About Us

Who We Are

Mission Statement
In the name of our Lord and Savior,  Jesus Christ, we are a congregation where each person is honored and respected for their individual gifts and contributions.  We commit to making disciples by serving our local community through the generous sharing of our resources, deeds and faith so that all God's children will come to know the meaning of living a life in Christ.

Vision Statement
We will be a beacon of God's light for the entire Grand Traverse community.  Attracting individuals from every walk of life through our diligent discipleship, through our abundant generosity, and through our faithful witness to the love of Christ.
Once gathered, the Family of Faith will be nurtured through an exciting, yet meaningful, worship experience, encouraged by dynamic Christian teaching, strengthened by the daily use of God's Holy Word.

Statement of Values
Family of Faith is Lutheran in theology, practicing the unconditional love and acceptance of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We are in association with "Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ" which means that we are free in Christ, accountable to one another, rooted and grounded in the Scriptures and Lutheran Confessions, and that we are working to fulfill Christ's Great Commission to make disciples of all nations.
