About

Welcome to our website! Our Saviour is a member of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod.

What does this mean? It means several things.

We are a Church that confesses Jesus Christ as the world’s only Saviour from sin, death, and the devil. We know this from the Word of God (the Bible) which is pure and holy. The true teachings of Scripture are thus confessed and explained in our Lutheran Confessions.

We are gathered for worship by our Lord so that we may receive His good gifts of the forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and salvation. So that these are given in an orderly and reverent manner, we use the ancient Liturgy of the holy Christian church. We are not trend-setters nor are we in the entertainment business.

Here, you will meet our Lord Jesus as He gives us His Word and His blessed Sacraments. Here, in the House of God, you will find the rest for your soul that you need. So we say, “Come, and see Jesus.”

Our Saviour Lutheran Church is affiliated with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, a collection of over 6 thousand congregations and 2.6 million members worldwide, united in Christ by belief, faith, and mission.

With the universal Christian Church, we teach and respond 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. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.

As Lutherans, we accept and teach 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 short phrases: Grace alone, Scripture alone, Faith 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.

Scripture Alone
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.

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.
