“Peace be within you.” Because of the house of the Lord our God I will seek your good. Ps. 122:8

What We Believe

Peace Lutheran Church is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and that the one and only true God is the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We subscribe to the Lutheran Confessions, and believe that all people are sinners, but through faith in Jesus Christ alone we receive forgiveness, salvation and everlasting life.


  • There is only one God, the God who reveals Himself in the Holy Bible. He is the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
  • God created the world in six days, speaking it into existence by His word
  • Humans did not descend from any other creature, but from Adam and Eve, the first man and woman, originally made perfect by God
  • Adam and Eve sinned when the devil tempted them, ruining God’s perfect creation, and plunging mankind into sinfulness and death
  • We all inherit this sinful condition at conception; we sin every day; and therefore deserve no good thing from God
  • Jesus Christ, true God and true Man, is the only Savior from sin and death
  • Jesus paid for all sin by His suffering and death, and rose from the dead, conquering death for all
  • We are forgiven by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone, not by anything good that we feel, think, desire or do
  • God brings us this forgiveness through His word, and through the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
  • Heaven and eternal life await all those who believe and trust in this free and full forgiveness which came at the expense of Jesus’ perfect life
  • The Holy Bible, is the inspired, inerrant, infallible word of God, and the only norm, rule, and source of faith and life


  • To remain humble children of the heavenly Father through faith in Jesus
  • To steadfastly abide in Jesus and His truth, revealed in the Holy Bible, and faithfully explained and confessed in the Lutheran Book of Concord
  • To walk with and serve our Lord, thanking Him for His great love for us
  • To proclaim His truth to everybody, especially the good news of what Jesus has done to save us
