What We Believe

About God:

We are united in our faith as expressed through the three ecumenical creeds: The Apostles Creed, The Nicene Creed and the Athanasian Creed. There is one Triune God.

        Father by whom all things were created and who preserves all life.

                                                                                                (Colossians 1:17, 1 Corinthians 8:6)


        The Son who in his birth, death and resurrection has redeemed sinners.

                                                                                                              (John 3:16-17, Acts 4:12)


        The Holy Spirit who gives to us the saving gift of faith.  

                                                                                                                      (1 Corinthians 12:3)

What is God’s goal?
God desires that all people be saved through a relationship with Jesus Christ. That is why He sent         his beloved Son to redeem us – a lost and sinful people. It is why the Son sent the Holy Spirit who       brings us the gift of faith in Holy Baptism, and works to maintain it through contact with the Word         of God and Holy Communion.  (John 3:16-17, Romans 3:23, 1 Timothy 2:3-4, 1 John 4:16)


What then is the Church’s role?
Through the church, God calls and equips disciples to serve Him by serving His creation – our              neighbors. We do so by meeting their physical and spiritual needs.  (Galatians 6:9-10, Hebrews            10:25)


What is your role?
      God has given each of us gifts, talents, and blessings to work in the community in His name. He            desires us to create relationships that point to Him. Our purpose is to lead others into God’s grace.        (Matthew 25:34-40, 1 Peter 4:10, Romans 12)

About the Bible

      We believe that the Bible is God’s inspired and true Word. It is the only source for knowledge                about God and His love for us as shown in Jesus Christ (John 20:31, 1 John 5:13). The Bible                speaks to us in both Law and Gospel.  The Law serves as a guide; to tell us what we should do. It        serves as a mirror; to show us how we really are. It also functions as a ruler; showing us that we,        as sinful beings, do not and cannot keep His law perfectly.  But we also have the message of the          Gospel. Most well-known through John 3:16, we are reminded that God loves His creation and              sent His Son, Jesus, to redeem us.

About Baptism

      We recognize and accept the validity of baptisms properly administered (using water in any                  quantity and/or mode, together with the Trinitarian invocation instituted by Christ in Matthew                28:19) in all Christian churches.  If you have already received a proper Christian baptism, there            is no need for you to be re-baptized, although discussion with pastor or completion of our                    information classes is required of non-Lutherans who wish to commune. For additional                        questions or information, please contact our pastor who will be more than happy                                to discuss further with you.

About Holy Communion

      We celebrate the Lord’s Supper on the first and third Sundays. We are reminded by the Apostle            Paul to examine ourselves before we participate in this sacrament. We believe that Christ’s true            body and blood are offered in these elements of bread and wine.  All who share our beliefs and            who come with repentant hearts are invited to join us. Those who have never communed with us          before are asked to speak to the Pastor before this service. Grape Juice is available in the center of        the tray for those who prefer it. If you are not ready to participate in the Lords’ Supper with us,            please feel free to come forward. Folding your arms will indicate to the Pastors your desire to                receive a blessing.


We invite you to join us in worship!
