Welcome

Welcome to the Web home of the family of faith known as Peace Lutheran Church in Kansas City, Missouri. We invite you to come worship with us on Sunday mornings, and want you to consider yourself among friends who care. We hope that you will visit us soon and rejoice with us in the message of the Gospel -- "God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16) -

 

We believe the Bible is the inspired and unerring word of God and the only source of the instruction for doctrine and practice.

  • That there is only one true God: The Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Three persons in one divine being,
  • That we all are sinners and cannot be saved by our deeds.
  • That we all are saved only through faith in Jesus Christ.
  • That the Christian Faith expressed itself in a life of dedication in worship, love and service to God and Others.
  • That the Christian seeks to grow in Christian knowledge and faith through the use of the Bible and Sacraments of Holy Baptism and the Lord's Supper.

The Bible will never change, as God never changes. His love and salvation is complete and perfect. You can find comfort and peace in that. Our church maintains and preaches solid Bible based, Christ centered doctrine. We correct each other in making sure our hymns, liturgy, and teachings stand by the scripture. Our ministers go through a lot of training; 4 years of college and 4 years of Seminary to be ordained. They do not go through a 6 week course on the internet and get accepted to marry people in any church. Did you know that each seminary student is required to have class in Greek and Hebrew for the sole purpose to interpret the original scriptures? The structure is strict, and each pastor has their own gifts and qualities. But in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, You can be assured that the minister is grounded in the teachings. We accept and preach the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century.

The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases:

  • Sola Gratia - Grace Alone

God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.

  • Sola Fide - Faith Alone

By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.

  • Sola Scriptura - Scripture Alone

The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.

Please consider coming to our church. We love and accept all kinds of people. We want to meet new people and help them with their spiritual growth in Jesus Christ. Those having trouble understanding, coping, are sick, or in need of friends; please check us out. We are here to pray with, and for you, help you serve your Savior, and grow in Christ. We are all sinners in God's eyes and Jesus came to save sinners.

The righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:22-23.

 

Yours in Christ,

Pastor David Rolf

    Sunday Bible Study – 9:45 AM

    STUDY OF BOOK OF PROVERBS

    The Book of Proverbs provides profound insights and exceptional wisdom on how to live a happy and peaceful life, by honoring and respecting God as all-good and all-powerful.  Proverbs was mainly written by “Solomon the son of David, king of Israel. most famous for his wisdom. In 1 Kings he sacrificed to God, and God later appeared to him in a dream, asking what Solomon wanted from God. Solomon asked for wisdom. Pleased, God personally answered Solomon's prayer, promising him great wisdom because he did not ask for self-serving rewards like long life or the death of his enemies. A popular opinion is that Solomon was writing to his son, which makes sense considering the frequent repetition of “my son”.  Proverbs “is addressed to gullible youths (Prov 1:4) and wise children (Prov 1:5, 8) to enable them to attain wisdom and be safeguarded against the world-and-life views of the impious. Proverbs is a book full of Godly practical wisdom for anyone, at any age, who is willing to learn.

    Wednesday Bible Study – 4:00 PM

    STUDY OF THE BOOK OF 1 & 2 Chronicles

    The books of 1 and 2 Chronicles recount the history of the people of Israel from the death of King Saul to after the time of exile in Babylon, including mentioning the decree of Cyrus allowing God’s people to return to the land and build a temple (2 Car. 36:22-23). Likely written between 450 and 425 BC, 1 and 2 Chronicles includes many lists of genealogies.  Ezra the priest and scribe is generally considered the author of 1 and 2 Chronicles. The Babylonian Talmud identifies Ezra by name as the author of these writings. Further, the events of 1 and 2 Chronicles lead up to the events of Ezra and Nehemiah. In short, the author of the Chronicles showed a despairing people that they had a powerful, faithful God who would strengthen them to rebuild the temple and the city.
