What We Believe

 

GOD…

..revealed Himself as three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All three Persons participated in the creation of the world. It is the Father, the First Person of the Triune God, Who continues to care and provide for people. Lutheran Christians say, “All this He does only out of fatherly, divine goodness and mercy.” It is also the Father’s passion that all people would be saved from sin through Jesus Christ, His Son.

JESUS CHRIST…

Jesus Christ……is God the Son, the Second Person of the Triune God. He is eternally true God. In His birth and death He was also true man, but without sin. By His death on the cross, He took upon Himself the punishment for sin that was due all people. By His Easter Resurrection He gained the victory over sin and death that is shared with all who believe in Him. At His Second Coming, all history will have its completion in Him.

THE HOLY SPIRIT…

The Holy Spirit…is the Third Person of the Triune God. He is the One Who builds faith, hope, and love into the lives of people as they hear God’s Word and come to know Jesus Christ in a profound, personal way. The Holy Spirit convicts people of their sin. He assures people that their sins are forgiven. He gathers people into the Church. He gives gifts to empower people for Christian witness and service. As people continue to hear, read, study, trust, and obey God’s Word, He brings them to spiritual maturity.

THE BIBLE….

..is written that we might believe in Jesus Christ as our personal Savior and Lord. It speaks powerfully to the forgiveness of sins which is found in Him alone. It teaches what it means to live a life of love toward God and others, as well as a life of integrity and purpose concerning God’s design for each of us. It was written by men as they were directed by God’s Holy Spirit, and so it is timeless truth without error or contradiction..
