"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.

The King’s Judgment Saint Matthew 25:31-46 Over the course of the last three Sundays, we’ve been moving toward the end of the world and the Judgment.

The Bridegroom Comes! Saint Matthew 25:1-13 Over the course of the last three Sundays of the Church Year, beginning with last Sunday, our thoughts have been and continue to be guided to consider the coming end of this world and the beginning of the next.

Safety in a Dangerous Place Saint Luke 17:20-30 We’re nearing the end of the Church Year. Advent will soon be upon us, and then Christmas. Things are moving fast and you can’t help but wonder, “Will I be ready for it?” Will I be ready when that big day arrives? It’s important to be ready[…]
Blessed In Christ Saint Matthew 5:1-12 The Feast of All Saints goes back a long, long way in the history of the Christian Church.

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;[…]
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. "
