Here are some of the foundational beliefs of our church:

  • There is only one true God: the triune God – Father, Son & Holy Spirit.

  • The Bible’s purpose is to reveal man’s sin and God’s grace.

 

  • God created the entire universe in six normal days.
  • Adam & Eve fell into sin and brought all creation under God’s wrath.
  • God promised to rescue mankind from eternal death through a Savior.
  • Jesus Christ is the Savior whom God promised.

 

  • Jesus is 100% true man and 100% true God.
  • Jesus’ perfect life and death on the cross paid for your sin in full.
  • You receive forgiveness in full through faith in Jesus Christ.
  • Faith in Jesus Christ is a result of God working through the Word.

 

  • It is not possible to enter heaven without faith in Jesus Christ.
  • We do good works to express thankfulness to God, not to earn his favor.
  • God strengthens faith through Baptism and Holy Communion.
  • Holy Communion is an expression of agreement in faith.

 

  • Jesus will return in glory to judge the world.
  • All people will be raised from the dead on Judgment Day.
