Holy Cross Lutheran Church (Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod) was established in 1960 in the city of Warren and is now a congregation of over 300 baptized children of God
We are by no means perfect people. We believe that by our very nature we are sinful human beings who live contrary to the Word and will of God. We sin by what we think, what we say, and what we do. The wages of sin is death. But thanks be to God we have the victory in our risen and coming again Savior, Jesus Christ. He came into our world to give his life as a sacrifice on the cross to atone for our sin, bring us forgiveness, reconcile us to the God and bless us with an everlasting relationship with himself. Living under that forgiveness, and with God’s help, we are aiming our lives toward Christ that we might better know and understand our loving Father and become more like him. Sharing a common faith in our Savior, we walk the journey of faith together as a congregation so that we might encourage each other, and all the more as we see the Day approaching. As with St. Paul, we proclaim Christ crucified on the cross for our sins so that we might receive the free gift of eternal life and the forgiveness of our sins. Because God first loved us, we seek to love. We love God and others when we obey his commands to proclaim the good news to all creation and reclaim lost lives for Christ. We want the whole world to share in the joy and gladness of knowing God personally and living in the sure and certain hope of everlasting life with him.
We subscribe to the Lutheran Confessions including the three historical creeds of the Christian Church: The Apostle’s Creed, The Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed.
We commend the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod’s work on these cultural issues:
