Here at St. Peter we are overwhelmed by the story of God. This story that we celebrate is one of our sin and God's grace, our betrayal and God's faithfulness. Despite our sin and selfishness God sent his son Jesus Christ to die on our behalf, using his blood as payment for our rebellion. This story of forgiveness and renewal still continues today through the Church. We rejoice in what God has done through Jesus and we look forward to the day when Christ will return in glory to make all things new. Until then we wait, pray, worship, and serve our neighbor as Christ commanded.
What is Lutheran?
Our congregation accepts and preaches the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture 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.
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.
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.
