"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.

At the Word of Jesus Saint Luke 5:1-11 The Gospel text that’s before us this morning is from early on in the earthly ministry of our Lord Jesus.

The ‘Truly, Truly’ of the Trinity Saint John 3:1-17 Today we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Trinity, a festival day of the Christian Church not devoted to an event, such as the birth or the resurrection of our Lord, but to a fundamental teaching of the Christian faith, namely that, as the Athanasian Creed[…]
Pentecost’s “New Law” Acts 2:1-21 and Saint John 14:23-31 Today we celebrate the Day of Pentecost, as Christians have for nearly two millennia.

We Are His Witnesses Saint John 15:26-16:4 We are His witnesses. This is what we sang five times in the first hymn today. This is what our Lord Jesus tells us in the Gospel Reading that we heard. Though He said it to His disciples in the Upper Room before He went with them to[…]
Heilsgeschichte! Saint Luke 24:44-53 Heilsgeschichte! If you’re itching to respond, “God bless you!” or “Gesundheit!” it’s understandable, for that strange utterance does sound like some sort of noise a nasally distressed individual might make. Heilsgeschichte! Gesundheit! God bless! Thank you very much! Heilsgeschichte, however, is a German word that means, “salvation history”—it’s a word I[…]

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
