With Abiding Savior

Our services at Abiding Savior Free Lutheran Church are intended to be:

  1. God-centered
  2. Biblically informed
  3. Gospel-wrought
  4. Congregational
  5. Missional

God’s glory is our focus (God-Centered) as we enter into each new week of planning with prayer, seeking the Holy Spirit’s leading and direction for each service.  We pray and strive for the Word of God (Biblically informed) and the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Gospel-wrought) shapes all practices within our services.

We pray each church attender faces the reality of our standing under the Law of God, and that we are constantly reminded of our need for Christ’s redeeming work in our lives.  As we face the law, we confess our standing before God and are reminded throughout Scriptures that Jesus Christ came to seek and to save the lost (Luke 19:10) but He does not leave us dead in our trespasses and sins (Eph. 2:4-10)!

This good news of Jesus Christ is presented to the church body within our services through a consistent liturgy, which includes:

  1. Adoration (recognition of God's greatness and grace)
  2. Confession (acknowledgement of our sin and need for grace)
  3. Assurance (affirmation of God's provision of grace)
  4. Thanksgiving (expression of praise and thanks for God's grace)
  5. Offerings (bringing our tithe to God out of response to His goodness)
  6. Petition and Intercession     (expression of dependence on God's grace)
  7. Instruction (acquiring the knowledge to grow in grace)
  8. Communion/Fellowship       (celebrating the grace of union with Christ and his people)
  9. Benediction or Blessing       (living for and in the light of God's grace)

Abiding Savior allows for inclusion among our church body to use the musical and technical gifts unto the Lord as a thanksgiving offering as well as to edify the church body (congregational). 

As the church body is fed a healthy liturgy, we are sent out on a mission (missional) in Jesus’ name to fulfill the great commission in every aspect of our lives as we leave the sanctuary each week.  We leave with a reminder of God’s grace to us in that we are adopted as children of the King, and are sent out to reach those who have yet to know God in a personal way through His son Jesus Christ.
