First Lutheran Church is a member congregation of The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS) and is part of the Pacific Southwest District.
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
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.
For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8 : 38-39
