The purpose of English Lutheran Church, as a gathering of Christians, is to serve all people in God’s World with the gospel of Jesus Christ on the basis of the Holy Scriptures (Matthew 28:18-20; Mark 16:15).
The primary objective of this congregation is to proclaim the law and the gospel in our congregation, community, and the world so that through the means of grace the Holy Spirit might:
- Lead sinners to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ for life and salvation (Luke 24:46-48).
- Strengthen believers in faith and sanctification (Romans 10:17).
- Equip believers as disciples, stewards, witnesses, and servant to share the gospel of Jesus and live their faith (Ephesians 4:11,12; Matthew 5:16).
What We Believe and Teach
English Lutheran Church believes and teaches the following:
That the Bible is God's Word, verbally inspired, without error, and the Source of absolute truth.
That Jesus Christ, crucified and raised from death, is the Son of God and, therefore, true God with the Father and the Holy Spirit.
That we all are sinners deserving eternal death, and left to ourselves, can do nothing to contribute to our salvation.
That Jesus, by His perfect life and death, forgave the sins for all people, and now through the Gospel in the Word and the Sacraments creates faith in our hearts and offers heaven to all as a free gift from God.
That hearts responding to God's goodness produce lives of thankfulness, service and obedience to God and His Word.
