Christ Our Redeemer Lutheran Church
14722 Morris Ave
Allen Park, Michigan 48101
Christ Our Redeemer Lutheran Church was founded on January 20, 2006.
Along with the help of Pastor Mark Raitz, we came together to form a congregation based on Holy Scripture. After much discussion and prayer we held our first official service on
Sunday February 5, 2006.
We believe that the church is the assembly of all believers among who the Gospel is preached in its truth and purity and that the sacraments are administered according to the Gospel.
(Augsburg Confession-Article VII.)
Christ Our Redeemer is a congregation who truly cares for each other. A congregation where we confess, worship, believe and live the faith of Christ who is our Redeemer! Our congregation is small and growing. We are a "family" who care about each other. Individuals who all have special gifts that God has given us to use. We encourage one another to share those gifts to glorify God. We invite you to join us
WHAT WE BELIEVE
Christ Our Redeemer is a true Lutheran Church.
We accept and acknowledge that all the Canonical books of the Old and New Testament as the inspired and revealed word of God
We believe that all of the writings contained in the Book of Concord of 1580 are a true and sound
representation of Christian doctrine, taken from and in agreement with Holy Scripture
The Apostle's Creed, Nicene Creed, and Athanasian Creed ( a creed is simply a statement of what we believe) The unaltered Augsburg ConfessionThe Apology of the Augsburg Confession The Smalcald ArticlesLuther's Large CatechismLuther's Small Catechism The Formula of Concord
In simple terms, we base all that we teach on the Holy Bible, in word and sacraments.
Our "family" atmosphere is our most important goal.
We want to be close to one another, giving love and support to every member.
Teaching the Gospel in its truth and purity. In today's society we want to live in the Gospel but we can not forget that God also gave us the Law.
Supporting our Community and Neighbors.
Being a good neighbor to people who are in need and giving them a place where they can experience the peace that only God can give.
Reasons not to go to church
I believe in God, why do I have to go to church
It doesn't say in the bible I have to go to church
I work six days a week, I need a day to sleep
I'm too busy to go to church
The only thing a church wants is money
The sermons are dull, music is boring, people are hypocrites.
Why you should attend Church
Because you believe in God!
Learning- the word is being taught in it's purity How to
read Gods word and how to understand it.
Strength- we grow in strength as we study God's word
Peace- knowing God is ALWAYS there no matter what.
Love- you learn to love the way God loves
Forgiveness- you learn to forgive yourself as well as others
Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another ---and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
We believe that the Bible is the TRUE word of God
and is not open for human interpretation.
18) For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19) and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part from the Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written
Christ Our Redeemer Lutheran Church
The Lord has planted us here in order to spread the Gospel in Allen Park and elsewhere. He gave us gifts and talents to use as we carry out our responsibilities of sharing the life giving and life saving Word and Sacraments. To this end, we commit our time, talents and treasures in service to our Savior.
Join us on Sunday Morning We worship at 10 a.m.
Meet Pastor Joel Holls
We use the Lutheran Service Book in Worship and we celebrate Holy Communion at each service.
Now that we are in the season of Lent, our Church worship takes on a more penitential or "repentant" tone. The parament color for Lent is purple, a color often associated with penitence. The "Hymn of Praise" is temporarily taken out of the liturgy. The word "Alleluia" is also not spoken as well.
By not using the alleluia — a joyful expression meaning "Praise the Lord" — until Easter, the Lenten season is clearly set apart as a distinct time from the rest of the year.
When we bring the Hymn of Praise and the Alleluia back on Easter morning, it forms a powerful contrast with the festive celebration of Jesus' resurrection.
