Faith Ev. Lutheran Church in Churubusco, IN is a member congregation of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS).
What We Believe:
What we as Lutherans believe can be summarized in the “Three Solas”:
Sola Gratia (“Grace Alone”): we are all sinners in desperate need of salvation from our sin, from death, and from hell. Salvation is a free gift given to sinners by God’s grace alone, available for all mankind through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.” Ephesians 2:8
Sola Fide (“Faith Alone”): that same free gift of salvation is received only on the basis of our faith in Jesus Christ and not on the basis of our good works or our following a certain set of rules. Jesus’ all-atoning sacrifice on the cross paid for our sins, and by believing in Him we are judged to be righteous in God’s sight, promised an inheritance of everlasting life, and called to a life of discipleship in this life.
“Now it is evident that no one is justified before God by the law, for ‘The righteous shall live by faith.’” Galatians 3:11
Sola Scriptura (“Scripture Alone”): the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God, the only infallible source of eternal truth, and the final authority for all matters pertaining to our faith. It is in the Scriptures that we learn of our salvation, given by God’s grace alone and received through faith alone.
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
Services: Worship services are held weekly on Sundays at 8:00am and 10:00am and on Wednesdays at 7:00pm. Holy Communion is offered at all services on the first, third, and fifth Sundays of the month, every Wednesday, and on feast days and festivals. Our worship is best described as traditional or liturgical. All of our worship services follow the liturgies (set orders) from the Lutheran Service Book (LSB). Hymns are sung with organ accompaniment.
Between Services on Sunday: Adult Bible study is offered year round between Sunday services. Sunday School for children and youth is also held between services from Labor Day to Memorial Day.
