The mission of Reformation Lutheran Church is to be a loving, forgiving, concerned community of God’s people. Living under God’s Word and united in faith and worship, we seek to proclaim the good news of God’s love by reaching out to those in need, both near and far. To equip ourselves for the tasks of witness and service, we pledge ourselves to worship, learn, and offer our mutual support through prayer and Christian stewardship.

What We Believe

We are saved by the grace of God alone — not by anything we do.

Our salvation is through faith alone — a confident trust in God, who in Christ promises forgiveness, life, and salvation.

the Bible is the norm for faith and life — the true standard by which teaching and doctrines are to be judged.

What is Lutheranism?

Lutheranism is a faith tradition that is open to all, regardless of background. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is almost 5 million members strong, with nearly 10,500 congregations across the US, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands.

Rev. Jim DuMond

Rev. Jim DuMond was born in Miami, Florida. He and his wife, Alice,

have two daughters, Jennifer and Christine. After working in the business

world for 14 years, he answered a call to the ministry and entered Lutheran

Theological Southern Seminary in Columbia, S.C., and was ordained and

installed as pastor of Redeemer Lutheran Church in August of 1998.

During Pastor Jim’s years at Redeemer, he was an active member of the Gaston Clergy and Citizens Coalition and the church was involved in a lot of outreach ministries including Family Promise, Habitat for Humanity, Crisis Assistance Ministry, Cornerstone Christian Ministry, The Shelter of Gaston County, retirement home worship services and visitation, a quilting ministry, and the local Backpack Weekend food program.

As Pastor Jim continues his ministry with the people of Reformation Lutheran Church, he enjoys serving with them in the ministries of the congregation and in the surrounding communities of Greeneville and Greene County. He is involved in the local ministerial association and does everything that he can to support the schools and those ministries that help to build stronger and healthier families and that provide assistance to those needing a helping hand.

Pastor Jim believes that all Christians have been called by Christ to show forth his love and compassion for all God’s children, regardless of where they are in their faith journey. “The local congregation’s mission is to help people to hear Jesus’ word of life and to equip and encourage people to carry out the particular ministry they have been called to do in the church and community.”
