What We Believe
Loving Others As We Are Loved
Lutherans are followers of Jesus influenced by Martin Luther, a 16th century theologian who had this key insight: We can’t “qualify for” love or blessings through worthiness or conformity. God blesses us just because God loves us. Grounded in this love, we are called to love and serve others—just because!
It Starts with Grace
“Grace” is a church-word that gets thrown around a lot, but here’s what it means in real life: We don’t have to earn belonging.
We don’t have to believe the right things, wear the right clothes, drive the right car, follow the right people on Twitter, have the right politics, or do everything perfectly. Heck, we openly admit that we can and will mess up horribly at times.
Yet God loves us perfectly and unconditionally, not because of anything we do or don’t do, but because that’s Who God is. Period.
We’ve discovered that really trusting this perfect love changes absolutely everything.
Core Beliefs and Practices that Help Us Live from God's Grace
Beliefs and practices are ways of articulating what is most important to us and habits that help us practice what we preach. If you’re not sure what you believe or if you want to participate in these practices, that’s okay! You are welcome with us and your belonging is never on the line. This is here to help you understand what’s behind our preaching, worship, and engagement in our community.
