Beautiful German Architecture
Lutheran Church originated as a German-speaking Lutheran church. The Germanic heritage
can be seen in the beautiful design of the church, with wood accents,
cathedral ceilings lined with wooden beams, stone walls, and an exterior that resembles a castle. The pipes of the organ accents the wall behind the altar, as wooden pews line the aisle. Beautiful arched stained glass windows line each side of the sanctuary.
Formation of Lutheran Churches
churches follow the Christian beliefs that are in the old and new
Testaments of the Bible. We follow the teachings of Jesus Christ by
sharing Christianity to others in our community and around the world.
The Lutheran churches came about from the reformation of the Protestants
churches in the 1500s, led by a German monk and scholar named Martin Luther. Luther's "95 Theses," held two central beliefs - that the Bible is
the central religious authority and that humans may reach salvation only
by their faith and not by their deeds.
North American Lutheran Church
"A renewed Lutheran community moving forward in faith, the NALC is focused on living out Christ's Great Commission to go and make disciples in North America and around the globe. We invite you to learn more about our church family." -NALC
Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ
"We're Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ, and our name pretty much says it all. We're not a denomination, we're a movement. We view the local church as the place where people in the community come to get connected with God and one another. We celebrate the fact that everyone is wired a little differently; it allows each and every one of us to serve according to our own unique strengths, skills and talents." -LCMC
