"This doctrine of Christ and of the apostles, from which the true faith of the primitive church was received, the apostles at first delivered orally, without writing, but later, not by any human counsel but by the will of God, they handed it on in the Scriptures."
- Martin Chemnitz
Our faith is in One God, the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. This is confessed in the ecumenical creeds.
All theology is christology. The Scriptures testify and speak concerning Jesus. It’s all about Him.
We retain the ceremonies and traditions of the ancient church because they deliver Jesus and the forgiveness of sins in Word and Sacrament.
The real adornment of the churches is godly, practical, and clear teaching, the godly use of the sacraments, ardent prayer, and the like.

It’s No Contest! Saint Matthew 4:1-11 The Philistine champion Goliath was a nine and a half foot tall giant of a man, a seasoned veteran of war from the time of his youth. The armor that he wore weighed more than the average soldier. His coat of mail alone was over a hundred and twenty[…]
Shhh! It’s a Secret! Saint Matthew 6:1-6; 16-21 I’d like to tell you a little real life Ash Wednesday story about a dad and his young son. The two of them, along with Mom, were at home getting ready to set off for Church, for the Ash Wednesday service. Before leaving, Dad wanted to make[…]
The Word of God for You Saint Luke 8:4-15 In his letter to the Ephesians, Saint Paul says, “and take up the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.” What we heard in the Epistle Reading for today, from the book of Hebrews, gives the same understanding,[…]
Your Life in the Vineyard Saint Matthew 20:1-16 The parable told by our Lord Jesus, that we heard this morning in today’s Holy Gospel, is commonly called the Labourers in the Vineyard.

Beholding the Glory of the Christ Saint Matthew 17:1-9 The dictionary defines Epiphany in a few different ways. The first relates to the Christian Feast of the Epiphany, commemorating the coming of the Wise Men as the first manifestation of Christ to the Gentiles.

Baptismal Wisdom and Grace Saint Matthew 3:13-17 There is a baptismal thread—a spiritual river—that runs through all history, from you and your baptism back to the very beginning, when, as we hear from the second verse of the Bible, “And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” Of this, Lutheran[…]
Arise, Shine, For Your Light Has Come Saint Matthew 2:1-12 “And nations,” that is, the Gentile people of the world, “shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.” So said the prophet Isaiah, as we heard this morning in the Old Testament Reading. And as we heard last Sunday from[…]
The Song of Simeon Saint Luke 2:22-32 Last Sunday, when the blue of Advent was still upon us in the morning, we heard, in the Holy Gospel, the Magnificat, Mary’s song of praise for His goodness and mercy. Today, in the white of the Christmas season, we hear another song—this one from a man whom[…]
A congregation of believers in Christ, striving in Christ toward the goal of the Christian faith: the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.
"... Rather than being dull, stodgy or stuck in the past, the worship at Our Saviour is substantive and serious. It is substantive in that it is filled from beginning to end with the real meat and potatoes of Christianity. There is no fluff or filler. Everything is directed toward Christ, the forgiveness of our sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting. "
