Welcome to the website for Our Saviour's Lutheran Church. We have been in central Phoenix for 60 years and are actively pursuing God's work for our community here and now. We believe that Jesus loves every one of us and wants us to share his love with others in intentional ways.
Please contact me if you would like to hear more about Lutherans, Our Saviour's, or Jesus' love for you!
Peace in Christ,
Pastor Karn S. Carroll
Our Sacred Story
The Bible. Our sacred scriptures. The story of God and God’s people. The most popular book of all times, and the most controversial. Controversial because it often gets misused, misunderstood or misinterpreted.
This month we celebrated Reformation. It was a time in the history of Christianity when Martin Luther challenged unfaithful trends and traditions and fought to get back to the core of the Gospel message. It was within the pages of scriptures that Luther discovered works had nothing to do with his salvation- it was all grace. Because the Bible helped him understand how Jesus changed his life, he worked tirelessly in exile translating the Bible from its original languages of Hebrew and Greek into the common German so people could read it for themselves.
So do you? Do you take the time to read your Bible? Really read it for yourself, not commentaries, or books about the bible or listen to podcasts or sermons about the bible; really read it? This month immerse yourselves in the Gospels that tell us about Jesus. Read Paul’s letters to the early believers for encouragement. Dig into Genesis and delight in the stories of your childhood, but now look at them through adult eyes.
It is only when we know our sacred story can it not be misused against us. For it is through our holy scriptures we discover God’s love and grace for us.
Peace in Christ,
