Sanctuary – Christmas 2010

We are located at the intersection of IN 37 and 186th St. (Field Drive) in Noblesville, Indiana. While liturgically focused in our service, we pride ourselves on being comfortable in our service, and we welcome people to hear the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. You can find out more about our service times here.

Christ Lutheran Church is a confessional church which believes that the Book of Concord contains the proper confession of faith and interpretation of the Bible. The confessions in the Book of Concord teach the core beliefs of Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, and contain writings by 16th Century reformers in the Christian Church such as Martin Luther. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.   A good summary of the Book of Concord can be found here, courtesy of John the Steadfast.   

At Christ Lutheran Church, we follow the historic (“traditional”) liturgy, or historic formal worship.  These services preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ:  Jesus Christ gave us forgiveness of sins, eternal life and salvation in his death and resurrection;  Christ alone has reconciled the whole world to God;  Jesus Christ serves us again and again as His Gospel is proclaimed, as His people are baptized, and as His Word is read. The Divine Service is important to the life of the LCMS Lutheran, and is described by the former LCMS President, Rev. Dr. A.L. Berry:

“Jesus Christ serves us again and again as His Gospel is proclaimed, as His people are baptized, and as His Word is read. He serves us as His forgiveness is pronounced and penitents absolved. He serves us as He gives us His body and blood under the bread and wine to eat and to drink. This is how our Lord gives us forgiveness, life, and salvation. What a blessing it is to be called and gathered for worship by our good and gracious God!”
