We Believe

That God’s love is shown in the life, death, and resurrection of his Son, Jesus Christ.
That God offers a free gift of eternal life to all to believe in Jesus Christ.
That the gift is given to all who receive it through the Holy Spirit.
That we gather for worship, study, fellowship and service as a response to God’s love for us.

Welcome to Living Savior Lutheran Church

We welcome all in the name of Jesus Christ. We are a medium sized congregation located in the heart of Fairfax Station, Virginia. There are a mix of families that have been here decades and many who are just transferring into the community. We are active in social ministries, helping our fellow neighbors as well as those in need outside of our area. With George Mason so close to our church, we support many of the outreach actives there. Below are some links for further information about us.

Living Savior Lutheran Church started in the spring of 1983. The congregation first met in individual homes in Fairfax Station. By November 1983, under the guidance of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Springfield and Pastor Heino, the congregation moved to an office building in Burke Centre. With the group rapidly growing, the congregation moved their Sunday worship to Fairview Elementary School in Burke. The congregation was young, but extremely energetic and growing quickly.

In 1985, the congregation called Pastor Fred Klein. Pastor Klein left a church in North Carolina to assume the spiritual head of a congregation without a Sanctuary. Clearly the Lord had big plans for Living Savior Lutheran Church. Shortly after Pastor Klein's arrival, the "miracle of the land" occurred, and Living Savior was blessed with over 7 acres of land on Ox Road. The land was part of a family farm, and through the support of the Missouri Synod Lutheran Church, Southeastern District, and a series of miraculous events, Living Savior was deeded the land.

Stepping out in faith, Living Savior raised over $250K and borrowed $1.6M to build a multipurpose room, several classrooms for a Preschool and Kindergarten, a playground, administrative offices, and a parking lot.

After Pastor Klein retired in August 2006, Living Savior called Pastor Andrew C. Lissy, who was serving in New Orleans, Louisiana. Pastor Lissy was installed at the second pastor of Living Savior in January 2007.

On November 14, 2010, Living Savior dedicated their long awaited sanctuary, which almost doubled the seating capacity.
