Grace Alone

We believe that as sinners we will never be “good enough” to earn God’s favor. Yet God offers us salvation through the death and resurrection of Jesus. 

Ephesians 2:8-9

Faith Alone

God offers eternal life to all who believe in Jesus as their Lord and Savior. We trust that in Jesus our sins are forgiven, and that the Holy Spirit will help us to live a godly life. 

Scripture Alone

We look to the Bible as the sole authority for determining what we believe and how we live as Christians. 

2 Timothy 3:14-17

The Lord's Supper / Communion

Holy Communion is a special gift to us from God, who forgives the sins of the repentant. We believe that Jesus’ true body and blood are present in the bread and wine. If you believe that Jesus is your Lord and Savior we invite you to come up for communion. (Normally 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month).

Marriage Policy

The marriage policy of Hope Lutheran Church, a member congregation of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, is and always has been consistent with the Synod’s beliefs on marriage.  We believe that marriage is a sacred union of one man and one woman (Genesis 2:24-25).  The official position of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, as set forth in 1998 Res. 3-21 (“To Affirm the Sanctity of Marriage and to Reject Same-Sex Unions”), is that homosexual unions come under categorical prohibition in the Old and New Testaments (Leviticus 18:22, 24; 20:13; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10) as contrary to the Creator’s design (Romans 1:26-27).  These positions and beliefs can be found on the LCMS website, along with other statements, papers and reports on the subject of homosexual and same-sex civil unions and “marriage.”  Our pastors will not officiate over any marriages inconsistent with these beliefs, and our church property may not be used for any marriage ceremony, reception or other activity that would be inconsistent with our beliefs and this policy.
