Martin Luther said that, “Faith is God’s work in us. It changes us and makes us to be born anew of God. This faith is a living, busy, active, mighty thing. It is impossible for it not to be doing good works incessantly. Faith is a living, daring confidence in God’s grace, so sure and certain that believers would stake their lives on it a thousand times”
At Our Savior’s Lutheran Church we believe in a Triune God: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. We talk about what we believe with the words of orthodox Christian statements such as the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. As part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we also act out our faith in what we do. We live and act out our faith through worship, where we confess our need for God’s love and forgiveness, and where we receive Christ and his love in the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion. We live out what we believe about God’s love for this world in ways such as our support of children’s education in our sister congregation, Fe y Esperanza Lutheran Church in El Salvador. You can see what we believe in our cooperation with such organizations as Lutheran Social Services and Lutheran Disaster Response. Our faith is active and busy in the many ways we seek to support each other and our neighbors in times of great need, whether it is by spending time with them in a hospital room, providing meals, or helping them get back on their feet.
