"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.

Oh Give Thanks To the Lord Saint Luke 12:13-21 To the people whom he calls the “redeemed of the Lord”—to those rescued from sin and death, like you and me, the Psalmist declares, “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever.” Where true faith exists, so also[…]
Jesus Comes To Save Us Saint Luke 7:11–17 The point of today’s Gospel account of the raising of the widow of Nain’s son from the dead is, as Luther comments, for us to “know that we need not be afraid of death and the judgment. For Christ does not come to judge and condemn us;[…]
Angels, etc. Saint Matthew 18:1–11 Today is the one day in the Church Year that we take the time to consider angels, that is, beyond the occasional mention of them, such as at Christmas and Easter when they are present in the narrative to announce the good news of these salvation events. Today we pause[…]
Strangers Here Saint Luke 17:11-19 Last Sunday we heard a parable told by our Lord Jesus involving a Samaritan man and some Jewish men. Today we also hear a story involving a Samaritan man and some Jewish men, but this story is not made up; it is no parable, but a real event in the[…]
The Good Samaritan Saint Luke 10:23–37 Hezekiah was a good and faithful king of Judah. He was 25 years old when he began to rule and he reigned in Jerusalem for 29 years. Of him we are told that, “he did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, according to all that David[…]
God Turning Things Upside Down Saint Mark 7:31–37 What would you think if someone told you that things had just turned “upside down” for them? Without any other information than “upside down,” you’d likely assume that something terrible had suddenly happened; such as it did with the residents of coastal Texas when Hurricane Harvey visited[…]
Chief of Sinners Saint Luke 18:9–14 “Chief of sinners, though I be, Jesus shed His blood for me.” This is what Jesus has done for sinners like you and like me. He shed His blood; He suffered and died on the altar of Calvary’s cross for us, to atone for our sins and for the[…]
“Don’t Give Up!” Psalm 27 The day before Gerry was called home to heaven by our gracious Lord, I was with him in his hospital room with his dear children Marianne, Barbara, and David. And beside Gerry’s bedside we prayed Psalm 27, the Psalm that Gerry himself had chosen for this service today. After we[…]
The Stones of Jerusalem Saint Luke 19:41–48 Have you ever heard the expression, “If these walls could talk?” It’s what a person might think while walking through a great hall built ages ago—a place in which generation upon generation of people lived and experienced all sorts of things, from the mundane, everyday things of life,[…]
Salvation Shrewd Saint Luke 16:1-13 Can you imagine the Lord Jesus commending you for being deceitful—for participating in shady business deals and even committing the crime of fraud? Like me, you probably cannot. It seems ridiculous to think that Jesus would condone such behaviour, let alone praise it. It may seem as though this is[…]
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. "
- Rev. Dr. Kenneth Voege
