What We Believe, Teach & Confess

  • We accept the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired living Word of God; the unchanging truth by which God’s faithful people live. (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Peter 1:21)
  • We believe in the Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28: 19)
  • We believe that God created all things, including man, holy and without sin. But man, of his own free will, fell into sin and thus brought sin upon the whole human race. (Genesis 1; Romans 5:12)
  • We believe that the punishment for sin is death, but God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son to redeem the world. (Romans 6:35; John 3:16)
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is true God, the eternal Son of the Father, that He died for our sins, that through Him alone we are forgiven, saved and made children of God, not by works but by grace. (John 1:1; 2 Corinthians 5:19-21; Galatians 3:26; Ephesians 2:8-9)
  • We believe in Holy Baptism as a means whereby God makes us his own apart from any merit or worthiness in us. (Titus 3:15; Matthew 28:19)
  • We believe in the Lord’s Supper as a means whereby God forgives our sins and strengthens our faith by giving us the true body and blood of the Lord Jesus (1 Corinthians 10:16; 1 Corinthians 11:26-28)
