Our Vision

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.

Our belief can be summarized in three 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.

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.

The Lord’s Supper

We believe, teach, and confess that in this Sacrament our Lord gives into our mouths not only bread and wine, but His very body and blood to eat and to drink for the forgiveness of sins, and to strengthen our union with Him and with one another.

Our Lord invites to His table those believers who trust His words, repent of all sin, and set aside any refusal to forgive and love others as He forgives and loves us.

Because those who eat and drink our Lord’s body and blood unworthily do so to their great harm, and because Holy Communion is a confession of the faith, any who are not yet instructed, in doubt, or who believe something different to what the Bible teaches on this Sacrament, and yet desire to receive it, are asked first to speak with the pastor or an elder.

Baptism

In Matthew, chapter 28, we have a beautiful mandate from our Lord:

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.  And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

In and through Baptism, God cleanses us from all of our sins, snatches us from the power of Satan, and gives us everlasting life. It is all God’s doing as He gives us His blessing. It is His promise. In Baptism, our Triune God personally imparts to each of us the gifts the Lord Jesus Christ won for the world through His life, suffering, death, and resurrection. Please see especially Gal. 3:27; Col. 1:13–14; 1 Peter 3:21; Titus 3:5–7 and 1 Cor. 6:11.

Do you want to be baptized? Is there someone in your family who is not yet baptized?

Marriage

The Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) has affirmed, on the basis of Scripture, that marriage is the lifelong union of one man and one woman. As a member of the LCMS, our GRACE COMMUNITY conducts weddings that join one man and one woman who intend to be joined for their mutual lifetime. (Genesis 2:2-4; Matthew 19:5-6)

Step by Step

  • Call our Church Office and set an appointment with our Pastor.
  • During the initial conversation, couples will receive all of the information about getting married at GRACE, and will plan a second meeting with Pastor in order to talk about marriage.
  • One more meeting is required to discuss all of the details of the wedding ceremony.
  • Prior to the ceremony, our GRACE COMMUNITY requires at least one visit to one of our Worship Services.

We pray that you ask Jesus to be the center of your lives together. On behalf of all of us at GRACE, thank you again for your consideration and may God bless you on this beautiful journey.

Funerals

We understand how difficult it is to lose a loved one. You are not alone on this journey; we are here to walk with you. We will work closely with you and your family throughout your planning to honor your loved one’s life on Earth as well as their eternal life in Heaven.

“But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep.” (1 Thess. 4:13–14 ESV)

If you need more information about funerals at GRACE, please call us at 414-384-3520.
