We Believe

King of Glory Lutheran Church is a member member congregation of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod.  Lutherans derive their name from the 16th century reformer, Martian Luther, whose biblical teachings inspired the historical event known as the Reformation.   The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.

Grace alone.  God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly. With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God’s Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.

Faith alone.  By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.

Scripture alone.  The Bible is God’s inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.

Who is Jesus?

For more than 2,000 years people have asked the question, “Who is Jesus?”. We were not present when Jesus lived on this earth, but in the Bible we have the record of his birth, life, death on the cross, and resurrection. Study of the Bible, God’s Word, will enable you to seek out the answer to this age-old question.

No one else has influenced history as He has.

Jesus is the Son of God. Old Testament prophets spoke of His coming and described the eternal and life-changing impact He would have.

Jesus is both God and man. He stilled the seas and walked on water. With a touch of His hand, he cured incurable diseases. He restored life to those who had physically died.

Jesus personifies love. He paid the ultimate price so that we could live with Him forever. He sees us through the eyes of love.

He loves us in spite of every hurtful thought, every harmful word, and every wrongful action. These are all a result of sin, which contaminates everything we do. It is behind every broken home, every empty life, every infirmity, every damaged emotion, every sorrow and grief. And as the Bible says, the end result of sin is death. But Jesus Himself was sinless; only He could pay the penalty for our sins.

Our Core Values

Worship – We value worship as being vital to the life of the Christian. We will gather together each week to listen to God speaking to us through His Word and raising our voices in praise to Him.

Prayer – We will continually seek God’s guidance and blessing upon our lives and all of our service to Him through prayer.

Unity – We are committed to unity, love and forgiveness among believers. We will obey the command of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, to love one another.

Maturity – We will pursue the maturing of our faith through regular participation in Christian worship, Christian education and in small group Bible studies.

Family – We will support the family to strengthen marriages and family bonds. We are committed to strong youth and children’s programs.

Service – We believe that each member has the responsibility to discover his or her talents and to apply those talents effectively to the mission of Christ’s church here at King of Glory and throughout the world

Outreach – We believe that God wants all to be saved and that He has commanded us to carry the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the entire world. We are committed to carrying this message to the un-churched in our community and to support the efforts of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod to proclaim the Gospel to all nations.
