Living Our Faith
Who We Are
St. Lucas is a congregational church family continually striving to actively live out God’s calling to love Him, love others, and make disciples of Christ.
We believe God’s people should experience His love through fellowship in a supportive community of believers. Through engaged experiences in the life of the church and by the giftedness and grace empowerment of the Holy Spirit, we trust that members of the body will be motivated to active involvement in joyful worship, devoted study of the Scriptures, heartfelt prayer, and sacrificial service both locally and to the world.
A Message from Pastor Dan Peterson
Here is where we go with the gospel of Jesus
Here is where people are invited together
Here is where we mature and minister as a team
Congregational Life of Loving God and Loving Others
Here is where we support and practice the presence of Christ by meeting one another’s needs
Here is where we recognize and train leaders to utilize their gifts and passions in order to minister well to others.
Our denominational history dates to the Reformation in both England and Germany, while our evangelical roots were established with the original German settlers of the area. Yet another strand of history reaches to the Pilgrims who came to this country and founded the Congregational Church in 1620. (see also History of St. Lucas)
Conservative Congregational Christian Conference (4Cs)
St. Lucas Community Church is a member of the Conservative Congregational Christian Conference (CCCC or 4Cs). It is the oldest organization of continuing Congregational churches in America today. CCCC is a theologically conservative denomination believing strongly in the autonomy of each local church under the headship of Christ. Its member churches include those who are Congregational, Christian, and Evangelical and Reformed in their background, as well as independent Community churches. Member ministers also come from diverse backgrounds.
Though CCCC is solidly committed to the basic doctrines of the Christian faith, it allows for diversity in many areas where Christians have tended to disagree. And though members hold strong biblical convictions, they do not believe that Christians should divide over secondary issues. As an evangelical denomination, in obedience to Jesus Christ, we work together to advance the kingdom of our Lord through evangelism, church planting, and missions.
