What we believe

We are sons and daughters of the Protestant Reformation begun in the 16th century by a German Roman Catholic Priest named Martin Luther, and as Christians of this heritage we believe:

  • Jesus is Lord of Lords and King of Kings
  • The Word of God is Truth
  • We are all sinners and need God's saving Grace (that means you and me too!)
  • Jesus came and died in our place and then rose from the dead to save us from those sins!
  • It's all about Jesus, there is no other Way!
  • We are committed to the concept of the Priesthood of All Believers - we are all ministers to each other.  God has chosen flawed clay vessels to bear His Word to all the world.
  • We celebrate the gifts and talents of all of God's children - God makes no distinction between men and women in giving them these gifts, we make no distinction in encouraging the exercise of them in His service.

 - and all this is done without any help from us!  We confess that we are by our very nature sinful and don't even possess the ability to choose to call upon Jesus for help.  We come to him and lay all our cares at the foot of the Cross because we are called through a Faith that has been freely given to us by the Holy Spirit.

The Word of the Day ... Advent

The word Advent is from the Latin adventus for "coming" and is associated with the four weeks of preparation for Christmas. Advent always contains four Sundays, beginning on the Sunday nearest the feast of St. Andrew the Apostle, (November 30) and continuing until December 24. It blends together a penitential spirit, very similar to Lent, a liturgical theme of preparation for the Second and Final Coming of the Lord, called the Parousia, and a joyful theme of getting ready for the Bethlehem event. Since the 900s Advent has been considered the beginning of the church year.

The color of the Advent season is blue which suggests hope. An older tradition uses purple, the royal color of the coming King. This color is still used in many churches today. In our church you will see blue paraments on the altar, blue candles on the Advent wreath and banners with a background of blue.

We are preparing for the arrival of a tiny little baby - not born in a palace but in a little town called Bethlehem.

How can we make our lives reading for this coming king?
