As a Lutheran Congregation, we affirm to follow the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions. As a congregation rooted in such norms, we have chosen to affiliate ourselves with the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
When our synod follows the norms of Scripture and the Confessions, we will fully and wholeheartedly support it–as our synod’s constitution itself says we will do in Articles II and VI. This is not to say that our synod is not struggling in many areas to be faithful.
If Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church were not committed to believe and practice according the Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions, we would not belong to a church body that professes to the same.
