church frontageWelcome to Our Savior Lutheran Church. We hope this site will help you learn more about us and our witness for Christ. Our church is a community of believers who hold dear the Holy Scripture as God's own Word and truth, without error. Our Savior Lutheran Church has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community. It is good that we should be together to pray, praise and give thanks, and to place ourselves under the Holy Word of God for growth and direction. If you do not have a church home, or if we can serve you in any way, please join us at Our Savior Lutheran Church.


The Lord's Supper is celebrated at this congregation in the confession and glad confidence that, as he says, our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine but his very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sins and to strengthen our union with him and with one another. Our Lord invites to his table those who trusts his words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love as he forgives and loves us, that they may show forth his death until he comes.


Because those who eat and drink our Lord's body and blood unworthily do so to  their great harm and because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith, which is confessed at this altar, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who hold a confession differing from that of this congregation and The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, and yet desire to receive the sacrament, are asked first to speak with the pastor.


We Believe . . .


  • that the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God, and the only source and authority for all matters of faith and life.
  • that humankind is saved by the grace of God through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
  • that this faith is to express itself in a life of love to God and service to our fellow men.

 

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.


Being “Lutheran,” our congregation accepts and teaches 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 short phrases: Grace alone, Scripture alone, Faith 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.

 

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.

 

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.


The word “Synod” in The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod comes from the Greek words that mean “walking together.” It has rich meaning in our church body, because the congregations voluntarily choose to belong to the Synod. Diverse in their service, these congregations hold to a shared confession of Jesus Christ as taught in Holy Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions.


The congregations of the Synod are “confessional.” They hold to the Lutheran Confessions as the correct interpretation and presentation of Biblical doctrine. Contained in The Book of Concord: The Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, these statements of belief were put into writing by church leaders during the 16th century. The simplest of these is Luther's Small Catechism. The Augsburg Confession  gives more detail on what Lutherans believe.
