Description OUR VISION

Multi-Denominational
Multi-Generational
Multi-Ethnic

What are we moving toward as a community of faith and individual followers of Jesus Christ? The Vision of Saint Matthew is to become increasingly:

Multi-Denominational - Saint Matthew is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). Our Lutheran heritage is important as a theological (versus cultural) anchor to our past and guide to our future. At the same time, we want to be a missionary, neighborhood church that's making a world of difference. The Holy Spirit has led the ELCA to have full ecumenical partnerships with several other Christian denominations, and our pastors, staff, and leadership embrace the Christian traditions and expressions of these partnerships.

Multi-Generational - Saint Matthew values its oldest members and always wants to include its youngest disciples in every dimension of our life and ministry together. This compels us to always evaluate our worship, our community life, and how our proclamation and demonstration of the Christian faith impacts our oldest and youngest members together.

Multi-Ethnic - It is a scandal to the Good News of Jesus Christ that any Christian community would be segregated by race, culture, socio-economic status, or any other humanly-devised barrier or division. Jesus removed every dividing wall, and we should never hide behind the comfort of race, clan, or tradition. We believe this must begin with our leaders. To be a neighborhood church making a world of difference, we must reflect the diversity of the wider neighborhood in which we live and minister.
