Welcome to Our Savior Lutheran Church.
This church belongs to our Savior, who paid for it with His blood, and who has commanded us, His people to: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all people, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded.”
We recommit ourselves to this task, trusting in our Savior to work through us as He promised, “Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world.” Matthew 28:19-20

The Lutheran Reformation is still all about Jesus; that is, faithfully preaching and teaching the good news of Jesus Christ and standing for the teachings of God’s Word as they have been confessed in all times and all places wherever the Gospel is purely taught according to a pure understanding of it and where the Sacraments are administered according to Christ’s institution.
With Martin Luther, we still say, “Here we stand, we can not do otherwise. God help us. Amen.”
