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 August 31, 2014

Matthew 16:21-28

Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and undergo great suffering at the hands of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and on the third day be raised. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying, "God forbid it, Lord! This must never happen to you." But he turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; for you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things."

Then Jesus told his disciples, "If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit them if they gain the whole world but forfeit their life? Or what will they give in return for their life?

"For the Son of Man is to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay everyone for what has been done. Truly I tell you, there are some standing here who will not taste death before they see the Son of Man coming in his kingdom."

El Evangelio de 31 de Agosto, 2014

San Mateo 16:21-28

Jesús comenzó a explicar a sus discípulos que él tendría que ir a Jerusalén, y que los ancianos, los jefes de los sacerdotes y los maestros de la ley lo harían sufrir mucho. Les dijo que lo iban a matar, pero que al tercer día resucitaría. Entonces Pedro lo llevó aparte y comenzó a reprenderlo, diciendo: —¡Dios no lo quiera, Señor! ¡Esto no te puede pasar!

Pero Jesús se volvió y le dijo a Pedro: —¡Apártate de mí, Satanás, pues eres un tropiezo para mí! Tú no ves las cosas como las ve Dios, sino como las ven los hombres.

Luego Jesús dijo a sus discípulos: —Si alguno quiere ser discípulo mío, olvídese de sí mismo, cargue con su cruz y sígame. Porque el que quiera salvar su vida, la perderá; pero el que pierda la vida por causa mía, la encontrará.

¿De qué le sirve al hombre ganar el mundo entero, si pierde la vida? ¿O cuánto podrá pagar el hombre por su vida? Porque el Hijo del hombre va a venir con la gloria de su Padre y con sus ángeles, y entonces recompensará a cada uno conforme a lo que haya hecho. Les aseguro que algunos de los que están aquí presentes no morirán hasta que vean al Hijo del hombre venir a reinar.
