Being “Lutheran,” our congregations accept and teach 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 short phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.

Being Lutheran

We Believe

We Believe the Holy Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and the only source and norm of our teaching and practice.

We Worship

We worship the Triune God, the Father as Creator, the Son, Jesus Christ, as resurrected and ascended Savior, and the Holy Spirit as Sanctifier.

We Administer

We Administer and receive the sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion as the means by which God offers and confirms to the believer the forgiveness of sins and His blessings in Christ. We look forward to our resurrection from the dead and to eternal life with Christ in the glory of heaven.

With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God’s Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.

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 and won 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.

We respond to God’s Grace by:


Growing strong in His Word


Reaching out to All People


Assembling together


Caring for others


Extending the Kingdom
