About the Lutheran Church

The Lutheran churches are the inheritors of more than five centuries of reformation begun in Europe by Martin Luther to protest abuses that had developed in the early church. Luther’s wish in his “protestant reformation” was to instill in all believers an understanding of the free gift of God’s grace as a way to salvation, and of the necessity for members of his “reformed” church to bring a Christian spirit into their daily lives – to become, as it were, a “priesthood of all believers.” Lutherans have been in America for a full century before our Revolution and today number 9 million in the United States and 70 million worldwide.

About St. Timothy’s Church

St. Timothy Lutheran Church is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, one of the largest Christian denominations in America, with about 4 million members in nearly 10,000 congregations across the United States, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

We are heirs both to the 15th century reforms of Martin Luther and nearly twenty-one centuries of Christian history. We are a church deeply rooted in Scripture, as well as the Nicene, Apostles’, and Athanasian Creeds, and the Lutheran Confessions. We share a living, daring confidence in God’s grace – the love of God freely given.

We confess that the church is the Body of Christ, and that the church’s members are called, gathered, enlightened, and sanctified by the Holy Spirit. We gather weekly to hear the Word of God proclaimed and assemble around the altar to receive the body and blood of Christ in the Sacrament of Holy Communion.

St. Timothy has served this community since 1957. In addition to our gathering for worship each week, we offer Christian education for all ages, and participate in a wide variety of service programs and projects serving Wayne and the wider community. We invite you to join our fellowship of faith, regardless of your age, race, gender, or life experience. There is a place for you here!
