A church of the Unaltered Augsburg Confession AD 1530 & the Book of Concord AD 1580/1584

Hope Lutheran is a member of the English District of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod and boldly confesses the truths of Holy Scripture as they are correctly explained in the Ecumenical Creeds and the Lutheran Confessions. We approach God with humility and repentance and receive from him the greatest gift we can imagine, forgiveness and life through our Lord Jesus Christ.

We who have been washed clean in Holy Baptism gather weekly as a family to receive these blessings.

The Church Advent Season
For the Church this is a time of solemn reflection on Christ’s coming for his work of redemption and so is a season of repentance, the focus more reflective and subdued. The Church color is blue, for Mary, the mother of God, and the focus is not on Mary per se but on the humanity of Christ, true man born of a Virgin. The color blue is said to symbolize “hope”, as in recalling His first coming, we anticipate His coming today.
