Divine Service

Why does our Lord gather us for worship? The most precious gifts and treasures our Lord gives us are His forgiveness, life, and salvation. Through His innocent life and bitter sufferings and death, Christ has purchased and won us from sin, death and the devil. Through Jesus Christ, all the sins of the world were … Continue reading Divine Service

Children and the Liturgy

Dear Parents,In the liturgy of the Divine Service we tell and retell in ritual and song the story of salvation. We establish our identity as part of God’s family, finding our place in the long history of God’s people of which we and our children have become a part through Baptism. To gather for this … Continue reading Children and the Liturgy

Holy Baptism

We’re glad to hear you desire Holy Baptism! Before considering Holy Baptism in practice, first hear the Word of God. The Scriptures teach that a person is saved by God’s grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ alone. They also tell us that such “faith comes by hearing” (Rom 10:17). Jesus Himself commands Baptism and … Continue reading Holy Baptism

The Lutheran Confession

How can I find out more about what Lutherans believe? The Lutheran Church is a confessional movement, meaning that to be Lutheran is to agree with certain clear, written statements about what God teaches about himself and about us and about our relation to him in the holy Scriptures. The Lutheran Confessions do not stand above … Continue reading The Lutheran Confession

Interactive Nicene Creed

The Nicene Creed is a Christian statement of faith accepted by the Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, and most Protestant churches. It gets its name from the First Council of Nicaea (325 A.D.), where it was initially adopted, and from the First Council of Constantinople (381 A.D.), where a revised version was accepted. Thus it may be referred to specifically as the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed to distinguish it from … Continue reading Interactive Nicene Creed

Hymns to Know

One distinctive that marks the Lutheran confession from all others is the love of congregational singing. We owe this to Martin Luther and his friends. Luther himself recognized the role of music in the life of the church, composing hymn texts and tunes that we still use today. Luther wrote: “Indeed I plainly judge, and … Continue reading Hymns to Know
