We stand in the Lutheran tradition of the church, which means we believe God’s love is unconditional. What that means in practice is that everyone is welcome in this place. Everyone. Jesus didn’t set any conditions so neither do we.
Another things Lutherans say is that no one has their lives all sorted out and tidy. Our relationships with others, self, and God — these things are all a work in progress. We come back Sunday by Sunday to work on these things together, believing that we are better off together.
Our beliefs are traditionally summarized in documents like the Apostles’ Creed and the Augsburg Confession, but at the root of these things is really plain trust in the promise that God is merciful and compassionate and holds the world in love.
We believe that practices like compassion for self, love of the neighbour, and working in ways small and large to make the world a better place are the things that are most important to God.
We hope you’ll join us in the journey!
The Lutheran Church has its roots in the Protestant Reformation, in which Martin Luther was a seminal figure. One of his many contributions was his translation of the Bible into the language of the common people. Learn more (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Luther)
