About The Lutheran Church Missouri Synodlcms logo red

 

The LCMS is a Bible-based, mission- oriented confessional Christian denomination. Our Church is based upon the Reformation movement where the hand of God worked through Martin Luther and other reformers to preserve the truth of His Word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In 1580 the official statements of Lutheran belief were gathered together in what is known as the Book of Concord. We place great value in retaining and advancing the cause of the Reformation and are committed to genuine, historical Lutheranism. We strive to make the Love of Christ known through our mission work, outreach and education programs, and helping people within the community on a daily basis.

 

Our Mission

We at Grace Lutheran Church are called to reach, teach and be the people of God, as stewards of the Word of God and the gifts of God.

 

Today, the LCMS has more than 2.3 million baptized members in some 6,200 congregations and more than 9,000 pastors.  Two seminaries and 10 colleges and universities operate under the auspices of the LCMS, and its congregations operate the largest Protestant parochial school system in America. The church broadcasts the saving message of Jesus Christ over KFUO Radio, and it has relationships and active mission work in nearly 90 countries around the world. 

 

The Bible calls Jesus "the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world". Having paid our debt with His blood, Jesus rose from the dead and returned to the heavenly Father to reign over all things. He gave His disciples the command to go into all the world to baptize, teach and observe all that He commanded. He promised that He would continue to be with them through the ages. Through congregations, and our regional and national offices, we strive to carry out our Lord's command to make known His love and forgiveness to the whole world.

The teaching of Martin Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases:

 

"Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone."
