Confessional Identity

Epiphany Lutheran Church is a congregation of the English District of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod (LCMS). We hold the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the inspired and inerrant Word of God and the only rule and norm for doctrine and practice. We are a confessional Lutheran congregation, which means that we subscribe without reservation to the confessional documents of the Evangelical Lutheran Church contained in the Book of Concord of 1580. These are the three ecumenical creeds (the Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds), the Unaltered Augsburg Confession (1530), the Apology of the Augsburg Confession (1531), the Smalcald Articles (1537), The Treatise on the Power and Primacy of the Pope (1537) Luther’s Small and Large Catechisms (1529), and the Formula of Concord (1577 – both the Epitome and the Solid Declaration). You can read these confessional writings at www.bookofconcord.org.

Family Oriented

Epiphany is a busy congregation with regular activities for our families. Events include our chili cook-off, church picnic, Vacation Bible School, Mother-Daughter Banquet, and youth group activities, family movie nights and our annual Whitecaps outing.

Mission Minded

Epiphany has a heart for Missions. Ten percent of all offerings are dedicated to local, national, and international mission projects. We give regularly to Project Hope of Allegan County and fund a monthly food truck giving groceries to needy families. Flexibility in our budget allows emergency funding for sudden crises like Katrina relief or care packages to soldiers. We are a local congregation with an eye to our role in God’s world.
