Who we are
We are Lutherans, Missouri Synod Lutherans, to be precise. If you don't know what that means, let me try to give you a bit of insight.
You may have heard the joke
"How many Lutherans does it take to change a lightbulb?"
“CHANGE! What'd ya mean, change?”
There actually is something to that, because we hold on to the unchanging Word of God (the Bible) as the sole authority for what we believe and how we live. That kind of keeps a lid on the occasional flights of fancy or the temptation to think we just figured out sometime brand new about God. But we also have a pretty good track record for discerning the difference between what's covered by the Bible and what isn't. So, we don't all live in the same little box; or to put it another way, if you think you know everything about Lutherans because you've been to one church, you're wrong.
Here at Our Savior, we tend toward a pretty formal style of worship, steeped in the rich traditions of the church. There are reasons for that – we think very good reasons for that, and we would love to explain them to you. But whatever form the worship takes, the reason we are here is because God has drawn us to Himself, drawn us to Himself because He loves us (yes, I'm including you here) and wants us to be with Him. He has enabled that through the life, death and resurrected life of His only son Jesus Christ. So, we are here, in the words of the Bible, “determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.” Everything else flows from that.
Come and see. It will be worth it.
