The Good Shepherd
At the Good Shepherd church we share a living together confident in God’s grace. We are liberated by our faith in him and embrace each other as flawed humans trying to do the right thing in life. Join us and let us help each other with God’s work in Christ’s name for the good of this world. As Lutherans we hold the Bible of the Old and New Testaments to be the divinely inspired book. The scripture alone is the formal principle of the faith, the final authority for all matters of faith and morals and is also used for the inspiration, clarity, sufficiency, and is the final authority.
We receive and embrace with our whole heart the prophetic and apostolic Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the pure, clear fountain of Israel.
We respond and we teach the true love of the The Father, Triune God, the creator of all that exists. At Good Shepherd church through the teachings of Jesus Christ and his Son that suffered for all of the sins of all humans on this planet and to rose again in life in the ultimate victory over Satan and death. As we follow him who creates faith through the Word and Sacraments. The three of the Trinity are co-eternal and also co-equal… One God.
Who or What Is Jesus
This is a old age question. Matter of fact over 2,000 years old. We do not know what he looked like at all. Even know there is record of his birth, his life, and his death on the cross and his resurrection. But we do know he saw people, death, pain, injustice, faith, joy, sadness, unbelief, sinners, believers, sickness, happiness, and most importantly he saw you and your life.
- (1 Corinthians 15:56-57) – The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
- (Galatians 2:20) – I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and game himself for me.
- (Isaiah 53:4-6) – Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned – every one – to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
