We Believe in the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
It is through the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus Christ that we have forgiveness of our sins, life, and salvation. We believe that Jesus will return to take all believers with him to Heaven. This is most certainly true.

First Lutheran Ministries
A ministry is all about the giving of ourselves, our time and our individual talents. It’s using our available resources to bless and to help others. Here at First Lutheran Church, we use our ministries not only for that purpose but also to study God's word and to enjoy the fellowship with our brothers and sisters in Christ.
