OUR FAITH & LIFE AT ULU
We are Biblical
"These things are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God." - St. John 20:19
The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the source of our faith and life. The Only True and Living God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit has given us His Word. The Bible is the pure, clear fountain of truth for our congregation and the whole world. God uses His Word to call us together and gives us new life to live in faith toward Him and fervent love toward one another. We are committed to receiving all that our Lord Jesus Christ has taught us in His Word and to living by faith alone in Him and His promises.
We are Confessional
"I will also speak of your testimonies before kings and shall not be put to shame." - Psalm 119:46
Having received the Word of God, we gladly confess it in our congregation and our community. We subscribe to the Book of Concord, the Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, teaching the same doctrine God has given to us in His Word. We are dedicated to the task of making new disciples through teaching and Holy Baptism both in our community and around the world so that all might confess that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father.
We are Liturgical
"Do this as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me" - 1 Corinthians 11:25
University Lutheran is a congregation formed by the Triune God in Baptism and the preaching of the Word. We gather around Scripture and the Body and Blood of Christ, singing and praying the sure Words given to us by God. Through the Church, Jesus Christ seeks to draw all people to Himself, forgiving their sins by his death on the cross and sanctifying them for a life of love for God and service to their neighbors. The way we pray and what we pray in the Services of God's House are drawn from the Word of God and centered in the forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ. We use the finest music the Church has given to us in both liturgy and hymns.
We are Lutheran
"Remember your congregation, which you have purchased of old, which you have redeemed to be the tribe of your heritage!" - Psalm 74:2
Our congregation was founded in 1945 by those passionate about outreach to the campus of Purdue University. We give thanks to God for His faithfulness to the generations who have received His Word and Sacraments here. We remain dedicated to Lutheran doctrine drawn from the Scriptures and to teaching and confessing it in our life together as God's people.
