What We Believe

Apostles' Creed

For 2,000 years the followers of Jesus have summed up their faith in three short paragraphs known as the Apostles’ Creed:

I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. On the third day He rose from the dead. He ascended into heaven, and is seated on the right hand of the Father. He will come again to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, and the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

Our Savior Lutheran Church is a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.

A Brief History of OSLC

In the spring of 1983, St. Paul's Lutheran Church and St. Mark's Lutheran Church of Minot met and discussed starting a new mission church in south Minot.  "South Minot Lutheran Church" first met in September 1983 in a school gymnasium.  In 1985, the church chose its new name "Our Savior Lutheran Church".

Our original building was constructed in 1986 with the help of Laborers for Christ and many of our own congregation.  The building was dedicated on September 14, 1986.

By the end of 1994, attendance had greatly increased and OSLC began holding both traditional and contemporary services.

In January of 2010, Little Hands Loving Hearts Child Development Center was started.

Following Minot's devastating flood in 2011, Hope Village was established at OSLC coordinating 9 faith-based recovery organizations, and managing 5200 volunteers from 42 states who rebuilt more than 540 flood-damaged homes.
