We believe in the basic Christian concept that “whoever believes in (Christ) and is baptized (in the name of the Triune God) will be saved.” (Mark 16:16). We welcome all to share with us the teaching of our Lord and Savior, namely that: God loves all people and wants all to be saved. (Timothy 2:4) Man has separated himself from God by sin. (Romans 3:23) Jesus died and rose again for the forgiveness of sins. He is the only way to God and Eternal Life. (John 3:16, John 14:6) The Bible is God’s inspired Word and the only source of our teaching. (2 Timothy 3:16) Our congregation is a member of the Eastern District of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, founded in 1847. Our Synod has about 2.7 million members in 6,000 congregations. As a Synod, we are involved in mission work in over 30 countries around the world.
