What We Believe


Shepherd of the Valley Evangelical Lutheran Church...

-believes and teaches that "All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" and as a result, "the wages of sin is death." We deserve this but, "God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life." In gratitude we live a life of love towards God and our neighbor because "he first loved us."
