The Didache, the Teaching of the Twelve Apostles, was written during the first century of the Church’s life. While this text was highly regarded by the Early Church Fathers it was lost to the Church for some 800 years before being rediscovered in the 1800’s. Join Lutheran Essentials starting on May 2nd at 7pm as we study this Apostolic Age document.
We exist to bring the message and example of Jesus Christ to Greater Boston and beyond.” Yes, this, our Mission Statement is ambitious, and yes, we admit we will never accomplish it perfectly. But thanks be to God for nevertheless entrusting us with the Keys of His Kingdom through His Holy Word in the Bible, and His precious Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
As Lutheran Christians we believe, teach and confess Christ Crucified, Risen, and Coming Again on the Last Day. We also heed His admonition to love our neighbors as ourselves. All this we do in an atmosphere of liturgical reverence, a high regard for His gift of music, and even a healthy sense of humor which acknowledges that we are saved by Grace not works!
