All Are Welcome
YOU ARE INVITED TO COMMUNE WITH US. When we celebrate Holy Communion, guests and members alike need to know that all are welcome at our Lord's table! We believe Jesus Christ is present in the bread and wine. His body and blood are given for the forgiveness of sins. The Lord invites you and the decision to receive Holy Communion is yours.
At Church of Our Saviour, worship is the central practice of our Christian lives of faith. Our Lutheran heritage means we use a liturgical pattern of worship that dates back to the earliest days of the Christian church. Through God’s Word, water, communion, and prayer, we are nurtured in faith and sent out into the world to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
What We Believe
We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father; through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven, was incarnate of the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary and became truly human. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
