What We Believe
We welcome you through peace in Jesus, no matter who you are or where you come from. We believe that Jesus Christ is the true Savior of all people. By his perfect life, innocent death, and triumphant resurrection he saves all lost sinners without our help.

Jesus Christ makes us special people, right with God and ready for life. We learn this from the Bible, God's perfect message of peace and guidance for us.

Whether you are a seasoned Lutheran, a curious observer with little religious background, or a spiritual person looking to return to the church, we invite you to explore our beliefs further. If you are looking for more information about our beliefs, the best way for us to help you is personal interaction between you and our pastor. E-mail him with your questions, or plan to attend one of our Bible Information Class series that begin throughout the year. These classes are designed for non-members to explore, without obligation, what we believe as found in the Bible.

God's lessons for life - here and hereafter - are not just dry and dusty truths to be shelved in a library somewhere. They make a difference!

Peace in Jesus!
