Welcome to Our Savior Lutheran Church Website

Our Savior Lutheran Church is a confessional congregation of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS). For over 60 years, we have taught that among God's people learning is drawn from the clear truth of God's eternal Word, the Bible . Our focus is on the cross where our savior Jesus Christ died so that we might live with him here and in eternity.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16

Located in northwest Houston, close to the corner of Tidwell and Antoine near Highway 290, Our Savior Lutheran Church offers a variety of learning and giving opportunities for Houston families. Join us for our Sunday services, Bible Studies, ministries and fellowship and experience the power of the Word.

Church News & Announcements

 A Word from God's Word . . .

3/2 - "And Jacob was left alone.  And a Man wrestled with him until the breaking of the day."  (Gen. 32:24 - ESV) Jacob was returning to his homeland, after his stay with his Uncle Laban.  He still feared his brother, Esau.  He prayed to God for protection.  That night a Man (God Himself) wrestled with Jacob.  They wrestled all night.  We don't know what conversation took place between them, except that Jacob asked God to bless him, which He did.  But a thought!  Have you ever "wrestled" with God in prayer for something that you desperately needed or wanted?
 
3/3 - "But You, O Lord, do not be far off!  O You my help, come quickly to my aid!"  (Psalm 22:19 - ESV) David was another of God's children who "wrestled"  with God in prayer.  God's own Son, Jesus, quoted the first part of verse 1 of this Psalm while hanging on the cross.  Even Jesus "wrestled" with His Father in prayer.  Something we should remember about this - even though God did not answer His Son's prayer at this time, Jesus nevertheless submitted to His Father's will.
 
3/4 - "The Lord appeared to Abram and said to him, 'I am God Almighty; walk before Me, and be blameless.'" (Gen. 17:1b - ESV)  God is always ready to answer His children's prayers in the best way for them at the time, but He also expects His children to remember Who He is, respect Him, and follow in His ways.
 
3/5 - "Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ."  (Romans 5:1 - ESV)  We must never forget that the only reason we dare approach God with any requests is because we have been justified by faith - faith in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior from sin, death, and the power of the devil.
 
3/6 - "Then Jesus answered her, 'O woman, great is your faith!  Be it done for you as you desire.'  And her daughter was healed instantly."  (Matt. 15:28 - ESV) In this story of the Canaanite woman who "wrestled" with Jesus in prayer in behalf of her daughter, Jesus answered her prayer, according to her request, and even commended her great faith.  Jesus is still willing to answer seemingly impossible prayers offered in great faith.
