Our Values and Core Beliefs
Jesus died and rose for all. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
The Bible is God's True Word. "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17
The Word and Sacraments. "For it is sufficient for the true unity of the Christian church that the Gospel be preached in conformity to and with a pure understanding of it and that the Sacraments be administered in accordance with the divine Word." Article VII, Augsburg Confession.
Good Shepherd Lutheran Church of Goleta presents an amazing CHILDREN'S CONCERT featuring some of the best-loved performers in Santa Barbara.
