Hope Lutheran Church is a member congregation of The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod.
We are committed to the pure preaching of God’s Word and the right administration of the holy Sacraments, to the catechist of all people in the Christian faith, and to liturgical worship consistent with our Reformation heritage. We proclaim Jesus Christ crucified, risen, and reigning for the salvation of the world.
We believe, teach, and confess the doctrine of the evangelical catholic faith as it is taught by the Holy Scriptures and faithfully confessed in the Book of Concord of 1580. We are also a traditionally liturgical congregation, using the worship forms of the western catholic tradition as they have come to us through the Lutheran Reformation. We believe that the purpose of worship is to receive the gifts of salvation which Jesus Christ has won for us by hearing His Word and eating and drinking the Sacrament of His Body and Blood.
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.
