Pilgrim accepts the Scriptures as the inspired and inerrant Word of God and the only rule of faith and life. Through Scripture, we learn about the marvelous gift of salvation and forgiveness that God has offered to all people through His own son's death and resurrection.
Pilgrim accepts the Lutheran Confessions, articulated in the Symbolical Books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, as found in the Book of Concord of the year 1580, are a true exposition of Holy Scripture. These Symbolic Books are the three Ecumenical Creeds (Apostles, Nicene, Athanasian), The Unaltered Augsburg Confession, The Apology (defense) of the Augsburg Confession, The Smalcald Articles, the Treatise on the Power and Primacy of the Pope, The Small Catechism of Dr. Martin Luther, The Large Catechism of Dr. Martin Luther, and The Formula of Concord.

God’s love, His forgiveness of our sins, and His gift of salvation is most clearly demonstrated in the Divine Service. In the Divine Service, God, through His undershepherds (pastors), distributes His gifts of Word and Sacrament to His people. At Pilgrim Evangelical Lutheran Church, God's people gather together for the Divine Service three times a week. These services follow the historic liturgy, published in the Lutheran Service Book (Concordia Publishing House, 2006). The historic liturgy and it's traditional practices have been passed down from the saints before us. It is nothing other than Scripture through and through, in fact, most of the liturgy is direct citations from The Holy Bible. We extend our warmest invitation to you and your family to join us:
Sundays at 8:00 a.m. - Divine Service
