Our Beliefs

This we believe:

  • In the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  • That the Bible is the inspired infallible Word of God—the only source and norm for teaching.

  • That since the fall, man is by nature sinful and therefore has earned nothing but punishment from a holy God.

  • But that God in love sent His Son into the World to pay for the sin of all mankind and that on the cross

  • Jesus finished forever His work of redemption for us.

  • That on the third day Jesus bodily rose from the dead and later ascended into Heaven.

  • That the only way for man to receive forgiveness of sin is by faith alone in Jesus alone.

  • That faith itself is a gift of the Holy Spirit.

  • That good works necessarily flow from faith, but that works do not earn or help earn salvation.

  • The Holy Baptism is a miraculous means of God's grace by which infants also become part of God's holy family.

  • That Holy Communion, we receive with the bread and wine the true body and blood of Jesus.

  • That there is but one true church consisting of all who in heart and mind and with their lips confess Jesus as Savior and Lord.

  • That one day Jesus will come again in glory to judge both the living and the dead.
