“Testing the Baptized”
Morning and evening, we pray for God’s holy angel, arguably Christ Himself, to be with us, that the evil foe may have no power over us. And, God is faithful, He will not let us be tested or tempted beyond our ability, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape, that we may be able to endure it.
“Come and see!”
Without trying on clothes at the store, sitting in a car at the dealer, or walking around a college campus, we may not be really sure how well the clothes, car, or college will fit. To some extent we can say the same thing about the Church and its individual congregations. We do best when we come and see for ourselves.
“The Lord’s Prayer and temptation”
We can only be victorious over the devil, the world, and our own sinful nature if we are baptized into Christ, Whom the Holy Spirit notably led into the wilderness in order to be tempted by the devil. There and especially on the cross Jesus defeated them for us.
Our Mission Statement
The mission of Pilgrim Lutheran Church is to glorify God by receiving the forgiveness of sins by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and sharing that salvation through word and deed with those in our midst, in our community, and throughout the world.
