What We Believe!
Immanuel Lutheran Church
is a congregation of The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod
Our mission statement is:
Faithful to God’s Word – we receive, celebrate, and share Jesus Christ.
Faithful to God's Word
We believe that the Holy Scriptures are God's infallible Word which reveals Jesus Christ, who is the only Savior for all people. Every teaching, belief, and practice of Immanuel congregation must be grounded in this perfect Word and faithful to His revealed will.
We receive...Jesus Christ
We are always on the receiving end of God's goodness and grace. Since all people are born in sin and would be lost forever unless redeemed by God in Jesus Christ we could never give anything to God in order to earn His favor or the promise of His heaven. God loved the world so much that He gave His Son to die for us. He gave...we received.
Every Sunday God gives us His gifts of Word and Sacrament in the Divine Service. We receive God's unmerited love and forgiveness in Jesus Christ in the sure and certain promise of eternal life.
We celebrate...Jesus Christ
God's goodness and mercy leads us to give Him thanks and praise. We celebrate God's goodness in corporate worship and in lives of service to God and our neighbors.
We share...Jesus Christ
The good news of God's love in Christ is too good to keep to ourselves. What God has done must be shared through our personal witness and by the support of mission work throughout the world
