The members and friends of Cross Lutheran Church welcome all persons, regardless of ethnic heritage, religious backgrounds, socio-economic status or sexual orientation — in other words, everyone.
We are a congregation based heavily in the goals of
Cross operates many programs and services targeted at assisting those in our community. Over the years, many of our initiatives have grown, flourished, and become self-sustaining organizations in their own right, and continue to help the greater Milwaukee area today.
Striving to live into the life and goals Jesus has set for us.
“To share the Good News of God’s love in Jesus Christ, to serve our community and the world, and to advocate for justice.”
“As a converted community, we are challenged by God’s Word to invite, affirm, nurture and empower people to be a transforming force for God’s vision and justice.”
Let’s Break it down…
A Converted Community
Through our baptism and acceptance of Jesus Christ, we have been changed in ways that we cannot begin to imagine. We also strive to change ourselves and our behavior to be in line with what Jesus has taught us.
The Word of God, the Bible, remains a critical piece of our faith. Informed reading, guided by the Spirit, helps us to understand God’s Message for us in today’s ever-changing world.
Invite, Affirm, Nurture and Empower
As Jesus commanded, we welcome and invite all to join us in worship, service and community. We strive to be accepting of all, regardless of age, race, gender, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, and the many other factors that society says should divide us. We affirm the right of all individuals to God’s Grace, to be a part of the Body of Christ at Cross Church, to find community and healing, and to develop and share their talents as the Spirit moves in their lives.
A Transforming Force for God’s Vision of Justice
“Thy Kingdom Come” is something that we strive to build right here, starting today. Time after time, Jesus shows us the way to make our world a better place; we only have to follow his words and example. At Cross, we strive to be the change we want to see. We work to be that “small group of dedicated individuals” who can, indeed, change the world. This is our history; this is our future.
