At Shepherd of the Hills we believe, teach and confess that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord, and that through faith in Him we receive forgiveness of sins, eternal life and salvation. Being "Lutheran", our congregations accept and teach the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teachings of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Word alone.
Salvation is the free gift of God's grace for Christ's sake alone.
Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers.
The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ.
Come Worship With Us!
When we worship with other Christians, receive the Lord's Supper and pray, we come close to God through His Son, Jesus Christ, and find forgiveness and new hope for living each day. At Shepherd of the Hills we believe in God's plan of eternal salvation through faith in the dying and rising of God's Son Jesus Christ and join together in worship to celebrate the Good News.
Shepherd of the Hills offers a Traditional service each Sunday morning. Our services are welcoming, practical, and serve as a powerful witness to God's love and forgiveness.
Growing Spiritually Through The Word
We also encourage spiritual development and Christian living and offer a variety of classes and groups that apply the Bible's truths to individuals' lives and help people understand what it means to be a Christian in the 21st century.
Bible Studies present an excellent opportunity to deepen your understanding of God's Word, to explore today's challenging issues, and to experience the support and encouragement of other Christians. We invite you to join one or more of our classes today!
In Christ's Service,
Pastor Mark Darnstaedt
