A Message From The Pastor

We are very glad you’re here! Here at Shepherd of the Sierra, we come together with one heart and one mind to meet the challenges before us knowing that God is with us every day. As we praise and honor Jesus Christ, we realize that He is our Savior and Lord and nothing is impossible with Him. Because He is with us, we can’t help but show that something special must be happening in this place. As you come to worship with us, you will see our unity, and be affected by our faith, which shows itself in our joy and excitement. We have a great deal of confidence as we look to the future because of Jesus Christ. By faith we know Him, and it’s our desire to follow Him in our lives each day, and have you come to know Him too! I pray that you come and join us at Shepherd of the Sierra. It IS a place to come and meet Jesus!

What We Believe

We believe in one Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe the Father is our Creator and gave us life, and called us His own in Baptism as His children.

We believe the Son came down to earth and lived as true man and suffered, died, and rose victorious over sin, death, and Satan. By His willingness to take our place, He paid the price for our sin.

We believe the Holy Spirit walks with us and helps us grow and mature into the person God wants us to be.

We believe God’s desire for us is that we are His ambassadors to tell the world around us about Jesus Christ, their Savior.

We believe the Bible is God’s Word without error and is our guide to what God would have us do.

Who We Are

Shepherd of the Sierra is a Lutheran Church dedicated to sharing God’s word with the community around us while offering a welcoming and caring home to everyone.

About Heaven

Heaven is where God Almighty reigns for eternity. As the Bible says, it is a beautiful place of gold, crystal, and emerald. It is filled with the eternal presence of God.

After death, heaven is the eternal home to all who believe in Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. It is God’s desire that everyone would come to faith and live with Him forever there.

In heaven there is not presence of evil, only the holy presence of God. Our greatest joy, as we go there, is to sing God’s praises and worship Him as our God forever.
