WHAT IS CHURCH?

The Augsburg Confession

"The church is the assembly of saints in which the Gospel is taught purely and sacraments are administered rightly."  - Article VII

What is Gospel?

Martin Luther

The gospel is a story about Christ,  God’s and David’s son, who died and was raised, and is established as Lord. This is the gospel in a nutshell.

Who Is God?

The Augsburg Confession

"... there is one divine essence, which is called and which is God, eternal, incorporeal, indivisible, of infinite power, wisdom, and goodness, the maker and preserver of all things, visible and invisible. Yet there are three persons, of the same essence and power, who are also co-eternal: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit." - Article I, God

What is Worship?

The Augsburg Confession

"In order that we may obtain this faith, the ministry of teaching the Gospel and administering the sacraments was instituted. For through the Word and the sacraments, as through instruments, the Holy Spirit is given, and the Holy Spirit produces faith, where and when it pleases God, in those who hear the Gospel." - Article V, The Ministry of the Church

A brief history of Resurrection

The first Lutheran service “in Cambridge” of what would become Resurrection Lutheran Church was held at St Michael’s Church on Trinity Street. But, in reality, the congregation first gathered on Easter Sunday 1958 at RAF Lakenheath – and so the name Resurrection is most befitting. However, the name wasn’t applied until later in the congregation’s history for by Easter Sunday 1960 it was being called the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Cambridge. Rev. Norman Nagel conducted that inaugural service in Lakenheath with 22 attending and 13 receiving Communion. As word of the Lutheran services began to spread about, attendance started to climb and it was soon necessary to hold a second service every month.  This second service in the month was first held in Cambridge on Reformation Day 1958 with 98 people attending. In the early 80's and for some time after Resurrection twinned with Redeemer Lutheran Church in Harlow. In the early 2000's Resurrection incorporated what would become Ascension Lutheran Church. More recently, about 10 years ago, Resurrection started the Oxford Lutheran Mission which meets three times per month. When Resurrection is used by the Westfield House community our church is called The Chapel of St Titus. Resurrection is also home to the Evangelical Lutheran Church of England’s internet radio station Lutheran Radio UK. To our risen Lord Jesus be all glory!

What we believe

Let us, then, learn well the First Commandment, that we may see how God will tolerate no overconfidence nor any trust in any other object. We will see how He requires nothing greater from us than confidence from the heart for everything good. Then we may live right and straightforward and use all the blessings that God gives ...Each person may do this in his calling, according to God's order, and without allowing any of these things to be his lord or idol. ...where the heart is rightly set toward God and this commandment is observed, all the other commandments follow.
