"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.

Knowing and Being Known Saint John 10:11-16 Alleluia! Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia! The Gradual for today, which we sang between the Old Testament Reading and the Epistle, makes two statements about knowing and being able to discern the truth. The first concerns the two disciples from Emmaus who, as they were[…]
Your Life and Conversation In Christ Saint John 20:19-31 Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia! Unlike some Christian holy days that are celebrated for one day only, the Feast of the Resurrection of our Lord continues on. As Lutheran Church-Canada president Timothy Teuscher reminds us in his Easter greetings, “Easter is a seven-week[…]
The End of Death’s Reign Saint Mark 16:1-8 Christ is risen! He is risen indeed! Alleluia! With that greeting we confess the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. The same Man who was crucified by the order of Pontius Pilate, buried by Joseph and Nicodemus, has come out of the grave alive. The Evangelist[…]
Words from the Cross of Eternal Life The Passion Narratives On Palm Sunday, there were a great many who accompanied our Lord and came out to witness His entrance into Jerusalem. One Gospel writer describes the crowd of people as a “multitude.” Saint John records the Pharisees exclaiming that “the whole world has gone after[…]
The End of Division through the Word of Christ 1 Corinthians 11:23-32 Undoubtedly, one of the chief ironies to be observed in the history of the Christian Church is that the gift of the Lord in which we are most intimately united with Him has, from the beginning, been the center of controversy and chaos.[…]
What Do You Believe? Saint Matthew 27:11-54 What do you believe? That’s the question for today. At the beginning of our service, we listened to the Palm Sunday account and we heard about the people who welcomed Jesus as He entered into Jerusalem. Many of the people that day had been in nearby Bethany when[…]
Zacchaeus Saint Luke 19:1-10 If tonight’s Office Hymn had been around back when Christ called Zacchaeus down from the sycamore tree, the diminutive tax collector might well have been singing, “Salvation unto us has come,” as he led the Lord Jesus into his house, with Jesus providing the hymn’s “Amen” as He says to Zacchaeus,[…]
The Light and Truth of Christ Saint John 8:42-59 There sure is a lot to take in with today’s reading from Saint’s John’s Gospel, much of it filled with anger and discord, accusation and condemnation. The sweet word of salvation is present, but one must wade through a great deal of unpleasantness to reach it.[…]
The Cost of Discipleship Saint Luke 9:57-62 and Saint Luke 14:25-33 This evening we again join our Lord Jesus in “Facing the Cross.” Throughout our Saviour’s journey on the way to the Cross and His suffering and death and His resurrection on the third day, He speaks with those following along with Him about a[…]
The Rest of the Story Saint John 6:1-15 The Rest of the Story was a Monday-Friday radio program hosted by the late Paul Harvey from the early 1950s until 2008 in which Harvey would tell a story—well two stories, neither of them being all that remarkable on their own, but when connected could be quite[…]
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. "
