What We Believe

Not all Lutherans are "made the same."  In a world of options, from fast food to divine doctrine, it is good to know not all Lutherans, and certainly not all Christians agree on issues. As far as hot topics in our culture, below you will find brief statements about what we believe about God and the life He has given us to live in His glory.

About Salvation

Lutherans believe a person is saved only by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ. (Eph 2:8-9) Good works do not save us; however, "we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good work which He has planned for us." (Eph 2:10)

About God

Lutherans believe in the Triune God; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit...One God. Matthew 28:18-20

Lutherans believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, the Word of God that became flesh. John 1:14

We use the words of the Apostle's Creed and Nicene Creed regularly in worship as statements of our faith that express these and other truths found in the Bible.

About the Bible

We believe that the Word of God is inspired and infallable. It is our authority on all matters of doctrine. As St. Paul writes, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17

About the Church

Lutherans are a part of the one holy Christian and apostolic Church confessed in the Nicene Creed. Lutherans understand the Church to consist of all those who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

About the Sacraments

Lutherans accept two "sacraments" as defined by having the three following aspects:

1. Instituted by Christ

2. For the forgiveness of sins

3. Uses a tangible, visible element

Therefore, Baptism and Communion are considered "sacraments." Learn more about these by clicking the link to the right or, better yet, attending our Foundations of Faith class.

  • Our Values

    Two things:

     

    First, locally as a congregation we value:

    • Inspiring Worship
    • Family Oriented
    • Passionate Spirituality
    • Courageous Faith
    • Biblical, Grace Oriented Teaching
    • Loving Relationships
    • Empowering Servant Leadership
    • Gifts Based Ministry
    • Faith Sharing Outreach
    • Impacting Communities

     

    Second, as Lutherans in general, we share the values of the Reformation: Sola Gratia, Sola Fide, Sola Scriptura

     

    Sola Gratia (By Grace Alone)

    God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.

     

    Sola Fide (By Faith Alone)

    By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.

     

    Sola Scriptura (By Scripture Alone)

    The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.

  • Our Vision

    Currently our Vision has several aspects of growth:

    1. We desire to see the expansion and development of Youth and Family Ministry. The family unit is crucial to strengthen and develop in faith and love.

    2. We are revitalizing our current campus, from carpet and paint to new classrooms for the children. We seek to impact lives of future generations as well as serve today's community as best we can. Our ECDC and our Kingdom Quest ministries are greatly benefitting by our revitalization efforts.

    3. We are increasing our Home Huddles where people gather in small groups to Live, Love, Laugh, and Learn. Various opportunities exist each day of the week.

    4. We are gathering information in becoming a Multi-Site ministry, seeking to expand north into the Spring Branch/Bulverde area as well as out Hwy 35 working with Word of Life Fellowship to reach the Schertz/Cibolo and surrounding areas.

  • Our Mission

    We believe we are called by the Holy Spirit to live life in ways that bring glory to the Father through His Son, our Savior Jesus Christ.  We further believe that God gives each one of us different gifts to use individually and as a church.  At this time we are in prayer to understand the gifts God has given King of Kings and to understand the mission He has established for the congregation.  We hope to have a new mission statement in early 2019 that reflects the unique mission God has given King of Kings
