WHAT WE BELIEVE

OUR MISSION

Matthew 28:18–20 

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

OUR  BELIEFS

1 and 2 Peter Bible Study_edited.jpg

THE BIBLE

is written so that we see our sin and believe that God the Father sent God the Son into our world to pay the debt we owe because of our sin.  The Bible speaks powerfully to the forgiveness of sins, which is found in Jesus alone.  It teaches what it means to live a life of love toward God and others, as well as a life of integrity and purpose concerning God’s design for each of us. It was written by men as they were directed by God’s Holy Spirit, and so it is timeless truth without error or contradiction.  

HOLY COMMUNION

Here at Our Savior Lutheran Church, we celebrate Holy Communion every Sunday.  It is the true body and blood of our Lord Jesus Christ under the bread and the wine, for Christians to eat and to drink.  Jesus himself started this practice.  The Lord’s Supper assures Christians of the forgiveness of our sins and draws us closer to the Lord and His people.  If  you believe this and are baptized, please come join us at the Altar for the Lord’s Supper. 

THE CHURCH

The Church is the body of all Christian beliefs, of which He is the Head.  The Church consists of everyone, everywhere, who has a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. “For we were all baptized by one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink” (1 Corinthians 12:13). 

OF SCRIPTURE

We teach that the Holy Scriptures differ from all other books in the world in that they are the very Word of God. They are the Word of God because the holy men of God who wrote the Scriptures wrote only that which the Holy Spirit communicated to them by inspiration, 2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21.  

We also teach regarding the Holy Scriptures that they are given by God to the Christian Church for the foundation of faith, Eph. 2:20. Hence the Holy Scriptures are the sole source from which all doctrines proclaimed in the Christian Church must be taken and therefore, too, the sole rule and norm by which all teachers and doctrines must be examined and judged.

OF FAITH

 "For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." Eph. 2:8-10

Ephesians 2:10 comes after Ephesians 2:8–9, not only sequentially but also conceptually and chronologically. We are not saved by being good, but we are saved for the purpose of doing good.
