Friday, July 31, 2015 Devotion “You who are far away, hear what I have done; and you who are near, acknowledge My might.” Sinners in Zion are terrified; trembling has seized the godless. “Who among us can live with the consuming fire? Who among us can live with continual burning?” (Isaiah 33:13,14). When judgement comes, those who know the Lord fear what is coming. The call is for those who do not know the Lord to draw close to Him. Judgement does come and those who have been sinning against the Lord will be held accountable. Take care to pay attention to what is important and not to get carried away with things that are not important. The Lord alone will accomplish what He purposes. Lord, You have all things in your hands. You know the times and seasons. Help me to not be one who is far away from You, but one who is always drawing closer to Your purpose and presence. Remind me that no matter the season, or the situation, I can do all things through You who strengthens me. Guide me in the strength of Your Word that I would abide in You and You in me. Almighty Lord of all, You have spoken Your purpose over and over again and in each generation, there are the few that hear, but the many who do not. Help me to be one who hears Your plea and Your call to follow You through the sinful mess of this world knowing that You alone have the Words of eternal life. Guide me today and every day to walk with You alone who saves. Amen.

Welcome To ALC!

American Lutheran Church is a North American Lutheran Church (NALC).

  • Congregationally Focused - We strive to be a church body that is organized to facilitate the ministries of local congregations in a posture of servanthood and a spirit of partnership, through the provision of resources, connections and information.
  • Traditionally Grounded - We affirm the ecumenical creeds and the faithful witness of the Church across time and space. We endorse the form and practices of the universal Church that are consistent with Scripture, particularly the office of the ministry and the tradition of worship under Word and Sacrament. We seek dialogue and fellowship with other Lutheran churches and with faithful Christians of other confessions.
  • Mission Driven - We believe that the mission of the Church is to preach the Gospel and to make disciples for Christ. We believe that making disciples — in our congregations, in our communities and nations, and around the world — must be a priority of the Church in the present age.
  • Christ Centered - We confess the apostolic faith in Jesus Christ according to the Holy Scriptures. We affirm the authority of the Scriptures as the authoritative source and norm, “according to which all doctrines should and must be judged” (Formula of Concord). We accept the ecumenical creeds and the Lutheran Confessions as true witnesses to the Word of God.

  • Christianity is not based upon works "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves,it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast." (Ephesians2:8-9) Mankind was created in the image of God “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.  God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” (Genesis 1:26, 27)

  • This Church Worships The Lord God Of All Creation “Though the fig tree should not blossom and there be no fruit on the vines, though the yield of the olive should fail and the fields produce no food, though the flock should be cut off from the fold and there be no cattle in the stalls, yet I will exult in the Lord, I will rejoice in the God of my salvation.” (Habakkuk 3:17, 18) “Beyond all these things put on love, which is the perfect bond of unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.” (Colossians 3:14-17) We Believe In One God, Creator Of All Things The Lord our God is One, Father, Son and Holy Spirit in accordance with the three Eccumenical Creeds. “There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.” (Ephesians 4:4-6)
