What We Believe

We share a common faith with other Christians. We accept the Bible as the inspired Word of God and the true source of Christian love, guidance and doctrine. It is there that we learn of the saving Word of God by grace in His Son, Jesus Christ.

Lutherans believe that the central teaching of the Word of God is justification by faith alone. We believe and teach that God comes to us in divine love and mercy in Jesus Christ, calling us to repentance and new life in Him. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, we are forgiven and called to live int eh freedom of God's grace. Christians are empowered to live in service to God and our neighbors, bearing witness to the coming reign of God. 

Lutheran's believe that God's Word and promise come to us through the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and the Lord's Supper. We affirm and confess the Triune God as confessed in teh Apostles', Nicene and Athanasian Creeds.

As part of Christ's Church, we are not just members but disciples. We believe that God wants us to be involved in studying and applying the Word of God to our lives.
