As God’s people, gathered in Jesus’ name, we believe that God is very real and very present in our midst. We believe that in the Bible God has sent us a declaration of His love and care for us and all that He has made. We believe that God really wants to be in our lives and bless us. He uses the sacrament of Baptism to bring us into His family and comes to be really present in our lives through the sacrament of Holy Communion. We believe that the Designer of the entire universe continues to care for us and gives us real wisdom and hope by the Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus is God's Son who came to live among us. He really rose from the dead and so has the power to give us an eternal life with Him. We believe that none of us deserves this gift, but God wants to give it to everyone, because of Jesus’ sacrifice of Himself on the cross. We join to honor this amazing God and to celebrate His presence among us in our worship, believing that God really hears our prayer. It is in God that we find strength and guidance for the decisions and difficulties of life.
WE HOLD TO THE FAITH OF THE ANCIENT CHURCH, that the great mystery of God has been revealed
WE BELIEVE IN ONE GOD IN THREE PERSONS, the Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier.
WE BELIEVE THAT GOD THE FATHER IS THE SOURCE OF ALL THINGS, the Designer and Creator of everything. He is the Good Giver of all that we need.
WE BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST, GOD’S SON, IS OUR SAVIOR AND LORD. Through His virgin birth, sinless life, and sacrificial death, Jesus has purchased our redemption, and He has won for us forgiveness of sins, freedom from the power of sin, release from its burden, and a newness of life that is now ours on into eternal life.
WE BELIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT CALLS US to turn away from what is wrong, to find trust and confidence that God’s will for us is to lead us in lives of goodness and integrity.
WE BELIEVE THE BIBLE TO BE THE INSPIRED WORD OF GOD and the infallible authority in all matters of faith and life. We believe that the Bible proclaims the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.
WE ACCEPT THE ECUMENICAL CREEDS, THE APOSTOLIC, THE NICENE, AND THE ATHANASIAN, AS TRUE DECLARATIONS OF FAITH, and we are guided by the insights of the 15th century Reformers as found in the “Unaltered Augsburg Confession” and “Luther’s Small Catechism.”
WE BELIEVE THAT THE WORLD GOD MADE WAS BROKEN BY SIN and we human beings are in need of restoration and repair. In Christ Jesus we are remade in the Image of God.
WE BELIEVE THAT THE ONLY WAY TO SALVATION IS THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.
WE BELIEVE THAT BAPTISM UNITES US WITH CHRIST in His death, burial, and resurrection for the living of a new life that starts with the forgiveness of all our sin.
WE BELIEVE THAT IN HOLY COMMUNION WE RECEIVE THE BODY AND BLOOD OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST and are united with Him and that God is with us.
WE BELIEVE THAT THE CHURCH IS THE BODY OF CHRIST with Jesus Christ as the Head. Thus we seek His Lordship and guidance in all things.
WE BELIEVE IN CHRIST’S SECOND COMING and in the resurrection of believers to eternal life and of unbelievers to eternal punishment.
