  God, indeed, is a God of justice, but that justice is restorative, not retributive.  God responds to wrongdoing, sin, and evil with grace, mercy, and love.  At Reformation, we seek to be a part of restorative justice by making a fair world for all people to live in, breaking down systems of oppression and injustice—like racism, sexism, and anti-LGBTQIA+ policies.  


For we are saved by grace through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ (Eph 2:8-9).  The gift of the ever-abundant grace of God is what permeates every facet of our life at Reformation.  Our Lutheran theology teaches us that our two Sacraments (Baptism and Holy Communion) are vehicles of God's grace and presence.  We also believe that we—the body of Christ—are witnesses of God's grace, sharing our stories of God's unending and unconditional love with the world.
