What We Believe

Our congregation is a member of The Lutheran Church -- Missouri Synod.  Below you will find various brief papers written by the former president of the LCMS, the late Dr. Alvin Barry.  It is our hope that these papers will help you understand what we believe and teach.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about anything we believe and teach, you are encouraged to contact our pastors with your concerns.  They would be happy to help you find the answers you are looking for.
