What We Believe

Grace is more than just the name of our church and school. Grace is the love and forgiveness that God has for us, even though we do not deserve it. God sent His Son to suffer, die and rise again for us, so that we might receive the gift of salvation, and the opportunity to live with Him forever in heaven. As a response to that gift which God has given us, we reach out to one another and to our community with the Word of God that tells us of forgiveness and new life. That message lies at the heart of our mission and ministry here at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church.

What Does "Lutheran" Mean?

Our congregation is a member of The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod accepts the Scriptures as the inspired and inerrant Word of God. As a Lutheran congregation, Grace Lutheran Church accepts and teaches Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther can be summarized in three short phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.

GRACE ALONE

The Biblical teaching that there is no other way to gain heaven except by the love God has for us, enough love that He sent His son Jesus to die in our stead.

Faith Alone

The Biblical teaching that a human being is justified (set free of all sin) by the atoning work of Jesus Christ. We are saved solely by faith, without the deeds of the Law.

Scripture Alone

The Biblical teaching that there is no other source for our understanding of God's grace and love except in the Bible, God's Word.
