We Believe

We Believe...

... there is only one God

who created everything, controls everything, cares for everything

who shows us He exists through nature and conscience

who tells us about Himself in the Bible

who has revealed Himself as three distinct persons-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

who is the only True God among the gods of all religions

... there is only one reliable source of information

the Bible is unique

the Bible tells us all we need to know about God

the Bible tells us human existence is no accident

the Bible tells us God wants to be with us now and forever

the Bible tells us that to live with God forever we need to be perfect, sinless

... there is only one true faith

life with God is only possible by His grace because no one is perfect

Jesus Christ is true God and true man, 

who lived a perfect life for us

who suffered and died on the cross for us

who rose from the dead and provided the only way for us to have life with God forever

all who admit their sinfulness and believe in Jesus as their one and only Saviour are counted holy in God's eyes and receive eternal life

therefore, we want to lead a God-pleasing life

"God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son,

that whoever believes in Him should not perish,

but have eternal life."

-- John 3:16 (ESV)

The basis of all Lutheran teachings is the Bible. Martin Luther and the other reformers wrote a series of documents answering accusations that their teaching was contrary to commonly held beliefs and practices of the 15th century church. These defenses and arguments, based upon the Bible were presented before a series of theological gatherings.

Eventually, they were compiled into The Book of Concord. These comprise the doctrine and confession of the Lutheran Church.

who we are

To faithfully and regularly use the Word of God and the Sacraments for the strengthening of our ministry to the lost so that God can use us as ambassadors of His grace and love to bring all who would, under the influence of the Holy Spirit, into a right relationship with their Heavenly Father. 

To help each member of the family of God live the "peace" that is theirs through the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ their Lord and Saviour.

To express our heart-felt thanks for the gift of eternal peace through purposeful and joyful worship and work in and for the kingdom of God.
