Faith Lutheran Church welcomes you! Our congregation is a confessional Lutheran congregation offering God's gift of salvation in Jesus Christ through the faithful preaching of God's Word and administration of His sacraments. We celebrate the Lord's Supper every Sunday in a traditional Lutheran Divine Service.

Our Beliefs

The Lord's Supper

We are a congregation of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod and adhere to its beliefs. Briefly, we believe that the Bible is the true and complete Word of God, and it is the source of our doctrine, faith, and teachings. We also believe that the teachings in the Book of Concord are true and faithful representations of the doctrines taught to us by God Himself in His Word.

This Word of God states that God created us perfect, along with the heavens and the earth. However, the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, disobeyed God's command and so lost God's perfection. Since then all men are sinful from conception and so deserve only God's punishment, here and in eternity. We are not capable of keeping God's laws and pleasing Him on our own.

However, in God's great love he sent His Son, Jesus, into the world to become a man and to take the punishment we deserved for our sins. Jesus did this through His sufferings and death on the cross, completely paying the price we owe God for our continued breaking of His laws. God raised Jesus from the dead, showing that He accepted His sacrifice as payment for our sins. Thanks to Jesus, we are no longer enemies of God and can look forward to eternal life with Him in heaven, simply by trusting in Him. And He evens sends His Holy Spirit to work that trust and faith in us. "Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!" — 1 Corinthians 9:15

For more details about what we believe, please see the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod website.

"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace
through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus. — Romans 3:23-24


"For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have everlasting life." — John 3:16

"But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another,
