We believe the Bible to be God's Inspired Word by which God guides our faith and our lives. We teach that humanity is saved by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ. We are centered in Christ; teaching his Word; administering his sacraments; seeking to serve him both in life and in mission. All who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior may partake of the Holy Eucharist.
As a Lutheran congregation we are a part of a rich heritage and in mission programs & activities, both locally & around the world. We have joined the ELCA Covenant to Care for Creation, to become a more careful consumer of Earth's resources. We are a member of Glastonbury Links Together & Manchester Area Conference of Churches (MACC)
