Bringing Christ to the Coast
We believe that the entire Bible is God’s inspired and inerrant Word. Based on this understanding of the Word of God, we believe, teach, and confess that Jesus, the Son of God, is the Savior of the World; that He was born of a virgin; lived a perfect, sinless life; died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins; rose physically from the dead so that we might also rise in both body and soul; and that He lives today as the only Lord of all.
The Lutheran Church of Our Savior is dedicated to meeting the needs of our community and the changing lives through Jesus Christ. We are Redeemed, Renewed, and Make Alive through the Divine Service which is God’s Service to us.
The Divine Service is the service in which God offers His free gift of forgiveness of sins to us, poor,needy sinners. We receive, by the Holy Spirit, faith in Jesus through Holy Baptism. That faith is strengthened through the hearing of God’s Sacred Word and receiving His Holy Body and Blood through the Lord’s Supper.
In this same Divine Service we give thanks and sacrifice to God for these gifts. We do so with our prayers of thanksgiving and praise, with hymns of worship that proclaim His glory and with our offerings.
In all of this we are part of the eternal Holy Christian Church. We are Redeemed, Renewed, and Make Alive in Christ by the grace of God, through faith in Jesus by His Holy Spirit. We celebrate this in our Divine Service as is has and will be done forever.
Jesus has also called us to be His witness in spreading the gospel to all people and serving others as He did. As faithful Christians, we strive to bring Jesus to the Salinas Valley and the world. Our members come from throughout the Central Valley.
Our Savior is affiliated with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) and millions of confessional Lutherans worldwide.
