Messiah's Mission Statement:

“To share the good news of Jesus Christ and to invite all to join us in faith, worship, and service.”

What We Believe

In 1517 Martin Luther posted the 95 Theses on the door of the church in Wittenberg, Germany calling for the reform of errors in the medieval church in light of scripture. This act unintentionally began the Reformation, and modern Protestantism was born. Lutherans believe that scripture reveals that a person is saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, not one’s owns actions. Lutherans acknowledge Jesus as Lord and Savior and the Bible as God's revealed truth. Holy Baptism and Holy Communion (the Lord's Supper) are the two sacraments - sacred acts of Christ and means of grace - that Lutherans celebrate. Lutherans are a family of faith within the wider Christian body. We gather to preach, teach and baptize. We go forth into the world to spread the Good News of God's love and to serve others.
