As a a mission congregation of the Association of American Lutheran Churches,
our local Christian community can be described as:


We know that God has saved us by His loving grace through faith
in His One and Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ, apart from our religious works and righteousness.

We believe the Holy Bible is the divinely inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God,
containing the divine truth and guidance all mankind needs for Eternal Life through God’s son.

We faithfully hold that God’s Word has greater authority over mankind’s opinions,
human emotions, cultural or political decisions, and progressive interpretations of the Holy Bible.


We are a small but growing church family, where everyone is important and has opportunity to
learn, heal, and grow in God’s truth and love, both giving and receiving while serving one another.

We value being genuine in our relationships with God and each other;
being honest, forgiving, and encouraging with the humility and kindness of Christ.

We desire to share God’s grace and compassion with all, comforting and helping
our family and others through times of trouble and persecution.


We desire to respond to the Christ’s call to follow Him personally,
as one of His disciples in the place where we live and where He might send us.

We offer our God-given natural and supernatural gifts to build up Christ’s Church
and advance the Kingdom of God, being witnesses in the power and fire of God’s love.

We await in sure hope for our Savior to finish the good work He began in us, being made holy,
while looking forward towards our heavenly home with God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit forever.

More About Us:

Our Sunday worship services follow a historical liturgy with a blend of contemporary songs and traditional hymns, sermon, and weekly Holy Eucharist.

We know God has called us to speak His truth in love to reach all people with the knowledge of God, in both word and action.

We believe in the sanctity of life and respect for all, because all people have been created in the image and likeness of God.

We accept God’s loving and good design for marriage between a biological man and woman, and for procreation of children.

We are called to seek first the Kingdom of God and its righteousness, but as dual citizens, we also love our nation.

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.
