Immanuel Lutheran Church Beliefs, Practices, and Confessional Standard

We accept and preach the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone. We teach and respond 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.  For more information on our belief and practice (goes to LCMS Website), please click here:

In our confessional standard, we accept the Scriptures as the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God, and we subscribe unconditionally to all the symbolical books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church as a true and unadulterated statement and exposition of the Word of God.  We accept the Lutheran Confessions as articulated in the Book of Concord of 1580 because they are drawn from the Word of God, and on that account we regard their doctrinal content as a true and binding exposition of Holy Scripture and as authoritative for all pastors, congregations and other rostered church workers of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.  For more information on our confessional standard (goes to LCMS Website), please click here:

You have been thinking – even inspired – to finally find a group of Christians, and to partner, learn, and grow with them in our Christian walk in faith.  This desire is as old as the early Christian Church.  Immanuel offers you such a home, and we would love to greet you.  Shouldn’t you take that first step today?  Email Immanuel Pastor Rev. Josh Reifsteck today on his official email: or go to the “Contact” page for more Immanuel contact information.
