Our Logo, Our Mission
Like all families, Australian and New Zealand Lutherans have their own unique story. Our logo helps us to tell our story. It represents how we see ourselves as two nations under the Southern Cross – created by God, redeemed by Jesus Christ and empowered by the Holy Spirit to serve the people of our two nations and the world.
The blue background represents water. The fluidity of water is reflected in God's character. He is constant and faithful, but he is always moving; you cannot ever capture or contain him. Water is life; without water, you will quickly die. Many people are dead inside because they do not have a life with God. Water also makes us clean. Lutherans believe that no matter how bad you have been, God wants to wash away every trace of your past and make you brand new again.
Our tagline, where love comes to life, reflects the heart and soul of our mission. In every district and department of the Lutheran Church of Australia, in every congregation and school, and in every Australian and New Zealander who identifies as Lutheran, we want to be places where love comes to life. In other words, we want people to see the love, grace, forgiveness and compassion of Jesus Christ coming to them through every place and every person in our church.
