Sharing The Word of God
Why do we exist? Simply stated, we desire to follow Jesus and serve the city of Carson and it surrounding areas.
First Lutheran Church of Carson, ECLA believes that following Jesus is no simple “formula,” and actually quite often it makes life more complex. For us, Jesus is no self-help guide to a better life; rather Jesus gives hope and purpose in the midst of mystery. All of our following is done through faith – the gift of trusting in the death and resurrection of Jesus that has the power to set the captives free, heal the brokenhearted, and offer the forgiveness of sin.
Serving the City
First Lutheran Church of Carson, ECLA believes that God’s grace and forgiveness equips us to serve others, and by doing so we reflect the character of God. Because of this core value, our vision is bigger than our congregation. We find that as God fills us up as a community with faith, hope, and love, we are propelled into our schools, workplaces, homes, and neighborhood to love and serve others. Carson is a neighborhood with no shortage of need for compassion, justice, and mercy. Our belief is that the gospel community is created for great things such as these.
For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. — Ephesians 2:10
