Chapter Challenge

In order to encourage the development of Augustana District Chapters, the Augustana District Council has authorized three (3) grants, up to $5,000 each, to establish Augustana’s first Chapters. Each grant will be authorized and granted by the District Council upon review of the completed application.

The District Council welcomes all chapter ideas that will help further the ministry and mission of the Augustana District. Chapter leader applicants are asked to describe their chapter idea on the form provided. The only stipulation is that chapter development focus on at least one (if not all three) of Augustana’s main tenets (described below): 

Theology. Church. Mission.

Theology

Theology

“The Word of God is Jesus Christ[2], the proclamation of him[3], and the Holy
Scriptures[4]. This Word functions as both law and gospel, which need to be distinguished, but not separated. The law orders society and convicts us of sin, showing us our need for a Savior[5]. The gospel is the power of God that liberates us from sin, death, and the power of the devil, and brings us, by grace, from death to life[6].

2 John 1:1, 14, 3 Matthew 18:20; I , John 1:1, 2, 4 II Timothy 3:16, 5 Smalcald, Part III, Article II. The Law, 6 Romans 1:16

Chruch

Church

Sinners are made right with God by grace alone through faith alone on account of Christ alone. This is the article of faith by which the church stands or falls.”[1] 1 Augustana IV; Smalcald, Part II, Article 1: “Nothing in this article can be given up or compromised.”
Mission Partners

Mission

Christ commanded that his Word be proclaimed[7]. Through it, the Holy Spirit works faith when and where he pleases[8] and repentant sinners are elected unto salvation. Christians live out their earthly lives as totally justified and totally sinful[9].
