We believe that God has called his people together to share his light and love in the world. We are committed to connecting our community with Christ through preaching, teaching, service, and care. We'd love to chat with you more about what we believe, please contact one of our pastors if you'd like more information.
- We are a member of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod.
- We believe that the Bible is the only source of the Christian faith.
- We also believe that the Lutheran Confessions are a clear and true statement of our faith and explanation of the Word of God.
- The Lutheran Confessions can be found within the Book of Concord and include the three ecumenical creeds, the Augsburg Confession, as well as Luther's Small Catechism among other documents.
The following are our core beliefs of based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.
There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise. God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.
Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.
When Adam and Eve sinned and chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.
Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith. Salvation is found in Christ alone.
The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Church exists where the Gospel is clearly preached and the Sacraments are rightly administered.
Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth in the new creation.
