History by God's Means of Grace
​​The Church at Martin Luther's time taught wrongly that people by various means could buy or earn their salvation. In his study of the Holy Scriptures, Luther rediscovered that salvation is recieved only by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Ephesians 2:8-9). Luther explained in his writings that the Holy Spirit uses three and only three means to create and sustain faith in a believer. The three means God uses are His Word and the two sacraments, baptism and the Lord's Supper. Thus Luther explains that wherever God's Word is taught and wherever baptism and the Lord's Supper is celebrated, the church is present there.

Thus when we look at the history of a congregation of believers, the most important acts and records to celebrate are the records of how they proclaimed God's Word and celebrated the sacraments of baptism and the Lord's Supper.

In 2017 Lutherans all over the world are joining in celebrating the reformation movement that was sparked by Martin Luther and began with the posting of his "95 Theses" on the door of the Wittenburg Castle Church. May this history of Peace Evangelical Lutheran Church move all to rejoice in how Jesus has worked among us. And may it move you to join in the year-long celebration of the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran reformation.

In October 2nd, 2016, Peace Lutheran Church celebrated its 100th anniversary. May the glory, praise and thanks be to God for a century of blessings!
