Welcome to the Web home of the family of faith known as Peace Lutheran Church in Kansas City, Missouri.   We invite you to come worship with us on Sunday mornings, and want you to consider yourself among friends who care.  We hope that you will visit us soon and rejoice with us in the message of the Gospel -- "God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life" (John 3:16) -

Our Mission is to:               

Equip and Encourage Christ's Followers, to Grow in Faith, Share their Faith, and Live Out their Faith.

We believe the Bible is the inspired and unerring word of God and the only source of the instruction for doctrine and practice.

  • That there is only one true God: The Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Three persons in one divine being,

  • That we all are sinners and cannot be saved by our deeds.

  • That we all are saved only through faith in Jesus Christ.

  • That the Christian Faith expressed itself in a life of dedication in worship, love and service to God and Others.

  • That the Christian seeks to grow in Christian knowledge and faith through the use of the Bible and Sacraments of Holy Baptism and the Lord's Supper.

The Bible will never change, as God never changes. His love and salvation is complete and perfect.  You can find comfort and peace in that.  Our church maintains and preaches solid Bible based, Christ centered doctrine. We correct each other in making sure our hymns, liturgy, and teachings stand by the scripture. Our ministers go through a lot of training; 4 years of college and 4 years of Seminary to be ordained.  They do not go through a 6 week course on the internet and get accepted to marry people in any church.  Did you know that each seminary student is required to have class in Greek and Hebrew for the sole purpose to interpret the original scriptures? The structure is strict, and each pastor has their own gifts and qualities. But in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, You can be assured that the minister is grounded in the teachings. We accept and preach the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century.

The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases:

  • Sola Gratia - Grace Alone

    God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.

  • Sola Fide - Faith Alone

    By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.

  • Sola Scriptura - Scripture Alone

    The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.

Please consider coming to our church. We love and accept all kinds of people.  We want to meet new people and help them with their spiritual growth in Jesus Christ.  Those having trouble understanding, coping, are sick, or in need of friends; please check us out. We are here to pray with, and for you, help you serve your Savior, and grow in Christ. We are all sinners in God's eyes and Jesus came to save sinners.

The righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction:  for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.  Romans 3:22-23.


Yours in Christ,

Pastor David Rolf

Lenten Theme

The Fruit of the Spirit

The nine virtues called the fruit of the Spirit. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.

We “glory in the Cross” as we walk by the Spirit and influence the fruit in the lives of believers. Acting under the influence of the Holy Spirit, the fruit is produced in the life of a Christian.

To be spiritually mature is to show the fruit of the Spirit of Christ in our lives.  This is an innovative approach to the Lenten season. Each service will cover one fruit of the Spirit. You will want to come to all services to hear Pastor teach and encourage us to live and walk in the Spirit, and how this theme relates to Jesus Christ and His Passion.
