As we enter into the season of Lent we will consider the events that founded our faith. Here are some indisputable facts surrounding the advent of our faith.

The Gospel

| February 9, 2020

We as Lutheran Christians rightly understand that a person is born sinful. This is something that the Scriptures clearly teach, Ps 51:5, Romans 5:12, Eph 4:22 just to cite a few.

| December 17, 2019

We have started a new year in the Church. If we were to be guided by scripture in making resolutions, one might be for the start of this new Church year, too, “Stay Awake.” In Matthew 24 Jesus pleaded with His Church to Stay Awake! “42 Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on […]

The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit

| May 17, 2019

Before you start reading this, open up your Bible and read John chapter 5. John 5 is an absolutely critical text for understanding the interrelationship between the Father and the Son.
