Lamb of God is a congregation that seeks to be Loving, Outreaching and Growing, Together in Christ.
We believe that God's vision for our congregation is to become a "Community of Missionaries" being discipled and cared for to share the Good News about Jesus with everyone we meet. We believe that God loves us and cares for us, and has brought us into a relationship with him through Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. Because of that great blessing, we now seek to care for others and share God’s love with them as well. Everything we do is about that mission.
As individuals, we seek to witness to God’s love in every moment of our lives, as we interact with our friends, neighbors, and family. As a community of believers, we also come together to provide a joint witness to the hope we have in Christ. In this section you’ll find information on some of the many ways that we go about that joint witness.
Here are the missions that we support:
Concordia University Texas is an award-winning institution of higher education, offering undergraduate and graduate degrees through a variety of delivery methods, including online and accelerated learning. A privately-held, accredited, liberal arts university, Concordia is under the auspices of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. It is a member of the highly respected Concordia University System in which more than 36,000 students are enrolled nationwide.
Journey to Dream equips and empowers youth to overcome adversity and live purposeful lives. Journey to Dream was born in 2004, founded on a single devotion: to support at-risk teens – those silently struggling with the isolation and chaos addiction and abuse so often bring. Since its inception, the organization has positively impacted more than 85,000 students through school assemblies, support groups, and community events – all aimed at empowering young people with the tools necessary to overcome adversity. Over the course of our work with youth, we discovered the hidden epidemic of youth homelessness, setting into motion our current and most challenging endeavor: Kyle’s Place.
Our mission is to launch faith communities where families are transformed through spiritual, educational, and economic development.
LSS/Upbring's mission is to break the cycle of child abuse by empowering children, families and communities. It’s not just about raising children in a safer environment. It’s about raising expectations for what a childhood should be. And it’s going to take all of us.
The Station College Ministry
The Station Denton at UNT is a community of students seeking to learn and grow in faith in and understanding of Jesus and what it means to live missional Christian lives. We are founded on the Grace, forgiveness, and redemption we have in Him, knowing that no matter who we've been or what we've done, Jesus loves you, and deeply desires you to know Him. Our faith in Jesus is holistic. We are not Christians on Sunday and then only a student, employee, boyfriend/girlfriend, etc. the other six days of the week. Jesus desires to bless and use every aspect of our lives to bring Him glory. This is why we meet weekly for bible studies, social events, and are restarting men's & women's accountability groups. We also spend some time away from UNT each semester on a retreat weekend. While we have met in the lobby (main floor) of the Business Leadership Building at 7:30 pm on Tuesdays for a while now, we have finally moved back to the newly completed student union! But be sure to check our Facebook page for updates as our meeting place sometimes moves!
Our purpose at UNT is to provide a community for students seeking to learn about God, the bible, and what it really means to live a Christian life. We hope that through time spent building relationships in a safe community of learning and encouragement, we may come to know and understand Jesus Christ, His love, His Grace, and His hope for our lives and yours better. For more details, contact us by email.
University Lutheran Church is a college outreach ministry of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) to the University of Texas at Austin. It is our belief that today’s college students are just as much broken sinners as the rest of humanity, and seek to provide dying people with the life-giving gifts of the Gospel, as well as connect them with fellow believers.
Texas District Missions
Lamb of God supports the mission projects of the Texas District of the LCMS. In particular, we have been involved with supporting Texas Partners in Mission, a project of the Texas District, a ministry to support the development of missions in Texas, Disciples of the Way Ministries, a mission to Muslims living in Texas. Click on any of the above links for more information.
Lamb of God supports missions and missionaries across the globe by partnering with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod at the national level, as well as supporting LCMS World Missions. In addition, Lamb of God supports several long-term missionaries as they seek to share God’s love with the people they serve.
We support these missions first and foremost through regular prayer. Click here to find out more about our Prayer Ministry. We also seek to provide spiritual resources to long-term missionaries in the form of “circular letters”—CDs of sermons and Bible studies, so that the missionary can hear God’s Word in his or her heart language even as they seek to share God’s Word to others in their own heart language. Finally, we support specific missionaries with financial contributions. Below you will find information on some of the specific missionaries we support.
