At St. Peter, we believe that we are saved from the penalty of our sins by the grace of God through faith in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on the cross, as revealed in the Bible.
We believe in the God the Father Almighty, the Maker of heaven and earth. And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He arose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From thence He shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit. The holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
- The Apostles Creed
We are a congregation of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. This means that we "walk together" with other Missouri Synod congregations who hold to a shared confession of Jesus Christ as taught in Holy Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions. Holy Communion is celebrated every the first and third Sundays at St. Peter. This is a very sacred and holy meal for us. We believe that in the Lord’s Supper we receive the body and blood of Jesus for the forgiveness of our sins and the strengthening of our faith. We also believe that all who come to the Lord’s Table should be in unity in what they believe about Jesus and His teachings.
If you have any questions about this, please talk with Pastor Christenson or one of our elders before the communion service when you visit us.
Our Pastor's Bio
Pastor Tim Christenson entered the ministry and came to St. Peter Lutheran from Washington, DC after retiring from the Defense Department. Don't be surprised if he slips a bit of humor into his sermons, while waiting for his career as a stand-up comic to take off. He and Glenda have six children and at least that many grandchildren by now.
