We believe in the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God as given to us within the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Scriptures.
We believe that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior, that he was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, and born of the virgin Mary. We believe that he lived on the earth, taught and did the work that his Father in Heaven sent him to do, he did many miracles and healed many people, the greatest miracle is that he faced ridicule and judgment, was condemned, and was crucified. He died, but that was not the end. On that cross he forgave a condemned man next to him and promised him eternal life, that promise he made to us and upon that cross he took our sin. In his death we have been raised in life just as Christ did not stay dead in our sin, but he rose three days having freed us from sin. For those of us who believe, we receive the promise of eternal life with him.
We are called as Christians to the Great Commission (Matthew 18:19-20).
We believe in the Sola’s of our faith – Sola Fide, Sola Gratia, Sola Scriptura (faith alone, grace alone, the Word of God alone).
We are a sacramental faith believing in two sacraments – Holy Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (the Sacrament of the Altar).
At the Lord’s Supper we celebrate the real presence of Christ as revealed in the Word when Christ says, “This is my body” and “This is my blood” as well as “Given and shed for you for the forgiveness of sin”. We believe that we partake of Christ’s true body and blood because he said, “This is my body” and “This is my blood.” We hold this as true and not as a symbol but as a truth revealed to us through our Lord Jesus Christ’s own words and as Martin Luther defended in Marburg.
We hold that marriage is a sacred union between one man and one woman as given within the Word of God in creation and though it is in a fallen state and the true state as meant in the beginning is not as it was first meant we see it as something which we as a church hold to preserve and support men and women to uphold their vows and seek to live in union as a dim reflection of the glorious union that our Lord desires to have with Him.
We confess the three ecumenical Creeds – The Apostles, The Nicene, and the Athanasian.
We believe in the unaltered Augsburg Confession and it’s Apology and that is the confession to which we hold.
We are a part of Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ and faithfully seek to be the Christian church in our community as well as being a part of the mission of the faith both near and far.
