Who are we?




A church with a deep love for Jesus and His message of Hope. Teaching people about Christ is our mission and passion. We have two church locations: Laguna Woods and Aliso Viejo. We also have a full-day preschool and a Christian school, K-8. We are a Christian Community for all Generations: A church of diverse ages and interests, that worships God together, studies God’s Word together and serves God’s people together.

Our Leadership




We are especially blessed to have these servants who lead God's ministry here at Lutheran Church of the Cross. One thing special about this church is the pastoral care that is given. If you have any questions about us please feel free to connect directly with any one of our pastors or ministry directors

What We Believe




Lutherans are Christians who have a very clear definition of what we believe and it can be broken down into five statements about our faith.

BIBLE ALONE

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the absolute and ultimate authority for our lives. 

II Timothy 3:16


FAITH ALONE

We believe we are a fallen humanity and need salvation. It is by faith in Jesus the Son of God, that we are saved.

Romans 3:19-28


GRACE ALONE

We believe it is by the Grace of God and the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ that we are forgiven of our sins.

Ephesians 2:8-9


CHRIST ALONE

We believe Jesus is the only pathway to God.

John 14:1-6


TO THE GLORY OF GOD ALONE

We believe we are created to serve and worship God and that all glory be given to Him.

Ephesians 2:10
