What We Believe

As Lutherans, we believe in God’s gracious gift of salvation as it is offered to us through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Each time we gather together for worship God comes to us in his Word and Sacraments. Through his Word God loves, comforts, challenges, teaches, and empowers us for life as his people in the world. In the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion he gives us concrete experiences of the forgiveness and hope that is ours through faith in Jesus Christ.

At the heart of our congregation’s life is worship. That is how most people first experience us, and that is how we grow into a community of faith, week by week. We begin with the experience of God’s undeserved, indiscriminate, abundant love for each one of us. But we don’t end there. Worship strengthens us for a life of service to God and to our neighbors, and we are called by God to care for one another,  So, the people of Church of the Resurrection gather to learn about God’s powerful Word, to grow together in God’s grace, and to spread the good news about Jesus Christ as we reach out with his love and presence wherever we go and whatever we do.

We believe that our faith is strengthened as we participate in worship and learning and service in the congregation. We also believe that as your faith is strengthened you will share with us a powerful sense of hope and peace and joy: gifts from God that can deepen and enrich your life. For the message that comes to us from God in this Christian community is that God loves you and cares about you!
