“You should diligently learn the Word of God and by no means imagine that you know it. Let him who is able to read take a psalm in the morning, or some other chapter of Scripture, and study it for a while. This is what I do. When I get up in the morning, I pray and recite the Ten Commandments, the Creed, and the Lord’s Prayer with the children, adding any one of the psalms. I do this only to keep myself well acquainted with these matters, and I do not want to let the mildew of the notion grow that I know them well enough. The devil is a greater rascal than you think he is. You do as yet not know what sort of fellow he is and what a desperate rogue you are. His definite design is to get you tired of the Word and in this way to draw you away from it. This is his aim.” Dr. Martin Luther (WA 32, 64f.).

Wisdom For Everyday

God The Final & Eternal Judge Knows That:

Evil will always rabidly accuse others of what itself is doing, or what it plans to do in the future.
Evil does this in order to distract people’s attention away from its own actions, as well as excuse its own behavior.

Prayer: God, by Your Grace in the Name of Jesus Christ, let me not be lead astray by false accusation.

“I Look For The Resurrection Of The Dead, And The Life Of The World To Come”

– The Nicene Creed 325 A.D.

 We say that during worship twice a month. Do we really use that belief to strengthen us in our daily life?

I heard a story about a family that tragically lost three of their four children within just two weeks to a deadly, infectious disease. One child was left – a four-year-old boy. The family had buried the third child just two weeks before Easter. On Easter morning the parents and the remaining child went to church. The mother taught her Sunday School class about the resurrection of Jesus and the father read the Easter story as he led the opening Sunday School devotion. People who knew about their great loss wondered how they could do it. One family of the church were in the car on their way home after church when their 16-year-old asked his father, "Dad, that couple must believe everything about the Easter Story, don’t they?" "Of course they believe it," said the father, "all Christians do!" The young man then said, "But not like they do!"


The Resurrection is one of the Foundational Doctrines of Christianity. It is taught in both the Old and the New Testaments, and it was an awesome source of personal strength to those who choose to cherish it.

Psalm 71:20 “Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.”

Job 19:25-27 “I know that my Redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand upon the earth. And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God; I myself will see him with my own eyes—I, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!

Daniel 12:2 “Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt..”

Isaiah 53 prophecies the resurrection of the Messiah, and the New Testament so beautifully displays how that came true.


The New Testament is completely founded on the reality of the physical resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Luke 24:46-47 Jesus said “He told them, “This is what is written: The Christ will suffer and rise from the dead on the third day, and repentance and forgiveness of sins will be preached in his name to all nations,”

Romans 10:9 “That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 “For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures”

Indeed, the entire chapter of 1 Corinthians 15 is known as “The great resurrection chapter.” I challenge you to search the Scriptures yourself and see how absolutely foundational the doctrine of the resurrection of the dead is.

Finally, think about this: If God created all these unspeakable immense cosmos, and caused life to occur in all its’ enormous varieties, all from nothing then why can He not do it again? Like Paul says in Acts 26:8 “Why should any of you consider it incredible that God raises the dead?”


Praise God for the forgiveness of sins and the gift of salvation through the death and resurrection of our Creator and Redeemer, Jesus Christ our Lord.

         "The Enduring Determination of Jesus Christ's Love for You! 

Please visit us online for Weekly worship during the COVID-19 social distancing mandate. And afterwards joins as we grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Did you know that the Hymn "A Might Fortress Is Our God" was written during such a time as this?

God is the God of History, and what He has done before He can do once more. Now is our time in History and God will grant us the strength for each day and we Hold to Him through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

“Never Will I Leave You, Never will I forsake You" - Hebrews 13:5

Please visit us online for Weekly worship during the Covid-19 social distancing mandate.

Welcome to our website! We’re glad that you found us, and we hope that you’ll consider visiting us in person soon. In the meantime, let us share with you just a little bit about ourselves.


Faith Lutheran Church, a member congregation of The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, is a congregation made up of broken and failed, yet redeemed sinners who gather weekly to receive the undeserved gifts of God’s love and mercy, as they are poured out upon us through Jesus Christ, His Word, and His Sacraments. Then, having been nourished and fed with the gifts of God, we seek to go outside the four walls of our church building and to love others as we ourselves have been loved by God.


You won’t find anything fancy here. We don’t worship according to the latest trends, but rather rejoice in the opportunity to experience the patterns of worship the Church has used for millennia. In doing so, our diverse congregation, made up of young and old, singles and married, families with children, and those without, join our voices with the Church of centuries past in confessing our sins, our faith, and in praising our God for His abundant gifts.


We’re not here to tell you to come be holy like us, but rather to invite you to come be a forgiven sinner like us. For here, in a small church, situated out in the country community, Jesus is at work, gathering His people together to deliver to them what they cannot live without: His forgiveness, and His loving direction.


Yes, we’re a community of sinners, who though different in many ways, nevertheless have one thing in common: our shared need for forgiveness and a desire to have a real relationship with Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.


We look forward to meeting you!
