Resurrection Lutheran Church
Resurrection Lutheran Church is a member of the SELC District of the
Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod
Resurrection Lutheran Church has completed the process of application and is officially a member of the SELC District of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod. Resurrection is pleased to be a member of a Christian denomination that is well established, firm in its beliefs, and is focused on faith and mission work in daily life. The process took approximately 7 months from the formation of Malvern’s new Lutheran Church. The application for membership in the SELC District by Resurrection was accepted unanimously by the Board of Directors. The Lutheran faith dates back to 1521 when the denomination was formed by Martin Luther and his followers who called for reform in the Roman Catholic faith. Lutheranism advocates a doctrine of justification “by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone” which went against the Roman view of “faith formed by love”. The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, which dates back to 1847 when Saxon and other German immigrants established a new church body in America seeking the freedom to practice and follow confessional Lutheranism and to accept the Bible as the only source and norm for truth and salvation in life. The SELC District of the Missouri Synod stands for the Synod of Evangelical Lutheran Churches. Today the SELC spans the eastern half of the continent, with congregations in the United States and Canada. The SELC focuses on mission outreach here in the US and abroad. Resurrection Lutheran Church holds worship service Sunday mornings at 9:00 a.m. at 105 S. Reed Street, Malvern (near the square). The local community is invited to attend a worship service and enjoy the relaxed, small town atmosphere of Resurrection Lutheran Church.
