Get To Know Our Church and the Community
The purpose of this congregation shall be to give honor and glory to the Triune God, to carry out His will, to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all the world, to manifest the unity of our faith in Jesus Christ as God and Savior, to foster Christian fellowship and love, to extend a helping hand in human need, and to achieve our objectives by the preaching of the Word of God, by the administration of the sacraments, and by the religious instruction of all its members according to the confessional standard of the Evangelical Lutheran Church.
What We Believe
Our church teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.
The teaching of the Lutheran church can be summarized in three short phrases: Grace alone, faith alone, and Scripture alone.
God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him, and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.
By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it has the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.
The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.
Who is Jesus?
For more than 2,000 years, people have asked the question, "Who is Jesus?". We were not present when Jesus lived on this earth, but in the Bible, we have the record of his birth, life, death on the cross, and resurrection. Study of the Bible, God's Word, will enable you to seek out the answer to this age-old question.

One Service - Sunday at 10:00 AM – Blended Worship
Recently, the members of Messiah have decided to go back to having one service in order to bring all of our people together as one in Christ. The style of service is blended, where we incorporate both traditional hymns with modern worship songs.
This may be strange for some at first, but we feel it is important to appreciate different types of music styles that aim to praise and worship the One True God. During the worship service, we incorporate liturgy to enhance our worship experience.
Our Sunday service also offers a video-projected order of service and music, which enables you to care for and hold small children without having to juggle service folders and hymnals. If you have any issues with viewing the projected service, we offer a large printed bulletin for you to follow along. You are also encouraged to bring along your own Bible as we learn about God's Word together.
