Wednesday, October 7, 2015 Devotion “As for the idol, a craftsman casts it, a goldsmith plates it with gold, and a silversmith fashions chains of silver. He who is too impoverished for such an offering selects a tree that does not rot; He seeks out for himself a skillful craftsman to prepare an idol that will not totter.” (Isaiah 40:19,20) What can a man make that compares to the universe? What shall a man craft that He can offer the Lord which compares to the magnificence and beauty of a flower? What complexity can a man devise that compares to even the complexity of an insect, let alone the man himself? What is man that he should esteem himself so highly in the presence of the Almighty who created all things? Lord, throughout the ages, You have suffered the derision of those who bring You down to be a creation in their minds. Worse than that are those who reject You outright and invent their own gods. Guide me away from such foolishness and the pollution of those who think this way to marvel at the truth that it is You who has created all things and this one thing You ask, that we would walk humbly with You. Lord Jesus, if You have asked for something incredibly difficult, it would have been understandable, but You simply asked that we give up our fight against You and come walk with You. Help me take the simple path You have laid out before me and walk with You today and every day knowing that You alone have given the words of eternal life. May I learn from Your gentle and humble presence the truth of the ages. 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)
