WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe in the Triune God, the one God who exists in three eternal Persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that God the Son (Jesus) became a man, died for our sins and rose from the dead, and through Him alone one can receive the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. We believe that faith in Christ is necessary for salvation and those without Christ will not be saved. We believe we are saved by the unmerited grace of God and not by our good deeds. We believe that good deeds are the evidence of our faith.
Our 8:30am Sunday service is a traditional service with pipe organ music and hymns.  This service generally lasts about 50 to 55 minutes.  Communion is generally served each Sunday.
 
During September through May, Sunday School, Youth Study, Adult Studies meet at 9:15/9:30am – check calendar for confirmation of times.
 Our 10:30am Sunday Service is contemporary with a worship team of singers/musicians and contemporary music.  This service lasts about 60 to 75 minutes.  Communion is generally served the first Sunday of the month.
 
Beginning in September 2022, the plan is to have the nursery back up and running during the 10:30am service.
The Association of Free Lutheran Churches (AFLC)
The AFLC is a fellowship of independent congregations, who have chosen to be interdependent for the purpose of accomplishing service in the Kingdom of God that cannot best be done alone. The Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (AFLC) was organized in 1962 by 40-50 congregations of the former Lutheran Free Church (LFC) and has grown to become the fourth largest Lutheran church body in the United States with over 270 member congregations.  www.AFLC.org
