Faith Practices

“... live among God’s faithful people, to hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s supper, to proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed, to serve all people following the example of Jesus, and to strive for justice and peace in all the earth”
(Affirmation of Baptism, Evangelical Lutheran Worship, p. 236)

Our five-fold responses are actually five gifts from God.  These are Spirit-filled gifts given to guide our walk in the newness of life in Christ.
