With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God’s Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.

Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners. He now calls us his friends. The church family at Peace Lutheran would like to share the peace we have in our relationship with Christ to one another and to the community around us. The good news of eternal salvation in Jesus Christ is just too good to keep to ourselves.
Those who join our fellowship are encouraged to grow and mature in understanding Christ's love through regular Worship, Study of God's Word, use of the Sacraments, and Prayer.
Living in God's love, we strive for the highest standards of Godly service in wise management of His material gifts used in unselfish service to the needs of others. In this way, we seek to honor God through our every act, word, and deed.
