A Christ-Centered Church...
We are a Christ-centered, confessional congregation holding the historic Lutheran faith. We value faithfulness in adhering to the Holy Scriptures in doctrine and practice.
A Biblical Church...
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, inerrant and authoritative Word of God. We use the Bible as the sole authority in all of our Christian doctrines or teachings. We believe as Scripture says, "that man is saved by God's grace through faith in Christ as our Lord and Savior."
A Word and Sacrament Church...
We gather together regularly for worship and to hear the Word of God taught in its truth and purity. We believe in God's precious and powerful Means of Grace, including the Sacrament of the Altar and the Sacrament of Holy Baptism.
A Confessional Church...
We believe, teach, confess, and practice individually and as a congregation, the Lutheran Confessions as contained in the Book Of Concord as a true, concise, and correct exposition of God's Word.
A Liturgical Church...
We use a liturgy, taken from Holy Scripture and from the early days of the Christian Church. We are never ashamed of what it says, nor hesitant to use such glorious and unchanging truths to proclaim the true God of heaven and earth in an ever-changing and uncertain modern world.
An Educational Church...
We maintain an active, loving and competent Christian Education staff for the Children in Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. We offer Bible Classes, Catechetical Instruction, and various other group activities within God's Church for further spiritual education, service, and growth in God's kingdom.
A Growing Church...
We are a vibrant, mission-minded congregation, founded ten years ago; growing spiritually and maturing in our faith in Jesus Christ. We take an active part in support of mission work at home and abroad.
A Church With A Christian Purpose...
We have a desire and purpose to bring people to Christ and Christ to people. By God's grace, we will individually and corporately grow spiritually in our faith, and find the true peace that God gives in our daily lives.
A Church That Practices What We Preach...
We do not just pay lip service to our Lord, but also willing lifelong service. We practice what we believe teach and confess!
