Song of Faith
We’re members of Faith Lutheran
And all God’s family.
We work and pray together
That all the world believe
In Christ our only Savior;
He died to save us all.
So we must spread the message;
Obey our Father’s call.
Faith Lutheran Church Constitution
It is the will of our Lord Jesus Christ that His disciples
should preach the Gospel to the whole world.
(Mark 16:16, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8) That Christ’s
mission for his church might be carried out according to
his will, he has commanded that Christians unite in
worship (Hebrews 10:24-25), practice fellowship with
one another (Acts 1:8, Matthew 28:18-20) and serve the
needs of all men in Christian love. (Ephesians 4:7-16,
Mark 10:42-44, John 13:35, Galatians 6:10) Christians
are also to administer the Office of the Keys as his church
(John 20:21-23, Matthew 18:15-20) and to maintain
decency and order in the church (2 Corinthians 14:40).
Faith Lutheran Church Bylaws
The bylaws cover membership, voters meetings, eligibility for elective office, the church council, church officers, boards, committees, finance and other matters.
