What We Believe

IMG_2942We believe, teach, and confess….

That there is one God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – as confessed within the Scriptures and the three ecumenical creeds (Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian).

That all people are born in sin and that we are unable to please God by our own reason or strength, and that forgiveness of sin is only given through the grace of God in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

That Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, who suffered for the sins of the world on the cross and was raised on the third day, Easter, the day of resurrection.

That the Holy Spirit within the church calls, gathers, and grants us faith in Jesus comes by the proclamation of the Word, in the forgiveness of sins given in Absolution, in the washing of Holy Baptism, and in the body and blood of Jesus given in the Lord’s Supper.

IMG_2943That the Church is the congregation of people who believe in Jesus Christ gathered around God’s Word and Sacraments, and that our name “Lutheran” is as those who are heirs of the teaching of Martin Luther upon the foundation of being justified by faith alone, through faith alone, upon the teachings of Scriptures.

We are members of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, and that the confessions made in the Book of Concord of 1580 are a faithful a true exposition of the Word of God.
