Thank You!

Please accept my thanks and my family's thanks for the wonderful celebration and reception associated with my installation as Pastor of Holy Ghost Lutheran. I give thanks to God who has called me to serve Him and you, His people, at Holy Ghost Lutheran. To God Be the Glory!

Confessing+Serving+Growing

Confessing+Serving+Growing

These 3 words encapsulate the focus I have proposed for the church and school.

We are a confessing people of God - those who confess the truths of the Christian Faith taught in the Holy Scriptures and faithfully set forth in the Three Creeds and the Lutheran Confessions, chiefly that the sinner is justified by God's grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. (Ephesians 2.4-10)

As a result of this gracious work of our Triune God in us as His people, we are a serving community - saving faith is evidenced by works as we love our neighbor, as we live out our vocations (places) in life. (Ephesians 2.10) By serving we reveal the very character of our Savior, Jesus Christ, who came, not to be served, but to serve and to give His life as a ransom for many. (St. Mark 10.45)

As a result of the work of our Triune God in our lives we are a growing people - we grow in the knowledge and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ as we hear the Spirit-inspired Word of God and receive HIs Supper, we grow in serving, and we grow, by God's grace, visibly as God joins to our community new believers who call on His name and praise Him who is the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. (Acts 2.42, 47)
