About Us 

​Hope Lutheran Church is a traditional Lutheran Church- Missouri Synod congregation, dedicated to bringing glory and honor and praise to our Savior, Jesus Christ!

Lutherans are white, black, brown, yellow and everything in between. Lutherans speak Germanic languages, Romance languages, Oriental languages, African languages, Indian languages, Arabic languages and nearly every dialect known to man. Our church buildings are Gothic cathedrals with organs and bells and incense and beautifully chanted liturgies located in the world's great cities, and our church buildings are mud huts in the bush with simple tables and chairs and liturgies sung with the aid of drums. Among the world's Lutherans, we are truly as diverse in tribe and tongue as the heavenly choir in Revelation 5:9.

And yet, in matters of doctrine, we biblical and confessional Lutherans rally around the divinely inspired Scriptures and their correct exposition in the Book of Concord. We flock to the Gospel in Word and Sacrament, proclaimed in preaching and partaken of in the Church's worship life of liturgy, prayer and hymnody. We find unity at the baptismal font and in the holy words of Absolution. Though there is a healthy diversity of members in the body, we serve the head, who is Christ. And it is His blood that gives us life, and His body in us that makes us one body in Him.

The word "Syond" in the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod comes from the Greek word that means "walking together". It has rich meaning in our church body, because the congregations voluntarily choose to belong to the Synod. These congregations hold to a shared confession of Jesus Christ as taught in Holy Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions. The Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church are statements of belief put into writing by church leaders during the 16th century. Among the world's confessional Lutherans there is a glorious melding of diversity in non-essentials with unity in the essentials of confessed doctrine and lived-out practice. What a glorious picture of the Church Militant as we move toward the Church Triumphant in the hope of the resurrection and the new creation! Meet the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod here.

The mission of Hope Lutheran Church is to serve and to share Christ with our church and community.

Members of Hope Lutheran Church envision a church that does the following:

  • Offers a spiritual home and a fresh beginning in Christ to all.
  • Provides for the spiritual well-being and growth of those who call Hope their congregational home.
  • Seeks to proclaim the love of God in Jesus Christ to others as God opens such opportunities.
  • Gives glory and praise to God in all we do while maintaining faithfulness. 

Core Values 

  • Bible-Centered: Because the Bible is the inerrant, revealed word of God, it is the lens that focuses our worship, our teaching and our interaction with others. 
  • Community Centered: Because people matter to God, we want to serve both the physical and spiritual needs of the surrounding community.
  • Caring Fellowship: Because people matter to God, we want to care for our Hope Lutheran family, bear one another’s burdens, and show the world we are Christians by our love for one another.
  • Prayer: Because we, as a congregation, have witnessed the power of prayer, we understand the necessity of bringing absolutely everything before the Lord in prayer.
