Our Mission, Vision and Values


Compelled by the love of God and our faith in Jesus Christ, Peace Lutheran Church – a diverse people of faith – in partnership with Peace Community Center, seeks to realize God’s dream for the world through worship, learning, giving and serving.


We believe that God’s vision for Peace is to be a diverse community of faith in the Hilltop where all are welcome: a community that is Spirit-filled, compassionate, healthy, reconciled and just.


We seek to realize God’s dream for the world by living out these values:

  • Courage – We respond to God’s call with boldness, creativity and honesty, engaging the realities of life with perseverance and joy.
    “Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” — Joshua 1:9
  • Diversity – We invite, welcome, honor and respect people of all ages, cultures and walks of life. We encourage people to use their unique, God-given gifts and abilities.
    “For as in one body we have many members, and not all members have the same function so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members of one another. We have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us.” — Romans 12:4-6
  • Community – We listen, build relationships, grow in faith and experience God’s grace as we work together in our urban Hilltop neighborhood and larger community.
    “As God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, meekness and patience.” — Colossians 3:12
  • Justice – We advocate for the dignity of all people by addressing basic needs, empowerment through education, and working toward a socially just world.
    “He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?” — Micah 6:8
All are welcome at Peace! We are a diverse community of welcome for people of all ethnic and cultural heritages, ages and generations, educational and financial backgrounds, gender identities and sexual orientations, spiritual and religious preferences, gifts and abilities! Centered in Jesus and his love, we believe that every human being is created in the image of God, whose Spirit gathers us into one community of faith in our Hilltop neighborhood. You are a blessing to Peace! We welcome your presence, your voice, your gifts, your service, your leadership, and our shared life together in community!
