About Our Congregation

Welcome!  This is the family of Christ at First Lutheran Church, West Barnstable.

We welcome you to our pages and to our family. We hope you will feel, in our presence and through our faces, the power of Christ Jesus arisen and enabling us, Christ’s people, into service for all!

 

All are welcome here! Come and worship. Come and serve.

 

We believe that God loves us and that God forgives our sins because of Jesus Christ’s action in His life, death, resurrection and ascension. By faith in Jesus Christ, we are children in the Kingdom of God and are given the gift of eternal life.

 

Our mission is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ and to live our lives in that FAITH. Our mission includes reaching out to meet basic human needs and addressing current issues.

 

We are all stewards of all God’s gifts to us. God calls us to use our time, talents, and treasures both inside and outside the church.

 

Who we are:

We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  As Lutherans we believe that our relationship to God is based solely upon God's Grace made real to us in the life, death, and resurrection of God's Son, Jesus.  Though God's Word and the Sacraments, that love is freely communicated and given to each of us.  Daily we can grow in that new life that God's grace creates in us.    In thanksgiving, we seek to share with others what we have first received by word (witness) and service.  Worship, where we hear God's Word proclaimed and experience the Sacraments, is central to our life together as is also prayer, Bible study, mutual support, fellowship and service to those in need in our commnity and the world. 

 

Our Mission Statement

To nurture the spiritual growth of each person at First Lutheran Church; empowering our faith community to know Christ more fully and to take bold steps to make Christ known.
