WELCOME TO FIRST LUTHERAN CHURCH of Manhattan Beach, CA
We're glad you found us! We are delighted to welcome you, wherever you are in your spiritual journey. Take a few minutes to visit our website and learn more about how we live out our mission of being "A Caring Community of Faith in Action."
As Lutheran Christians we accept and teach the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther and the 16th century reformers. These teachings can be summarized by the simple phrases, “Grace alone,” “Faith alone” and “Scripture alone.”
God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly
By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.
The Bible is God’s inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.
