Our Synod

Epiphany Lutheran Church, a congregation of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod, teaches and responds to the great love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith and indwells the lives of all Christians. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.

The teachings of the congregations of the LC-MS can be summarized in three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.

Grace Alone

God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and make a way for people to be forgiven every sin, adopted in God’s own family, have the grand promise of life everlasting in heaven, and live this life in joy and peace.

Faith Alone

By His suffering and death Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for all people. When the message of what Jesus has done through His death and resurrection is shared, the Holy Spirit creates faith in those who hear this “Good News” and don’t reject it. Through this gift of faith in Jesus we are forgiven and receive the gift of eternal life.

Scripture Alone

We rejoice that God has provided for us the Bible. It is God’s inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His eternal truths, His standards for earthly live, and the way of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.
