The Good News

As Lutherans, our starting point is the Gospel - the good news that God loves me more than I will ever understand.  I see God's great love demonstrated clearly in the life of God the Son, Jesus Christ.  Jesus gave up his life and died on the cross as a payment for my sin.  Jesus' sinless life and death bring me into a right relationship with God, something I can never achieve by myself.

Lutherans take this good news seriously.  Our central belief is that we are put right with God completely by his grace, his undeserved loving kindness.  We receive this through faith in Jesus Christ (not by our own good works- the things we ourselves do)  This focus on the good news is the reason for our church's existence and the centre of our worship and life.
