Resurrection Lutheran Church exists to proclaim Jesus Christ as Saviour, in an open accepting fellowship, a loving caring community that reaches out to all people to serve Christ through worshipping, teaching, learning, sharing and giving of ourselves to meet the needs of this congregation, the community and the world, as the Holy Spirit moves us.
What we believe
First and foremost, we believe that God loves you no matter what!
We are a community of Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) Lutheran Christians who come together for worship, fellowship, learning and service to others. Although we are a diverse group from all walks of life, backgrounds and generations, we are united around the essential beliefs and core values we have embraced from our rich Lutheran heritage.
In her book Reclaiming the ‘L’ Word, Pastor Kelly Fryer expresses our essential beliefs well through five simple, yet profound guiding principles. They are:
- Jesus is Lord
- Everyone is welcome
- Love changes people
- Everybody has something to offer
- The world needs what we have
These beliefs and values guide us in how we approach things, how we relate to each other, and how we make people feel welcome within our congregation.
Council members are elected by the congregation membership each year at the Annual General Meeting in March. Terms are normally for three years.
