“When we were baptized in Christ Jesus, we were baptized into his death. We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might live a new life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his.” From Evangelical Lutheran Worship p. 279

Our Baptismal service begins with, “In Holy Baptism, our gracious heavenly Father frees us from sin and death by joining us to the death and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ. By the waters of baptism, we are reborn children of God.”

If you are seeking baptism for yourself or for a loved one such as a new child, we would love to talk to you. Baptism is the foundational act for living a life of faith. Jesus told us to baptize, so we do and we love to be a part of this gracious act of our loving God. If you have questions about the meaning and significance of baptism please contact one of the pastors.

Marriage is a gift of God, intended for the joy and mutual strength of those who enter it and for the well-being of the whole human family. The church in worship surrounds the promises of those who marry with the gathering of God’s people, the witness of the word of God and prayers of blessing and intercession.

Lord of Life believes that marriage is a lifelong relationship based on the promise of faithfulness. We believe that marriage should be rooted in steadfast love of God and that God's faithfulness and self-giving love are the models of the relationship in a marriage. We believe that God, along with the church, desires that marriage be characterized by faithfulness, joy, love, growth, and fulfillment.
