Our Beliefs

As Christians, we believe that:

  • God is the Creator of all things and we are children of God.
  • In God’s great love for us God sent Jesus, God’s son, to dwell among God’s people and to redeem us from sin.
  • Through Jesus’ death and resurrection we have been granted the gift of everlasting life.
  • Christ lives among us today by the power of God’s Holy Spirit through the proclamation of God’s word and through the sacraments.
  • Christ calls us to be witnesses to the Gospel and to bring hope to the world by serving others in word and deed, including working for justice.

As Lutheran Christians, we accept the teachings of Martin Luther, a 16th century Reformer of the church. The basic theological teachings of Luther are::

  • Grace alone — we are saved by God’s boundless grace alone, not by anything we do or can earn.
  • Faith alone — our salvation is by faith, a confident trust in God’s steadfast love and abundant grace that through Jesus Christ we have forgiveness, life, and salvation.
  • Word alone — the Bible is the standard by which teachings and doctrines are to be judged.
