to the Living Word Lutheran Church website. We pray that God may bless this opportunity to hear about your Savior, Jesus Christ.
Jesus is your Savior. He has redeemed you, a lost and condemned person, purchased and won you from all sin, from death, and from the power of the devil, not with gold or silver, but with His holy, precious blood and His innocent suffering and death.
To hear more about how Christ saved you from sin, death and the devil, come join us Sunday mornings or contact Pastor Timothy Wheaton. His contact information is on the left. Also, feel free to look through this website for more information on our church.
Who are we … We are Living Word because God’s word is living and powerful, able to create faith in sinful and rebellious hearts. It has the power to make those who are spiritually dead alive in Christ. Nothing else on earth has the power to do this.
Hebrews 4:12 “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword.”
We are Lutheran… because we believe and teach the beautiful Biblical principles reclaimed in the Lutheran Reformation: we are saved by grace alone, by faith alone, by Scripture alone. Also, because we confess the creeds of the Lutheran Church without qualification as they are found in the Book of Concord 1580.
Grace alone… Grace is undeserved love. Because of our sin we deserve death and hell, but God in His love for us gives us forgiveness and heaven.
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Faith Alone… The way we receive this gift of forgiveness and eternal life is through faith in Christ Jesus.
John 3:18 “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.”
Scripture Alone… The only way we can know of God and His will for us is through God’s word -the Bible.
2 Timothy 3:16 “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.”
We are a Church because… Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”
We are a Member of the CLC…which stands for the Church of the Lutheran Confession. For more information visit http://clclutheran.org/
Pastor T.B. Wheaton, January 15, 2017
16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And as was his custom, he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and he stood up to read. 17 And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written,
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
19 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.”
20 And he rolled up the scroll and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. 21 And he began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” (ESV)
