Proclaiming Christ Crucified, Risen, and Coming Again, Through the Gospel in Word and Sacraments
We are a Lutheran mission in the St. Louis Metro–East. Christ Savior Lutheran is an extension ministry of Martin Luther Evangelical Lutheran Church in St. Louis, Missouri to better serve the spiritual needs of people in the southern Illinois area. Our congregation consists of people just like you—everyday residents in the Metro–East. In a time of change and moral chaos, God’s Word offers us His timeless, unchanging truth. In a time of uncertainty and fear, God’s love and mercy in Christ give us sure and certain hope. Come join us and experience God’s love for you!
We preach Law and Gospel, convicting of sin, leading to repentance, and offering forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation. We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God, and that it is clear, sufficient, and powerful to create faith in our hearts.
As a confessional Lutheran Church and member of WELS, we believe, teach, and confess according to Luther’s Small Catechism, the historic Christian creeds, and the Lutheran Confessions contained in the Book of Concord because they are a faithful and true exposition of the Word of God.
Our time together is centered in the Divine Service as we gather together as God’s people to confess our sins and receive absolution, receive God’s gifts of Word and Sacraments, offer up prayers and petitions, and respond in thanksgiving and praise.
We are pleased to have a highly capable American Sign Language interpreter to help the deaf and hearing impaired participate in the proclamation of the Word of God, sacraments, liturgy, sermon, prayers, and hymns.
