Welcome to Christ Lutheran Church !
Below you will find an overview of who we are and what we believe as Lutheran Christians. If you would like to learn more, please stop by for Sunday morning worship. We look forward to meeting you.

We Are “Lutheran”
Being Lutheran, our congregation accepts and teaches 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, Faith alone, Scripture 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.

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.

Scripture alone
The Holy Bible is God's 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. The Bible was written by men as inspired by the Holy Spirit & is without error. God's Word continues to speak to us today, so we should diligently study, hear and accept it.

What We Believe About…

God:

Lutherans believe that God is triune, one God in three persons, the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit. God created the universe with all its grandeur and beauty.

Jesus Christ:
Lutherans believe that Jesus Christ is the God-given solution to man's spiritual dilemma. He is the true Son of God Who took upon Himself the sins of the whole world when He suffered and died on the cross. God graciously offers forgiveness to all. Forgiveness is received through faith in Jesus Christ.

The Holy Spirit:
Lutherans believe that the Holy Spirit works through the Word & the Sacraments to create & nurture a trusting relationship with Jesus Christ. He quickens man to a new life in which man strives to love & please God and love his neighbor as himself.

Man:
Lutherans believe that man is not an "accident" through evolution, but that God created him in His image for a living relationship with Him. Our first parents rebelled & sinned against God. Now every human being is born with a self-centered nature & a tendency for evil. By himself, man cannot right his fallen nature.

Salvation:
Lutherans believe that a man is made right with God & eternally saved solely by grace for Christ's sake through faith. No good deeds or good works can merit salvation. It is a free gift of God offered through Christ Jesus to all who trust Him for forgiveness.

The Sacraments:
Lutherans believe that Christ instituted two Sacraments, Baptism & the Lord's Supper. Baptism washes away sins & creates faith in the Savior. In the Supper, the Lord's body & blood are given "in, with, & under" the bread wine for the forgiveness of sins & the strengthening of faith.

The Church:
Lutherans believe that the church is the fellowship of all who believe in Christ as their Savior. The church exists to worship God, to sustain faith in Him, and to share the love of God by word & deed. All Christians should worship their Lord & study His Word regularly.

Eternal Life:
Lutherans believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead on Easter morning, and that all who die with faith in Christ will raise on the Last Day to live with God forever.

The Christian Life:
Lutherans believe that receiving Christ as our Savior, we follow His example. We actively show concern for the spiritual and physical condition of each person, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, we strive to minister to the needs of the "whole" person.
