Two truths anchor Christ in the hearts and minds of His people: who they are and who He is. Each of us by conception and birth are sinful sinners who sin sins. Our desire from the beginning of life was to rebel against the one true God and instead follow our hearts and to believe in ourselves.
We are poor, miserable sinners.
Who is Christ? He is our Savior who shed His holy, precious blood on the cross to atone for the sin of every last sinner of this evil world. He then sends His Holy Spirit to deliver that His precious blood and water and word to sinners through Communion, Baptism, and Preaching. Through these means of grace He takes us, the unlovable, and makes us His own and unites Himself to us.
Christ is our merciful Savior.
Here at Gethsemane you will find numerous opportunities to be united to our Lord through His Word and Sacraments. We would like to invite you to visit our church today. Pastor Boehringer is glad to meet you.
We are for the most part transplants from other parts of the country, who have made the Quad Cities our home. If you're new to the area, come and meet us!
