Mountain View is a church of caring Christians who enjoy working together to expand the Kingdom of God in our individual lives and the life of our communities. We take Jesus' words seriously when he commanded us "to make disciples of all nations." We're a multi-generational church. The kids keep our energy level high. The years of experience our grandparents provide help us take the long view.
As a Lutheran church, we're part of the larger Lutheran body through The American Association of Lutheran Churches (TAALC), a Bible-based and confessional denomination.
**The Lutheran Church subscribes unconditionally to the 1580 Book of Concord as "a true and unadulterated statement and exposition of the Word of God." The Book of Concord consists of ten documents:
1. The Apostles Creed (3rd Century)
2. The Nicene Creed (325 AD)
3. The Athanasian Creed
4. The Augsburg Confession (Philip Melanchthon, 1530)
5. The Apology (Defense) of the Augsburg Confession (Philip Melanchthon, 1531)
6. The Small Catechism (Martin Luther, 1529)
7. The Large Catechism (Martin Luther, 1529)
8. The Smalcald Articles (Martin Luther, 1537)
9. The Treatise on the Power and the Primacy of the Pope (Philip Melanchthon, 1537)
10. The Formula of Concord (1577)
