About

We believe that a personal relationship with Jesus Christ calls us into relationship with others as his church. This is God’s chosen way to our salvation but also the way to an abundant present life. All baptized members of the congregation are called to this faith community as part of “the priesthood of all believers.” We all share in the wider church’s mandate from Christ himself to “preach, teach and baptize.” In doing so, we hope to grow Christ’s church, not just “our” congregation. Baptized members approve the annual budget, call pastors and other servant leaders as needed, and handle other important business matters through our church council, appointed teams, and congregational meetings. We share in all aspects of this mission, and we invite others to join us in relationship. Messiah is wheelchair accessible and welcomes people of all abilities and backgrounds. Come and grow with us!

We are located in Mechanicsville, Virginia, serving Hanover County, the greater Richmond area, and beyond. With a very warm and active membership, Messiah Lutheran Church’s mission is “To share the good news of Jesus Christ and to invite all to join us in faith, worship, and service.” 

Our growing congregation is a member of the Virginia Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) and part of a communion of churches called the Lutheran World Federation (LWF).

As our fellow child of God, we invite you to come and grow in grace with us!
