Biblical and theological foundation

Members of the First Lutheran Church of Carson, ELCA are called and privileged to participate in God’s work in the world. God empowers us for the mission He has given each and every member through baptism. Gathering a community of believers, who have been justified by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8), we do not describe mission in terms of our own work but that God may be glorified and restoration to our community that can only be accomplished through Christ. First Lutheran Church of Carson seeks the guidance of the Spirit in our planning, while expecting surprising developments and unanticipated opportunities. Knowing and expecting God to always show up. Surprises our hearts and minds. We have the courage to explore the world as saints and sinners who are certain of God’s promises and of the confident hope that all God’s loving purposes will be fulfilled when our risen Lord Jesus Christ returns (1 John 3:2).

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me
