What we believe
We gather, receive God's gifts, and are changed. Jesus Christ came to restore every one of us by dying on our behalf on a cross, that all who believe walk forgiven before our Heavenly Father.....We are being transformed every day to live and love more like Christ. The standard is high, the journey is tough, the expectations are baffling to most of society. Sharing a message of eternal life for others, even to the point of death? That was Jesus purpose; that is our calling. We all will fall short daily, but we look to the day when He restores us and all His creation to the way he created it in the beginning. You are welcome here, as you are. But be patient, Christ is not finished with us, and he won't be until we see his flesh, bone, and spirit welcome us into eternal life. We hope we get to walk this journey with you.
The people of St Peters Lutheran Church is a member of the body of Christ, and values the unity we practice by subscribing to a faithful confession binding the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS) in brotherhood. We uphold and believe as our brothers and sisters who confess the teachings in the bible as described in the Unaltered Augsburg Confession of 1530. For further information, refer to the LCMS website.
We believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried; He descended into hell. On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven,he is seated at the right hand of the Father, and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
Jesus' teachings as passed down through his Church for 2000 years
"This is my body ... this is my blood." Gifts through which we are forgiven, strengthened, and refreshed.
"Baptism now saves you" means baptism is not a personal commitment, but a change God makes in us by his Holy Spirit. This, of course, requires continued faith, "Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned".
Jesus is returning to restore all Creation
Is Jesus taking us up to heaven forever? Even better! Christ Jesus will return in glory to judge the living and the dead...and stay. Those who are declared righteous by faith in Christ will remain to live with him in his restored creation, like Adam and Eve, as first described in Genesis 1.
