Lutheran Christians recognize two actions that are sacramental:
We believe that when Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,” he meant what he said. Therefore we believe that baptism is for all, regardless of age, gender, race, or sexual orientation.
Through baptism, God sets apart God’s children to spread the Word of God and share the good news of Jesus’ resurrection. That gift is open to everyone.
We believe that when Jesus said, “This is my body,” and, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood,” he meant what he said. Lutheran Christians believe that the bread we eat and the wine we drink during worship is truly the body and blood of Christ.
We also believe that this gift is freely given to all. Any who wish to receive the body and blood of Christ is welcome. You do not need to be a member of this church, nor do you even need to be Lutheran to receive this gift. We simply prefer that you are a baptized Christian.
- For those who prefer, we offer a gluten free bread option for the body of Christ.
- We choose to only offer wine for the blood of Christ.
- We believe that the sacrament is no less effective if only one of the elements is consumed.
