We believe that God has called us to encourage people who hunger physically, emotionally, mentally and, most importantly, spiritually to seek nourishment from God.

We believe that we cannot force anyone to come to God through Jesus Christ, but that we can offer his grace and mercy both in what we say and how we act.

We value SHARING CHRIST with others.

We value STUDYING GOD’S WORD (the Bible) with others.

We value SHOWING COMPASSION to others.

We value SERVING OTHERS.

Our Strategy

We encourage those who hunger to be nourished by God in WORSHIP.

We encourage those who hunger to be nourished by God through GROWING in grace as we dig into God’s Word.

Lutheran Church Missouri Synod

1.) The Bible is the inspired and inerrant (without error) Word of God. It is His message to all people. The entire Bible points to Jesus as the Savior.

2.) There is only one true God. He has revealed Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

3.) God is the creator and owner of everything that exists.

4.) People were originally created by God pure and holy, without sin. They lived according to God’s will, doing what was pleasing to Him.

5.) Adam and Eve, the man and woman God created in the beginning, went against God’s will and brought sin into the world. Since that time, all people have been conceived and born in sin.

6.) Sin is living out of relationship with God, not living according to God’s will, and thus transgressing His holy will in thought, word and deed.

7.) People cannot save themselves by their good works or restore themselves to a right relationship with God.

8.) God sent His Son, Jesus, into the world. He is both true God and true man. He lived to fulfill God’s law for us, died on the cross to pay the penalty our sins deserved, and rose from the dead so that we might have eternal life. He ascended into heaven, where He now sits at the right hand of the Father to intercede for us.

9.) Because of Jesus’ death on the cross, God declares a person just—or righteous—and forgiven. This happens not because of human effort, but because the justification won by Jesus applied to the one who believes in Jesus as Savior.

10.) Faith in Jesus is a gift of God, given by the power of the Holy Spirit, thus all the glory belongs to God.

11.) The means of grace are the Word, Holy Baptism, and Holy Communion. By these means, God applies the merits of Jesus’ atoning death to all who believe in Jesus as their Savior.

12.) Jesus will come again to take all believers to Himself. On the final day, all the dead will be raised. Those who are still alive will be bodily transformed. After this, the final judgment will take place. Unbelievers will go into eternal damnation, and believers into eternal life.

13.) The true Christian church is made up of all believers of all times who believe in the Triune God and in Jesus Christ as their only Savior.

14.) The true visible church is the church which correctly preaches and teaches God’s Word and administers Holy Baptism and Holy Communion according to the teachings of Scripture.

15.) Christians are called to tell others that the only way of salvation is by faith in Jesus Christ, and to show their faith by their deeds of love toward others.
