God is one, yet three persons. He has three attributes and three ways of being with His creation: as Eternal Father, as Son & Savior (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit.
We believe God our Father created all things, and that nothing we see or experience is an accident. He is the Creator of our universe, and the maker of each and every person. We believe He had you in mind before he ever laid the foundations of the universe. He is our Father and a loving and merciful God who wants you to be with Him for all eternity.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten son. He was not created like you and me, but has always been, one with the Father and the Holy Spirit. He is the Word of God, and through his voice, all things that have ever been were made. He gave up his position and divinity in heaven and came to earth as a human being. Jesus lived among us. He ate, drank, slept, wept and laughed. He experienced joy and also sorrow. For us and our salvation, He suffered death on the cross, and in doing so took onto himself all our sins and wrongdoing so we may be forgiven once and for all time. We believe Jesus rose from the dead three days later, and through His resurrection, all who believe in Him will rise to new life and live eternally with God in Heaven.
The Holy Spirit is one with the Father and the Son. He breathed all living things into existence, and in him we move and have our being. He lives within all who confess and believe that Jesus Christ is Lord, speaking to us and guiding us in life. He is the Gift Jesus promised before he ascended into heaven, and is the giver of gifts to the church so we may be the embodiment of Jesus, so that the world may know God’s love.
We believe the Christian Bible, both the Old and New Testaments in their original writings, is the inspired Word of God, given to us so that we may learn how to love God, love another, and grow in our faith.
You are one of a kind! There’s never been, nor will the ever be, anyone just like you. The Bible says that God knew you before he even the universe, and that makes you pretty special. We value that at Peace Lutheran and value how God created you in his image.
Jesus started the church by creating a community of people who believe he is our Savior. We choose to gather often to worship God, to learn together, and to make Jesus known by serving in our communities.
Jesus said to go into the whole world and make him known. We’re on a mission to make heaven more crowded by making Jesus known, and we want you in heaven too. Are you interested in that too? If so, we’re your kind of people.
Oh goodness, overall I think I’m just a total Jesus freak and NERD who tries not to take himself too seriously.
