To nurture young children, youth, and their families
Learning about God’s love is more than just Sunday School and Confirmation, it is a lifetime of habits that begin as children. We strive to train young people to follow Jesus as part of a community, and support parents to raise families rooted in Christ’s grace.
To create inspiring worship
Worship is when we gather to hear the message of God’s unconditional love in Christ. We dedicate ourselves not just to hear the words of God’s love, but to creating together a lived experience of that love.
To equip members with personal faith for everyday life
Faith is a gift given by God, but strengthened through spiritual exercises. We coach each other to place our trust in Jesus, not just on Sunday morning, but throughout the joys and struggles of each day.
To instill a sense of belonging to a community of faith
To be part of the church is to be part of the body of Christ. We grow as individual members by connecting our unique identities into a shared a community with a common purpose.
To go out and serve the needs of the world
To be a follower of Jesus is to seek Christ in the face of strangers and neighbors alike. We encourage each other to work for the well-being of all God's children, both locally and globally,
and care for the environment which sustains them.
Faith Lutheran Church of Chico was organized under Pastor E. A. Haye on October 23rd, 1950 and the cornerstone of the original building was laid in 1952. Since then, Faith Lutheran has seen many changes, including the construction of a beautiful modern Sanctuary and Parish Hall.
In 1989 Faith Lutheran experienced a renewal in its facilities and its mission in Chico. We are a church of inclusion that embraces the reality of God's grace for all people. Everyone who seeks a better relationship with Jesus is welcome.
The church also serves as a vibrant and active member of the Chico community in many ways, from helping different community groups to feeding the homeless from our kitchen as well as serving as an active participant in the Chico Area Interfaith Council. Faith Lutheran looks forward to being an open and accepting place for all to worship God and serve his people.
