Our Beliefs

Lord of Life Lutheran is a Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) congregation.
The congregation is pastored by Rev. Mark Below 

Belief and Practice
With the universal Christian Church, Lord of Life, as a LCMS congregation, teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father; creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God. 

What is "Lutheran"?
Lutheran congregations accept and preach the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teachings of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.

SOLA GRATIA
Grace Alone God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful,rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.

SOLA FIDE
Faith Alone By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people for all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear the Good News this good news and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.

SOLA SCRIPTURA
Word Alone The Bibles God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm of Christian doctrine.
