Welcome! We invite you to explore this Website and learn about our unique community of faith. Each week, Christians from over thirty-five (35) nations gather to pray, sing, hear and engage Scripture, and build relationships with one another. At present, some 400 households call Our Saviour home.

In fact, our vision is “to be a home for all of God's people” and we hope that your searching may lead you to worship with us. Our clergy and lay staff are eager to answer any question you might have about our common life. Do not hesitate to call or send an email.

Again, welcome!



Gospel Lesson
for December 14, 2014

John 1:6-8,19-28

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light.

This is the testimony given by John when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?" He confessed and did not deny it, but confessed, "I am not the Messiah." And they asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the prophet?" He answered, "No." Then they said to him, "Who are you? Let us have an answer for those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?" He said, "I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, `Make straight the way of the Lord,'" as the prophet Isaiah said. Now they had been sent from the Pharisees. They asked him, "Why then are you baptizing if you are neither the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the prophet?" John answered them, "I baptize with water. Among you stands one whom you do not know, the one who is coming after me; I am not worthy to untie the thong of his sandal." This took place in Bethany across the Jordan where John was baptizing.

El Evangelio de 14 de diciembre, 2014

San Juan 1:6-8,19-28

Hubo un hombre llamado Juan, a quien Dios envió como testigo, para que diera testimonio de la luz y para que todos creyeran por lo que él decía. Juan no era la luz, sino uno enviado a dar testimonio de la luz. […]

Éste es el testimonio de Juan, cuando las autoridades judías enviaron desde Jerusalén sacerdotes y levitas a preguntarle a Juan quién era él. Y él confesó claramente: —Yo no soy el Mesías.

Le volvieron a preguntar: —¿Quién eres, pues? ¿El profeta Elías?

Juan dijo: —No lo soy.

Ellos insistieron: —Entonces, ¿eres el profeta que ha de venir?

Contestó: —No.

Le dijeron: —¿Quién eres, pues? Tenemos que llevar una respuesta a los que nos enviaron. ¿Qué nos puedes decir de ti mismo?

Juan les contestó: —Yo soy una voz que grita en el desierto: “Abran un camino derecho para el Señor”, tal como dijo el profeta Isaías.

Los que fueron enviados por los fariseos a hablar con Juan, le preguntaron: —Pues si no eres el Mesías, ni Elías ni el profeta, ¿por qué bautizas?

Juan les contestó: —Yo bautizo con agua; pero entre ustedes hay uno que no conocen y que viene después de mí. Yo ni siquiera merezco desatarle la correa de sus sandalias.

Todo esto sucedió en el lugar llamado Betania, al otro lado del río Jordán, donde Juan estaba bautizando.
