Core Beliefs

Our Mission? Share God's Love, His Word and His Promise of Eternal Life for all people through Jesus Christ.

  • Worship

    Worship is responding to God's love in Christ Jesus by intentionally gathering to Honor the one true God who has revealed himself in the three persons of God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit.

    In worship we respond to God's call to be transformed by the power of His living  and active Word of truth.

    We respond to His call to confess that we have all sinned and fallen short of His perfection. We hear God's certain forgiveness of our sin through the finished work of His Son who humbled himself to take the punishment for all of humanities sin by suffering and dying on the cross. Then he laid His righteousness on our account so that in His name all who receive His gift of grace will have peace with God and eternal life with him after this world is finished. We respond to God's call to live in His gift of faith in community, where He shows us the various gifts of grace emanating from His gift of faith that flows from His love and  multiplies His power in and through his community of believers which make the church Christ

  • Fellowship

    Fellowship is intentionally lived out in response to God's command for His  people to Love Him with our whole heart and realized in the caring and compassionate acts of service in every area of life where everyone has value based on God's reality  and design. Our fellowship is defined by God through His word, the bible and compels all of His followers to be kind one to another, forgiving one another just as God  in Christ forgives us.


    Now in Christ, there is no one greater than the other. God has torn down the walls of division and shows no no special favor to anyone. Because God has leveled the human playing field, all have value in His eyes.

  • Outreach

    God sends his people into this world to share His life giving gift of forgiveness through Jesus Christ. After Jesus suffered and died for the sins of all people, He rose from the grave and showed himself  to His disciples and up to 500 people at one time. Then He ascended back to His heavenly home but not before commissioning His disciples to Go and make disciples of all people, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and the Son, and  the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey his commands and to remember, that He is always with them even to the end of the age. How is this done in a world that is drawn to so many various beliefs and disbeliefs about God?  Back to the basics of  Loving God with all  of our heart, soul and mind and thereby being empowered to love our neighbor as we are loved by God

What do Lutherans believe?

One of the most frequently asked questions we're asked is "Are Lutherans Christians?"

The answer is an emphatic YES!


Our church preaches the message of Christ found in the Holy Scriptures. We believe that the Bible is the revelation from God to man, a sure and sufficient answer to every question of faith and truth in this fast-moving, complex age.  God's book is the soul's firm support in a day when human foundations fail.


We believe that salvation comes from Christ's work on the cross, not anything that we have done or could ever do. We believe that it is by grace, through faith that we are saved (Ephesians 2:8). We believe that no person is beyond God's grace and mercy.


We also attempt to daily live out Matthew 22:36-40:
"Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?"


Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind'. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments (NIV).
