Lord of Life is a community of people called together by God's Holy Spirit who confess Christ as Lord. Lord of Life is a church whose doors are open to all people. With the guidance of the Holy Spirit we strive to educate, comfort, support, and share love in Christ's name. We believe worship is of most importance in our life together as we receive God's love through Word and Sacrament. We will be involved with seeking justice in our community, state, nation, and world. We value the dignity and worth of every human being as created in God's image and forgiven by Christ. We are a church sent to serve in the name of Jesus who came as Servant of all.
Lord of Life began as a mission congregation in the summer of 1978. The first worship service was held at Cedar Island Elementary School. Pastor Paul Hammarberg, mission developer, was also Lord of Life's first called pastor. The charter membership consisted of 412 members, an unusually large number for a mission congregation.
