What We Believe


The stained glass windows above our altar provide all who join us in the Divine Service with a beautiful, visual summary of what we believe, teach and confess in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.

In the middle of three windows are the symbols for each person of the One, Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. On each of the windows to the left and the right there is a common theme. Beginning at the bottom you will find symbols for those things that every human needs to be saved from: on the left, is a thistle (symbolizing suffering and death) and on the right a snake (sin and the devil). Above each of these evils is a sacrament: baptism and the Lord's Supper. These are the means by which God's saves sinners by connecting them to the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Through these means of grace we are not only saved from evil we are also given the kingdom of heaven and eternal life. These are symbolized by the open doors and the lily.

Obviously there is much more to know about what we believe. If you would like to know more please contact our Pastor. We also invite you to join us in one of our many Bible Classes, especially our Foundation Classes. You might also check out the following website: http://www.lcms.org
