Who We Are

We are members of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS).


Our congregation accepts and preachs the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century.


The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.


GRACE ALONE — God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him, and do not deserve His love.  He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.  


FAITH ALONE — By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased forgiveness and eternal life for them.  Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers.  God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.  


SCRIPTURE ALONE — The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ.  It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.



What We Believe

About GOD  

There is only one True God who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.




All people are sinful, that is, not living in perfect obedience to God’s will.



About the BIBLE 

The Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired (GOD breathed) and inerrant (without error) Word of God, and the only authoritative source and norm for Christian doctrine and practice.




We are saved only by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ, which is a free gift of the Holy Spirit to us (Ephesians 2:8-10).

People can never make up for their sins by self-improvement or good works.

Only by trusting in Jesus Christ and His  forgiveness can a person be saved from sin's penalty and eternal damnation.




That God sent His Son, Jesus, to suffer the penalty for all the sins of all people.




That because of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, forgiveness is available to all.




That God forgives all who, by faith, confess their sins and believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior.




That forgiveness is delivered in the Word of God and in the sacraments of Holy Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
