MISSION STATEMENT
Our Mission is to give glory to God through the proclamation of the Word of God and through worship and the sacraments, and to build up the body of Christ, that we might give witness to God’s love and salvation. We encourage all members to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ, to seek to do God’s will, and to use their time, talents, and possessions in service to God and all people, especially those of the household of faith (Gal. 6:10).
OUR   PHILOSOPHY
Love        Grow       Worship       Share        Serve
Love
We are a family, members of God’s household (Eph. 2:19). Therefore, we worship together, have fun together, and care and pray for each other. The many programs and events here bring us closer together!
Grow
Paul says that a church should help you become a mature Christ-follower (Eph. 4:12-13). We agree! We offer many faith-fueling classes for all ages throughout the week. Join anytime!
Worship
Jesus said the most important commandment is to love God with all of your heart, soul, and mind (Matt. 22:37-38). Worship does just that! At St. Mark, we offer 3 unique worship experiences each weekend, along with special services throughout the year.
Share
Good News is meant to be shared (Mark 16:15). At St. Mark we share the awesome news about Jesus through supporting missions and missionaries, prison ministry, and other outreach and training opportunities.
Serve
Jesus said the second most important commandment is to love your neighbor as yourself (Matt. 22:39-40). We do this through several ministry opportunities where we get to meet the spiritual, emotional, relational, and physical needs in the church and local community.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
From  Article II of the  SMLC Constitution
1. The Congregation accepts all the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments as a whole and in all their parts as the divinely inspired, revealed, and inerrant Word of God and submits to this as the only infallible authority in all matters of faith and life.
 
2. As brief and true statements of the doctrines of the Word of God, the Congregation accepts and confesses the following standards: (1) the ancient ecumenical creeds: the Apostles’, the Nicene, and the Athanasian; (2) the Unaltered Augsburg Confession and Luther’s Small Catechism.
 
3. As further elaboration of and in accord with these Lutheran standards, the Congregation also receives the other documents in the Book of Concord of 1580: the Apology, Luther’s Large Catechism, the Smalcald Articles, and the Formula of Concord; and recognizes them as normative for their theology.
