Our logo consists of the Christ Monogram on a shield
and the words "Christ Lutheran Church - ALCC".
According to St. Paul, Christians constantly stand in a spiritual battle.
Since the first century, the Church has been under attack. Open
persecution of Christians is still a reality today in many countries of the
world. From the beginning, the Church also had to battle heresies, i.e.
false teachings. Again, our age is no exception in that regard. Each
Christian stands in his or her personal struggles with sin and
temptation. "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God", St. Paul
says in Romans 3:23. St. Paul also advises us what to do in our
struggles: We are to put on "the whole armor of God" (see Ephesians
6:11-17). One element of that armor is the "shield of faith" which protects
us against "the flaming arrows of the evil one" (Ephesians 6:16).
This shield of faith is the basis for our logo.
The shield bears the Christ Monogram. What looks like our letters "X"
and "P", are the Greek letters "Chi" and "Rho", the first two letters of the
Greek word for "Christ". The Christ monogram has been used by the
Church since the early days of Christianity as a symbol for her Lord
Jesus Christ. The word "Christ" itself means
"anointed one", which is a way of saying "king". For
Christians, Jesus Christ is the "anointed One". He
is our King. Thus, the color of the shield in our
logo is royal blue, which symbolizes the kingship
