Pilgrim exists to share the love of Christ in serving, learning, and telling. Jesus is the key to fullness of life now and forever. We enjoy many blessings in life, but experiences would tell all of us that there are no shortage of challenges, difficulties, and problems . A rather blunt way to put it is things are just messed up. Sin—rebellion against God—is the root cause. It has affected us all and all creation bears its mark. The good news is Jesus. For those who look to Jesus in faith there is meaning, direction, fullness of life here and now and a future of joy with Him that will be indescribable in its goodness. God the Son became one of us, Jesus, to rescue us from the tentacles of sin. His work completed, a work that included His life, His death, and His resurrection, He has ascended to the right hand of God the Father. He rules all for the sake of His body (the church—all who look to Him in faith). One day He returns to establish a new heaven and earth.
God the Holy Spirit makes all this known to us in the pages of the Bible, the Holy Scriptures. We hold the Scriptures as God’s inspired, inerrant, even infallible word to us. It is from the Scriptures that we learn God to be God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. It is also from the Scriptures that we learn of God’s ongoing giving of His grace to us in Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
