WORD FROM OUR PASTOR
Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Gloria Dei Lutheran Church is a people, not a place. Our goal is to be Gloria Dei not only to the Fox Hill community, but to also be Gloria Dei at the park, beach, grocery store, school, work, and beyond. Maybe you have experienced Gloria Dei in one of these settings and are wondering how you can become involved.
First, begin with prayer. Pray that the Holy Spirit would help discern which faith community is best for you and, if applicable, your family. Second, check out our calendar of events, and if something catches your eye that you might like, then try it. Third, join us for worship.
The folks of Gloria Dei are full of love, the love of Christ; and they would love nothing more than to share that love and their experience of Jesus with you. Blessings as you search for a faith community that you can be part of and support. Jesus deserves our worship and our praise. Peace be the journey.
WHAT DO LUTHERANS BELIEVE?
Lutherans are the oldest protestant denomination of Christianity. At the very core of our beliefs is that Jesus the Christ is Lord; we believe in the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; and we believe that salvation belongs to our God, is a gift from God, and there is not anything that we can do to earn it.
At the heart of the Gospel is God’s love for us and for all of God’s creation. There is not anything you can do to make God love you less or more than what God already loves you. Lutherans focus on grace. There are no fire and brimstone messages here. We preach a message that balances the law and the gospel...
