Who We Are

  Who We Are  
 
          
Lutheran
We are Lutheran.  Martin Luther (1483-1546) would never have wanted a church body named after him, but that's what happened.  He was a man who was very concerned about the exact words of the Bible, and what the Bible actually said.  As he studied the Bible he found that some of the truths had been covered up and not revealed to the everyday people.  His reforms made a big impact on the church.  Today we do not worship Martin Luther or his words.  Rather, we worship God and thank God that he used a man like Martin Luther to make sure these key truths in the Bible were made known.
