What is a Lutheran?
A Lutheran is someone who believes...

“God’s Good News for You” is the center of our faith.

God’s grace is freely given. We do not need to prove anything to be loved.

EVERYONE is made in God’s image, worthy of life and love.

We all fail, but God forgives. It is safe to let God see our flaws and brokenness.

Jesus Christ renews our hearts and shapes us into compassionate people.

We are called to care for and serve neighbors in need.

Jesus shows up in this world – in worship, in strangers, in the person who gives and receives love.
