A message from Pastor Nick Buchholz

Grace, mercy, and peace be unto you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is my great pleasure to make your acquaintance, and I am very much looking forward to getting to know you more while I serve here. I'm not a master when it comes to names so please bear with me if it takes me a few months to remember everyone's name. I will get there, but there's a lot of you and only one of me.

What we believe:

With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod 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.
