In faithfulness to God and his word, we do not ignore sin, but we confront it and we do this so that we may announce God’s forgiveness of sins for all people.

This is what Jesus won for us when he suffered and died on the cross. This is what his resurrection from the dead guarantees us. This good news gives us great joy and comfort, even when we face the trials and troubles of life. We are convinced that nothing can separate us from the love of God, because Jesus has risen from the dead and ascended to heaven where he rules all things for the good of everyone who believes in him. We believe that God has done all of this for us, not because we have earned or deserved it, but because he loves us. Through his good news he calls people everywhere to believe his promises. This is why at Ascension Lutheran Church it is our mission to proclaim this good news in our church, in our community and throughout the world. We invite you to come and hear it too!

Please visit us on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am

A Message from Our Pastor

Dear friend, 
Life can be hectic and full of problems with our bodies, minds, relationships, as well as with our souls.

The cause of all our problems is sin—our sin as well as the sins of others. If you have felt this sting of sin, I have some wonderful news I’d like to share with you. 

Your God is aware of your problem, and he has done something about it!  He sent his Son Jesus to be the cure for sin.

By Jesus’ perfect life, by his death on the cross, and by his rising from the dead, God has given us the solution to sin.  Even more, God has promised us the crown of eternal life.  We have summarized this message as we proclaim, “Through the cross, a crown!”

While our lives on this earth will always be lived under a cross, in the end we will receive a crown that will never perish, spoil or fade.

I invite you and your family to join our Ascension family, where everything we do centers around this wonderful news.   We believe God has put us here to connect you to God’s Word, God’s people and God’s work.  I hope to meet you soon.
