Faith and Life

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom... Proverbs 1:7

These things are written that you may believe
that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.
John 20:31

What does this mean?

The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the source of our faith and life. The Only True and Living God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – has given us His Word. The Bible is the pure, clear fountain of truth for our congregation and the whole world. God uses His Word to call us together and gives us new life to live in faith toward Him and fervent love toward one another. We are committed to receiving all that our Lord Jesus Christ has taught us in His Word and to living by faith alone in Him and His promises.

I will speak of Your testimonies before kings,
and I will not be ashamed.
Psalm 119:46

What does this mean?

Having recieved the Word of God, we gladly confess it both in our congregation and in our community. We subscribe to the Book of Concord, the clear and authoritative collection of the Lutheran Church’s statement of faith drawn out of Holy Scripture (an online version of the Book of Concord can be found at We are committed to the task of making disciples through Holy Baptism and teaching so that all might confess that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father.

Liturgical & Sacramental

And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching
and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
Acts 2:42

What does this mean?

Our congregation is formed by the Triune God in Holy Baptism and the preaching of His Word. We gather around Scripture and the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, singing and praying the certain words that God has given us. Through the Church, Jesus draws all people to Himself, forgiving their sins by His death on the cross and sanctifying them for a life of love for God and service to their neighbours. The way we pray and what we pray in the Services of God’s House are drawn from the Word of God and are focused and centred on the forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ alone.

For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing;
it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Ephesians 2:8-9

What does this mean?

Although the name was originally used as a slur by those who opposed the conservative reformation of the Church by Martin Luther, the title ‘Lutheran’ is a handy way to summarize, distinguish, and explain what it is that we believe, teach, and confess as Christians who desire to be and remain faithful to the word of God. This is what it means to be Lutheran, that we cling to our Lord Jesus Christ, His clear word and teaching, and that handed to us through the prophets and apostles (Jude 3).  If you would like to learn more, we would love to hear from you.

What did Luther think of his name being used?

In 1522 Luther wrote:

In the first place, I ask that men make no reference to my name; let them call themselves Christians, not Lutherans. What is Luther? After all, the teaching is not mine [John 7:16]. Neither was I crucified for anyone [1 Cor. 1:13]. St. Paul, in 1 Corinthians 3,  would not allow the Christians to call themselves Pauline or Petrine, but Christian. How then should I—poor stinking maggot-fodder that I am—come to have men call the children of Christ by my wretched name? Not so, my dear friends; let us abolish all party names and call ourselves Christians, after him whose teaching we hold. The papists deservedly have a party name, because they are not content with the teaching and name of Christ, but want to be papist as well. Let them be papist then, since the pope is their master. I neither am nor want to be anyone’s master. I hold, together with the universal church, the one universal teaching of Christ, who is our only master [Matt. 23:8]. (LW 45:70-71)

Thus, to be “Lutheran” is to be Christian.

We Gather Every Sunday

Plan Your Visit

We would love to welcome you on Sunday morning. If you are thinking of visiting, please reach out and drop us a message. We would be happy to answer any questions you might have in advance of your visit.

Christian Education

With the exception of the summer months, this is offered most every Sunday before the Divine Service. We gather in the Sanctuary for a joint family opening before splitting into more age specific groups to explore the Bible lesson.

Divine Service

Every Sunday is a mini-Easter where Christ comes to us to forgive our sins and strengthen our faith as He has promised to do. He is revealed through the proper proclamation of His word and the administration of His Holy Sacraments.
