The Wittenberg Door


Reformation Celebration 2017

Post your story!

How has your life been changed by faith in

Jesus Christ, the Word of God made Flesh?

       500 years ago, God called a German monk, named Martin Luther, to change the world by preaching with an exclusive focus on the teaching and work of Jesus Christ found in the Bible.  The result?  A renewed faith placed solely in Jesus Christ and the birth of the Protestant Reformation. 

             As part of a year-long celebration of this 500th anniversary, St. Luke’s introduces to the community a Wittenberg Door display. Not just intended to help us remember the past, the Wittenberg Door display celebrates how faith in Jesus Christ is reforming people’s lives even today.  God’s Word still has the power to change lives, hearts and minds--to worship God first and to love and serve others. 

 You are invited to post and read stories of how faith in Jesus Christ, the Word of God made flesh, has changed lives!

 The Wittenberg Door Display was made possible by the St. Luke’s Memorial Fund and through the leadership and efforts of many church members.  True to the spirit of the Reformation, the door in the display was the old St. Luke’s church door, now reformed into a work of art!

Jesus has transformed my life in many ways: out of error into truth, out of sin into righteousness and out of
death into life. His word has been a firm foundation that has shaped all of my moral and ethical principles. In a time when so many people are being led astray by a secular and godless culture, it's both comforting and crucial to build your life on the eternal truths of God's word.

At a time in my life when depression and anxiety engulfed me and all other supports failed, the Word of God stood strong.

Psalm 91:1-2 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.

2 Corinthians 12:9 "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."

Scriptures like those were life lines for me as a traversed through that uncertain season. When all else fails, the Word of God will remain.

Love the display! Powerful. Thanks.
God's Word is my source of hope, assurance.
Abiding His Word, brings spiritual freedom (John 8:28-33).
His truth leads us to Him, His will. Following Him is the essence of discipleship to Him. I am thankful for His sure and certain Word.

I have always been brought up in the church beginning as a baby---my faith has just grown with me as I have gone through my life. I know that God is always with me as I raise my four children and the challenges that come along with that. Although, I have always been involved with working with children, my faith has brought me to jobs over the last 5 years of helping to share God's love with children. I began at Valencia Presbyterian to now currently teaching at a Christian Preschool and also here at St. Luke's in the Parent's Morning Out, Parent's Night Out and Sunday nursery programs. I know that through faith and with Jesus by my side--I can overcome anything.

Jesus is the way... the gate... the door.
The replica of the Wittenberg door has been spiritually moving and meaningful to a number of us at JCPC, including me. Thank you for the blessing to this community. May the Lord continue to guide you in ministry at St. Luke's.

Over the years since I gave my life to the Lord Jesus Christ I have experienced countless examples of how God through the Holy Spirit has given me wisdom, saved me from harm, blessed me with a wonderful wife, believing children and grandchildren and poured unexpected gifts into my hand. It has made my life of 80 years meaningful and with purpose to bring others into the knowledge and saving grace of the Lord Jesus.
