Who We Are

What We Believe

At Holy Cross we believe, teach and confess that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord, and that through faith in Him we receive forgiveness of sins, eternal life and salvation.  Being "Lutheran", our congregations accept and teach the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century.  The teachings of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases:  Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.

Grace alone
Salvation is the free gift of God's grace for Christ's sake alone.

Faith alone
Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers.

Scripture alone
The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ.

 

Come Worship With Us!
When we worship with other Christians, receive the Lord's Supper and pray, we come close to God through His Son, Jesus Christ, and find forgiveness and new hopefor living each day.  At Holy Cross we believe in God's plan of eternal salvation through faith in the dying and rising of God's Son Jesus Christ and join together in worship to celebrate the Good News.

Holy Cross offers a Traditional and a Contemporary service each Sunday, along with a mid-week Praise and Prayer service on Wednesday evenings.  Our services are welcoming, practical, and serve as a powerful witness to God's love and forgiveness.

Growing Spiritually Through The Word
We also encourage spiritual development and Christian living and offer a variety of classes and groups that apply the Bible's truths to individuals' lives and help people understand what it means to be a Christian in the 21st century.

Bible Studies present an excellent opportunity to deepen your understanding of God's Word, to explore today's challenging issues, and to experience the support and encouragement of other Christians.  We invite you to join one or more of our classes today!

Basic Lutheran Beliefs - What Do We Believe at Holy Cross?
One way to find out is to come to the Basic Lutheran Beliefs class.  For those who want to join our Christian fellowship but are not yet confirmed as Lutherans, the class can lead directly to Adult Confirmation.  But the class is for anyone who wants to get down to the basics of "What does the Bible say about being a Christian?" 

The topics include:

  • The purpose of the Bible and how to use it
  • What God wants from people like us
  • Why God gave the 10 Commandments
  • Why God came the first Christmas and what Easter means for our eternal future
  • Why Christ created the Church
  • Baptism and Holy Communion, worship and prayer
  • How to grow as Christians

We would love to see you there.  Please check the calendar for the next session or call the Church office for more information.
