About Our Church

Welcome to Valley of Peace Lutheran Church where Christians from every tradition, people new to the faith, believers, questioners, and questioning believers are one together in Christ Jesus.

Our Mission & Vision

Our vision and mission is to help connect people to faith and community

Scripture informs and inspires us in the words, “All this is from God, who reconciled us to God through Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation.” 2 Corinthians 5:18

Our Mission Statement reflects our ministry: “Living in God’s love and compassion, we are called to be disciples of Jesus Christ, as the Holy Spirit works through us for healing, justice, and peace.”

What we Believe

Lutherans are a diverse group of people, trusting that the Holy Spirit is leading us toward unity in the household of God.  Members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America are connected to the church through the ages and around the world.

Lutherans believe in the Triune God and that we are part of God’s unfolding plan.

When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere and of every time.

When we study the Bible and pray, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story.

When we serve others and address social issues that affect the common good, we live out our Christian faith.

We invite you into this community of Christian faith. Welcome and explore.

Racial Justice Statement

 We believe we are all created in God’s image and that we are called by Jesus, through the workings of the Holy Spirit for healing, justice, and peace, to reconciliation, service, and care for all of God’s beloved community.

We Confirm that, as a ministry of Jesus Christ, we envision a faith community that celebrates all people and strives for racial justice in all that we do.
