The Sacrament of Holy Baptism
For Lutherans, the Sacrament of Baptism is the first step in a lifelong journey of commitment and discipleship. Whether we are baptized as infants or adults, Baptism is the Church's way of celebrating and enacting the embrace of God. In Holy Baptism, God bestows grace to us. It is how God claims us as children of God, clothes us with the righteousness of Christ, and seals us with the Holy Spirit so that we can go and share Christ with others.
Matthew 28:18-20 "Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age." To inquire about the Sacrament of Baptism, please contact the Pastor or call in to our church office.
The Sacrament of Holy Communion
As Lutherans, we believe the Eucharist (Holy Communion) is the real presence of Jesus Christ and that He lovingly offers Himself as spiritual nourishment to us. Christ offers gifts of forgiveness, life, and salvation when we receive Communion.
We offer wine or grape juice and bread/or gluten free wafers during our communion times. Children who do not take communion yet, are welcome to come forward to receive a pastoral blessing. We offer weekly communion.
Authority of the Holy Scriptures
Isaiah 40:8 "The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our Lord stands forever!" We believe the Bible is the sole written authority for faith and Christian practice. The Holy Spirit inspired persons to write the Bible, to record God's truth.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
