Our purpose at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church derived from the final words of Jesus to His followers. These words are known as the Great Commission found in:
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
- MATTHEW 28:19-20 NIV
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe…” Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.
- MARK 16:15-17, 20 NIV
Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church exists to reach people with the life-giving message of Jesus that they might become fully devoted followers of Christ.
“He is the one we proclaim, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone fully mature in Christ. To this end I strenuously contend with all the energy Christ so powerfully works in me.”
- Colossians 1:28-29 (NIV)
