Faith Lutheran Church is a community of people — people seeking to love God with all their hearts, souls, minds, and strength, and to love others as much as they love themselves. What draws us together is not our individual beliefs but our common desire to grow our connections with Jesus Christ and the people in the communities where we live. Faith’s mission, “changing lives through the power of Jesus,” is being fulfilled as we help people connect to God and to the missions that God has placed in their lives. Evidence of a changed life is when people come to know who they are, whose they are, and who they will serve in Jesus’ name.
First, we are Christians. Second, we practice a 500-year-old tradition called Lutheranism. We believe faith, at its essence, is a living relationship with God through Jesus, and through this faith, life and forgiveness are found. At Faith Lutheran Church our focus is to bring restoration to the world and help the world be what God originally intended it to be. We use the Bible to grow in relationship with Jesus and know God’s intentions for us and the world. As we receive God’s love we also learn how to return that love to God through worship and service.
When you walk through the doors of Faith, you’ll be surrounded by people of all kinds — from college students and middle-aged adults to senior citizens, young families, and empty nesters. Some of us are conservative in our faith and politics and others are more liberal. Some of us dress up for church, while others wear shorts and flip flops. Our congregation members live in Golden or drive in from Arvada, Evergreen, Lakewood, Superior, or beyond. We’re all different in our own ways, but we are the same in our desire to grow in relationship with Jesus and to serve others.
To us, “community” extends beyond our walls. Our church is part of the whole body of Christ in Golden and the rest of the world. We consistently connect with other local congregations of all denominations to love and serve the community in Jesus’ name. As part of the Golden Family of Churches, we work with area other churches to meet health needs in our town. We are also part of the Together Church of Golden, which collaborates on children and youth ministries, missions, worship, and prayer.
Becoming a Member
You are welcome to participate in all the activities at Faith and benefit from our available resources from the very first day you connect with our church. Once you decide to commit to continued spiritual growth and our mission, you are invited to become a member.
Membership starts by participating in a workshop that outlines who we are and why we are here, what it means to be a disciple of Jesus, and what it looks like to follow our mission in His name. Membership here is not so much about indoctrination as it is about learning how to connect more deeply with God and with others.
