Our Statement of Faith

    As Lutherans, we subscribe to the Lutheran Confessions because they agree with the Bible. They include the creeds of the Christian Church, namely; the Nicene, Apostles’, and Athanasian – all of which confess God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and Jesus Christ as the only Lord and Savior. The Holy Scriptures are the basis and authority for all matters of faith and life and are the inspired and inerrant Word of God. The Bible teaches that Jesus Christ is both true God and true man, who was virgin born, and who suffered, died and rose again for our justification. We believe that we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus’ death and resurrection for us. The Holy Spirit leads us to confess Jesus Christ as our Lord and nourishes us in this faith relationship through the Word and the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. The Christian life is a daily relationship with God of repentance, faith, and forgiveness, empowering us to serve God in our daily life by caring for one another and for the world around us.
