Christ Lutheran Church is a part of the family of God through Holy Baptism.  Our mission is threefold:  (1)  To promote the growth of the family of God through the sacraments, worship, Bible study, and Christian fellowship and unity; and, (2) To be of service to the family of God in meeting their needs and concerns spiritually, socially, and physically; and, (3) To provide financial and prayer support to local, state, national, and world missions to multiply the Christian Church.

Dr. Martin Luther's seal expresses his theology and his faith.  He designed it himself.

bullet In the center is a black cross indicative of Christ's dreadful sacrifice on the cross for every sinner who ever lived.
bullet The cross is in the center of a red heart, to show that faith causes love, joy and peace to grow in the human heart.
bullet The red heart is on a white rose (Luther's favorite flower) because white is the color of angels and blessed spirits.
bullet The white rose is against a blue-sky background to symbolize the Christian's hope for the coming joys of heaven.
bullet The seal is enclosed in a gold ring, showing that the bliss of heaven is unending. 

 
Luther's seal is not used as an official symbol of The Lutheran Church -- Missouri Synod.  However, it is incorporated into the Synod's official seal to show our acceptance of Luther's doctrines.  The seal has been used by Lutherans worldwide.
