What We Believe

Our Savior Lutheran Church is a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LC-MS) which 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 (baptism and holy communion).
The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God

Bible-Based Teachings

Our Savior Lutheran Church 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 phrases:

  • Grace Alone (Sola Gratia) - God loves the people of the world, even though we are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.
  • Faith Alone (Sola Fide) - 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.
  • Scripture Alone (Sola Scriptura) - 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.
