Vision

Jesus unfold His Father’s vision to His disciples that “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples…you did not choose Me, but I chose and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you” (John 15:8, 16). Likewise, St. Paul assured us that “And whatever you do in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him” (Colossians 3:17). Therefore, the U.S.L.C. in cooperation with other Lutheran church body is committed to:

  1. Plant churches not only in the United States but also in South Sudan or Sudan and beyond. Church planting is one of the integral roles of the Christian as St. Paul reminded us that “And so I have made it my aim to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build on another man’s foundation, but as it written: To whom He was not announced, they shall see; And those who have not heard shall understand” (Romans 15:20-21).
  2. Promote unity, peace, and reconciliation to the South Sudanese community, both at home and in the diaspora, and to all those who need our outreach. This harmony of unity will provide opportunities for overcoming and understanding of differences. St. Paul says, “For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that he might reconcile them both to God in one body through cross, thereby putting to death the enmity” (Eph. 2:1417).
  3. Apostle Paul tells us to “Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep” (Rom. 12:15). Therefore, the U.S.L.C. with help from other Lutheran Church congregations will support orphans by providing scholarship and other relief assistance to not only orphans but to others who live in nadir of despair. We will also continue to pray, with God’s help to build schools, both Middle and High School for these underprivileged children and youth in South Sudan. For these children will be a seed of God’s church in the future.
  4. In cooperation with LCMS and other emerging ministries, the U.S.L.C. will work to translate into Dinka or other languages The Luther’s Small or Large Catechism and some other books regarded as standard of teaching by Lutheran congregation. This will enhance their understanding of why LCMS is quite unique in its teaching compared to other churches which have deviated from the Bible.
  5. Thank God for His continuous blessings and guidance, “For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, it will not tarry” (Habakkuk 2:3-4). May our actions glorify God.
