Lutheran Spirituality

"Luther's faith was simple enough to trust that after a hard day at work, a Christian father could come home and eat his sausage, drink his beer, play his flute, sing with his children, and make love to his wife--all to the glory of God."  (From "Luther on the Christian Home:  An Application of the Social Ethics of the Reformation" by William Lazareth.)

"If the great, sublime article called the forgiveness of sins is correctly understood, it makes one a Christian and gives one eternal life.  This is the reason why it must be taught with unflagging diligence and without ceasing, so that people may learn to understand it plainly, clearly, and discriminatingly.  For to do so is the one, supreme, and most difficult task of Christians.  As long as we live here below, we shall have enough to do to learn this article.  No one need look for anything new, anything higher and better."  (Martin Luther)

Lutherans Treasure

The Father, Son & Holy Spirit:  We love God because He first loved us.  We worship the Triune God.         

Worship:  Worship isn’t primarily what we do for God. Instead, it is what He does for us.  Almost all of the words used in our liturgy are taken from the Bible.  In our Divine Services God speaks to us and we speak God’s word back to Him.

Baptism:  Baptism isn’t so much what we do for God; rather, it is God’s gift to us.  Baptism isn’t so much a pledge of our commitment to Christ; rather, in baptism God connects us to Jesus Christ and to His death and resurrection.

Holy Confession and Absolution:  At almost every one of our services we kneel down to confess our sins.  We then rise to receive a full pardon from Christ Himself.

The Lord’s Supper:  At each of our worship service we celebrate the Sacrament of the Altar.  We believe and trust that in this meal we receive the true body and blood of Christ for the forgiveness of our sins and the strengthening of our faith.

The Bible:  We believe that the Bible is the Word of God written so that we would believe in Jesus Christ, our Savior.  We believe that the Bible is the Word of God based on the testimony of Christ Himself and His apostles.
