- We believe in God, the
Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth
in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy
Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was
crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day
he rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the
right hand of God, the Father Almighty. From thence he will come to
judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the
holy Christian church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of
sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
- We believe the
sixty-six books of the
Holy Bible are the inerrant word of God written under the inspiration
of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that there is one true God. He has revealed Himself as three
persons--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--yet one divine essence.
The universal Christian faith is rightly confessed in the
Apostles', Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds.
- We believe God has come to us in the person
of the eternal son, Jesus Christ. Jesus is both true man and true God,
and He lived to fulfill God's law for us, died on the cross to atone
for our sins, and physically rose from the dead to demonstrate His
victory over sin, death, and the devil.
- We believe that there is no way to know God
or to have a right relationship with Him apart from faith in Jesus.
- We believe that faith in Jesus is a gift
from God, given by the power of the Holy Spirit.
- We believe that God creates faith and
forgives sins through His Word and through the sacrament of Holy
Baptism. For believers, He sustains their faith and gives the
assurance of the forgiveness of sins through Holy Communion, wherein He
feeds us with His true body and blood given along with the bread and
- We believe Christians are called to love,
honor, and obey God and to love and care for our neighbor.
This is accomplished through the many and various gifts that
God has given to His people, but chiefly through faith in Jesus for
believe, teach, and confess that the teachings of the Lutheran Church
as found in the Book of Concord (published in 1580) are a faithful and
true explanation of what is contained in Holy Scripture, and because
they are a faithful explanation we adhere to them.
