We Believe, Teach, and Confess…

God's Word is holy and is the only truth and authority in life.

We accept, without reservation, the Scripture of the Old and New Testament as the inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God, the only rule and norm for faith and practice. Accordingly, we subscribe wholeheartedly to the teachings of Christ confessed in the ecumenical creeds of the Christian church (i.e. the Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian creeds) and the Lutheran confession of Holy Scripture contained in the Book of Concord of 1580. We encourage Luther's Small Catechism as a simple instruction of Christ's doctrine for the Christian family.

God in His grace and mercy gives to us sinners His Son Jesus Christ and faith in His Word.

We believe and teach that God graciously bestows eternal life to the fallen sinner by the atoning work of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, who shed his holy blood on the cross as sacrifice and payment for the sins of the world. [John 3:16, Colossians 1:19-23, 2 Corinthians 5:19, 21]

We are all sinners and only by God's grace can we come to Him. We cannot earn His grace or mercy by our own “goodness.”

Through no merit or effort of our own, we personally receive the benefits of Christ's sacrifice for the forgiveness of all sins through the God given gift of faith. [Ephesians 2:8-9] The Holy Spirit bestows faith by means of God's Word (Holy Scripture) and sacraments (Holy Baptism, The Lord's Supper and Holy Absolution). [Romans 10:17, 2 Peter 1:21, Acts 2:38, Matthew 26:26-28, John 6:53-56, John 20:22, 23]

 

The holy communion of bread and wine are the true body and blood of Christ given to us that we may live in Him.

Throughout the baptized Christian's life, the gifts of Christ's body and blood are received for the forgiveness of sins and the strengthening of faith as they are distributed in the word and sacraments of the Divine Service. [Matthew 18:20, Hebrews 10:19-25] Where sins are forgiven, there is deliverance from death and the devil, life and eternal salvation. [Colossians 1:13-14, Titus 3:5-7]

Where we are in our life is where God has us; we are blessed to be a blessing to others right where we are.

As a result of this gracious redemption, we consider our present vocations as God pleasing places for service in His kingdom. We are free to serve others as Jesus bid us in His great commandment to love the Lord with our whole heart, soul, and mind and to love our neighbors as ourselves. [Matthew 22:36-39]

While we serve here on earth, we look forward to one day being in heaven with Him in all of his glory.

Likewise, we are Christ's workmanship, created in Him for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. [Matthew 22:37-39, Ephesians 2:10] As we live and serve in Christ's Name, we eagerly await His coming again for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. [John 5:28-29, Hebrews 9:27-28, Corinthians 15:42-45]
