Our Mission Statement
Divinity Evangelical Lutheran Church is a family of believers that shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ to strengthen God’s people and to reach out to the Eastside community and beyond. We are, “The country church in the big city.”
What We Believe
Everything that we teach is Christ centered.
We teach exactly what the Bible teaches; we don’t teach our interpretation but God’s interpretation. We believe that the Bible is the perfect words of God that He had written down for our benefit.
We believe that Jesus died for the sins of the whole world. He shed his blood on the cross to forgive each and every person. God loved us so much that he sent his Son to save us because we could not save ourselves.
We also believe as the Bible teaches, that only believers in Jesus will go to heaven. We will go to heaven because Jesus rose from the dead to prepare heaven for us.
We are Lutheran and therefore teach what the bible teaches. Martin Luther revived this true teaching which had been lost. God’s Word teaches that we are saved by grace alone through faith alone and we find Jesus in the scriptures alone.
We believe that God has given us many gifts and talents to use in helping others. He has given to us many opportunities to share our faith. We pray that we will see more of you as we search for lost souls.
