"People are wont to say that the differences between the churches in their teaching of the Lord's Supper arise from their different 'interpretations' of the words of institution. This is not a precise statement. The truth is that Luther does not 'interpret' the words of institution at all, but takes them as they read. The Roman and Reformed teachings, however, rest on extensive and copious 'interpretation' of the words of institution."
-Francis Pieper, Christian Dogmatics, vol. 3, p. 337

Our Savior Lutheran Church, Pagosa Springs, is a member congregation of the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) and is committed to the doctrine of the Lutheran Church as presented in The Book of Concord. What this means is that we are thoroughly committed to everything the Bible teaches. We are a congregation uniquely devoted to liturgical worship, to catechesis (Christian education), and to the centrality of the Holy Communion and other Sacraments in the life of the Christian.
