Our Beliefs

University Lutheran Chapel is centered on the person of Jesus Christ and the power of His message, His death, and His resurrection. We believe we are called to faithfully follow Him as humble disciples. We rejoice in the gift of forgiveness and eternal life found in His death and His resurrection. We are a community seeped in the ancient Christian teachings and the traditions of those who came before us. We are a member congregation of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and one of the small extremities of a much larger Church body.

We stand firmly in the reformation teaching of being saved by God’s grace, of God’s Word being the rule and norm for teaching, and of faith, not man’s actions, bringing us to God.
