Spiritual Renewal Process
Indiana-Kentucky Synod


The IK Synod will grow into a people of God who:

  • Clearly identify the presence of the Spirit
  • Eagerly tell our shared story as the body of Christ
  • Follow the Spirit to new frontiers
  • Are transformed for service to God and neighbor


As we live into the IK Synod Mission Statement: Empower, equip and encourage each other to make Christ known, members of congregations in the synod will:

  • Grow in their connection with God in their spiritual walk
  • Articulate their faith
  • Express what it means to be a Lutheran Christian
  • Develop comfortable ways to share Jesus with others
  • Talk about how Jesus makes a difference in their lives
  • Recognize the work of the Spirit in, through and among them
  • Share stories of how they have seen and experienced God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) at work in their lives, in their congregations and in the world

Scripture Theme Verse: Matthew 3:11-12 (The Message)

11-12 “I’m baptizing you here in the river, turning your old life in for a kingdom life. The real action comes next: The main character in this drama—compared to him I’m a mere stagehand—will ignite the kingdom life within you, a fire within you, the Holy Spirit within you, changing you from the inside out. He’s going to clean house—make a clean sweep of your lives. He’ll place everything true in its proper place before God; everything false he’ll put out with the trash to be burned.”
