Our congregations accept and preach 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 phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.
With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod teaches and responds 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. - Source LCMS Website
All over the world, Lutherans gather to worship. But what makes Lutheran worship different?
Lutheran worship is a continual conversation between God and the believer, in which we focus on Jesus, who is present with and for us through His Word and Sacrament. Through the hymns, liturgy, and prayers in the Divine Service, we receive the precious gifts our Lord desires to give us: the forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation.
Worship expands on the topic from Lutheranism 101, presenting background information on the development of Lutheran worship, a deeper look at the parts of the worship service, and an understanding of why Lutheran worship is both consistent with the way Christians have worshiped over the centuries as well as a unique expression of Lutheran theology. - Source LCMS Website
