A Few Words About Us

Mission in Christ was formed in 2010 as the first congregation in Iowa of the North American Lutheran Church (the NALC).  We are part of the Iowa Mission District which, in turn, is part of the Midwestern Area.

Our Core Values

Christ Centered - Jesus Christ, revealed in Scripture, is Lord of the Church and the only Savior of the World.  The Holy Scriptures are the norm for all matters of our life and faith and the Lutheran Confessions, a faithful witness to the Scripture.

Mission Driven - The Great Commission is our only mission.  We go taking the Gospel to the ends of the earth, making Disciples committed to Christ, baptizing in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, teaching people all that Jesus Commands, trusting in His constant presence and power.

Traditionally Grounded - We are a part of the faithful witness of the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church across time and space.  We endorse the creeds, forms, practices, Word and Sacrament ministry and worship that are consistent with the Scripture.

Congregationally Focused - The congregation is the front line for mission and ministry.  As interdependent partners we strengthen every local congregation to make it the most effective instrument possible for accomplishing Christ's purposes.
