Created in God’s image we embrace our differences.  We invite and welcome all as we worship and share God’s love with the community around us.

  • Worship.  Shaped by our gratitude for all that God has done and is doing for us, we glorify God through Spirit-filled worship with Word, Sacraments and music.

  • Outreach.  Because Christ first showed us love, we share that love with all who hunger in body, mind and spirit.  We have a heart for the world, seeing and responding to the need around us.

  • Education.  Grounded in Christ, we deepen our faith by asking questions that arise from scripture, our experiences and the world in which we live.  We encourage the joyous gifts of curiosity and learning in people of all ages.

  • Fellowship.  God gives us to one another to be in a relationship with one another.  We gather in many ways to build a community that loves, serves and encourages.

  • Servant Leadership.  We are called to be Christ’s light in the world.  We raise up and equip faithful leaders to be loving, honest and passionate servants.

  • Growth.  God is always doing something new.  We seek to discern God’s will and are open to taking risks and dream new possibilities for ministry.

  • Discipleship.  Empowered by the Spirit, we live out our faith proclaiming the Gospel in word and deed.  We share our time, talents and abundance serving one another and the world.

The Bible

To borrow a phrase from Luther, the Bible is “the manger in which the Word of God is laid.” While Lutherans recognize differences in the way the Bible should be studied and interpreted, it is accepted as the primary and authoritative witness to the church’s faith. Written and transcribed by many authors over a period of many centuries, the Bible bears testimony to the mighty acts of God in the lives of people and nations. In the Old Testament we find the vivid account of God’s covenant relationship to Israel. In the New Testament is found the story of God’s new covenant with all of creation in Jesus; it is the first-hand proclamation of those who lived through the events of Jesus’ life, death, and Resurrection, and is the authority for Christian faith and practice

Messiah Lutheran Church and Messiah Christian School are located at 1200 Waggoner Road in Reynoldsburg, Ohio, between Main and Broad Streets.

Our office hours are Monday – Friday 8:30 am – 4:30 pm.

Please join us for the following regularly scheduled weekly worship services on Sunday mornings at 8:00, 9:30 and 11:00 am.
