Good Shepherd is a community of Lutheran believers dedicated to knowing and serving Jesus Christ. As God’s body of believers is made up of many unique parts, Good Shepherd has its uniqueness and strengths including:
Good Shepherd is a Biblical church focused on the triune God: Father as creator, Son (Jesus) as Redeemer, and Spirit as enabler. We believe Scripture is God’s Word, ageless and unchanging, as it speaks to our lives today.
Unswerving in our commitment to God’s Word, we are a caring church. We are well aware of our own sinfulness (which we confess at each service). All are welcome. We care and support each other as we journey through a perilous world.
We love to worship God. We worship in both a traditional style (9:00) and more contemporary style (10:30), along with education hour geared for all ages (9:00). In Worship we apply God’s Word to our lives, celebrate our gift of forgiveness, and receive His forgiveness and strength through communion often (twice a month).
We have multiple opportunities to connect with others through fellowship, many involving the opportunity to grow through the study of God’s Word.
We are also here to serve each other and our community. We have a growing number of ways to make an impact for those in need.
“The bottom line is that a person’s moral foundation is either based upon Christian spirituality and God’s Word, or it is based on worldly perspectives.” George Barna
While we promote an atmosphere of loving and caring for each other, just as Jesus did for us, as the Apostle Paul suggests, doctrine is important:
Titus 1:9 He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.
Good Shepherd belongs to a Synod of Lutherans known as LCMS (Lutheran Church Missouri Synod). You can read more about the beliefs and teachings that we subscribe to on the Missouri Synod website.
