Ocean Springs, Mississippi

We believe in the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching, we trust the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.

We are Lutheran. We identify with a theological heritage that began with Martin Lutheran. In many ways, he was the first Protestant, seeking to reform the church in 1517. As Lutherans, we believe that we are saved by God’s grace by faith apart from works.

We believe strongly in the vision of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), which declares that:

  • Claimed by God’s grace for the sake of the world, we are a new creation through God’s living word by the power of the Holy Spirit;
  • Gathered by God’s grace for the sake of the world, we will live among God’s faithful people, hear God’s word and share Christ’s supper;
  • Sent by God’s grace for the sake of the world, we will proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed, serve all people following the example of our Lord Jesus, and strive for justice and peace in all the world.
