Welcome to Faith Lutheran Church

A warm welcome to you and to everyone!  We are a Christ-centered, family oriented, Bible-based congregation committed to sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. 

If you are new to the area, serving in our military, and/or are looking for a church home, we invite you to join our family here at Faith Lutheran Church. 

What about the Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod?
  • The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LC-MS) is a family of 2.6 million Christians, gathered in more than 6,000 congregations throughout the United States.  Our church body was founded more than 150 years ago by  a small band of immigrants in America who were dedicated to preaching and teaching the Gospel of the forgiveness of sins through Christ alone.  Many of the founders of our Synod were from Missouri, hence the word "Missouri" in our church's name.
  • Our congregations are united in an association of Christian fellowship called a "Synod," which means "walking together."  Every congregation is self governed and unique.  We believe and teach the same Biblical truths, but our congregations also reflect the diversity of the people we serve.  Some are located in rural areas, others in inner cities.  Some are large, others are very small.  We are a family gathered from all nations, united in the wonderful truth that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world.
  • Martin Luther, the great Christian Reformer of the 16th century, boldly proclaimed the Bible's most important message: that Christ came into the world to save sinners, and lived among us to defeat our enemies--sin, death and the devil.  Luther believed and taught that Jesus' sacrificial death on the cross washed away the sins of the whole world, and that those who place their trust in Him are forgiven.  They are declared righteous and are reconciled to God.
  • What Luther began in 1517 reached its culmination in 1580, when the official statements of Lutheran belief (the Lutheran Confessions) were gathered together in what is known as the Book of Concord.  We place great value in retaining and advancing the cause of the Lutheran Reformation.  We see in the Reformation movement the hand of God working to preserve the truth of His Word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Therefore, we are committed to genuine, historical Lutheranism.
    We Believe...
  • God is the triune God of the Bible--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  He is our Creator, Redeemer and Sanctifier.
  • The Bible is the Word of God.  It not only contains the Word of God, but actually is God's Word and is the only source of revealed truth concerning Christ, faith, and salvation, by which the church is governed.
  • Faith in Jesus Christ is the gift of God to man through which man is declared righteous before God who forgives all man's sins.
  • Man, though created holy and innocent, by his own choice fell into sin, thus separating himself from God.
  • Sin is every offense of God's law and leads man to death and eternal damnation unless he is redeemed.
  • Redemption is the act of God revealed in the Bible and proclaimed by the Church whereby Jesus Christ, the Son of God, born of the Virgin Mary, died for the sins of the world and rose again from the dead to secure our redemption.

    Witness, Mercy, Life Together.
    These phrases illustrate how the church lives and works together to proclaim the Gospel and to provide for our brothers and sisters in Christ in our congregations, communities and throughout the world.   And in all we do, Christ is at the center, leading us, sustaining us, keeping us focused on our mission.  This will never change.
