“Jesus is among us to forgive us”
The forgiveness that we, by grace through faith, receive from God for our sins against Him, in turn both leads us to forgive our brothers and sisters in Christ the sins that they commit against us, and leads them to forgive the sins that we commit against them.
“God’s love moves us to give generously all year”
Christians know that by nature we are turned away from God and any action that He would deem truly generous. Nonbelievers can appear to be generous before other people, but the only actions that are truly righteous before God proceed from the faith He generously gives us.
“God’s ‘boots on the ground’ for hurricane cleanup”
God could in an instant put everything right supernaturally, but He chooses to act not in that way but through means, namely through us as His instruments, through our sharing of the abundance of time, talent, and treasure He gives us.
Our Mission Statement
The mission of Pilgrim Lutheran Church is to glorify God in proclaiming the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ with Word and deed in our midst, in our community, and throughout the world.
