PLC's Mission, Purpose, Vision and Values
Our Mission Statement...
As followers of Jesus, we joyfully teach and practice loving God and loving others while inspiring all to follow Jesus.
Our Purpose Statement...
United in Christ's love, we exist to magnify God as we joyfully worship Him, welcome people into membership in His family, teach them the Holy Scriptures so they may grow to maturity in Christ, equip them to serve in the ministry of His church, and send them out on God's mission to the world.
Our Vision for the Future...
PLC is where 2000 people worship every week. We have a reputation in the community for joyful services where God's presence is felt and lives are transformed through the power of the Gospel. We're known for our life-changing Bible-based education programs for all ages. It is obvious that here the Great Commandment and Great Commission are taught and practiced. Here families are strengthened, individuals are nurtured and children are our most precious resource.
The Good News is that God has acted on our behalf in Jesus and through Jesus we can experience a life-transforming relationship with God.
And Our Values...
People: We affirm and uphold the God-given worth of each individual, helping people discover their God-given potential through a relationship with Jesus.
Outreach: We seek to present the love of Christ in relevant and engaging ways with those not yet connected to Christ or the Church. Because lost people matter to God, we will make them the priority of our missions in our own community and to the uttermost parts of the world.
Innovative Excellence: We will do whatever it takes within the context of the Gospel to be a church that reaches new people and helps them grow in their relationship with Christ.
Christian Service: We equip people to live a Christ-centered life, help them discover their God-given gifts and encourage them to use their gifts to serve Christ and the community.
Integrity: We pursue honesty, openness, fairness and grace in dealing with others and in managing the mission of PeÃ±asquitos Lutheran Church.
Prayer: We envelop all we are and do in prayer, seeking to put God first in every aspect of our ministry.
