Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, Lubbock, TexasWe are grateful that God has brought you to our website today and we invite you to join us in worship this Sunday. Rediscover the Sabbath and hear anew Jesus’ gracious words.

Gloria Dei” or “Glory to God”, the name this congregation chose for itself, is not only a name but a way of life. Please join us for worship and all activities at Gloria Dei.

We bring glory to God through our prayer, praise and thanksgiving.

We bring glory to God when we encourage one another and when we serve as living examples of love to one another.

We bring glory to God when we spread the Good News of the Kingdom of God and follow Jesus' command to make disciples of all nations.

Please join us for worship and all activities at Gloria Dei.

"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers".

The World’s Greatest Churches presents stunning masterpieces of architecture and art. But artistic stature is only one measure of the significance of the great Christian churches. In their essential religious role, the buildings themselves instruct, edify, and inspire the communities that worship in them, using iconography, symbolism, and the language of architecture as ultimate expressions of faith.

We will study how widely differing cultures have adapted the concept and building type of a church to their own contexts and experience. The goal of this course is to understand the architecture, art, and theology of some of the world’s most beautiful buildings, as they express Christian spirituality across an astounding range of cultures and periods. Join us in discovering these architectural masterworks that rank among the most revered, most beloved, and most iconic buildings of world civilization.

Come join us.
