About Us


The name of our congregation is The Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Advent of West Lawn, Pennsylvania, also known as Advent Lutheran Church.

Our congregation confesses the Triune God -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Our congregation confesses Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. Jesus Christ is the Word of God incarnate, through whom everything was made and through whose life, death, and resurrection God fashions a new creation.

Our congregation accepts the canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of its proclamation, faith, and life.

Our congregation accepts the Apostles', Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds as true declarations of the faith of the congregation.

Our congregation confesses the Gospel, recorded in the Holy Scriptures and confessed in the ecumenical deeds and Lutheran confessional writings, as the power of God to create and sustain the Church for God's mission in the world.

Advent Lutheran Church is a congregation of the The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America,® and of the ELCA's Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod. Please note that by clicking on the ELCA or Northeastern Pennsylvania Synod links, you will leave Advent's web site.
