As God’s community of faith and love, it is our mission to:
Sound the Love of Christ
In gospel-centered, grace-filled worship Through preparing the baptized for ministry In caring for one another By nurturing children By serving the city and world.
We at Capitol Drive Lutheran Church confess the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching we trust the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.
This is a church which welcomes your questions. We do not have it all together, not do have an answer for all questions, not even all religious questions. Instead, we are on a journey, following Jesus, studying the Scriptures, learning from each other, and encouraging each other to be God’s joyful servants to world that desperately needs Good News.
Every Sunday in worship we hear God’s word from the Scriptures, pray as Jesus taught and come to the Lord’s Table expecting to receive the mercies that the Triune God promises. Throughout the week we continue to live by faith, serving others freely and generously in all that they do because we trust God’s promise in the Gospel. In small groups and at sick beds, in private devotions and in daily work, this faith saturates all of life.
We believe the Holy Spirit creates, strengthen and sustains faith in Jesus Christ and the life we have in him. That life-giving work continues every day, as Martin Luther explained in the Small Catechism: the Holy Spirit “calls, gathers, enlightens and sanctifies the whole Christian church on earth and preserves it in union with Jesus Christ in the one true faith.
