The Holy Trinity
We believe in one God who is the Creator of all things, and continues to create new things everyday. God is three distinct persons in the same being (God, the Father; the Son; and the Holy Spirit). As the church we are called into mission with the help of all three persons of God. Through the Word of God, the example and teachings of love through Jesus Christ, and the continual inspiration of the Holy Spirit we strive to make our community, and the world around us a better place.
We teach that God is the maker of all things and that we are saved and redeemed by God’s grace.
We teach, and confess, that Jesus is our Lord, Savior & Redeemer by his death on the cross. We believe that through his life, death, and resurrection, we are all created new people to go out into the world to share this message of redemption.
We believe the Holy Spirit is active in our lives individually, and as a community when we come together, to learn about and grow in our relationship with God through insight and revelation of Jesus in Scripture.
We believe this is the inspired Word of God consisting of the the Old & New Testaments. This is the authoritative source where we should base all of our decisions in life, faith, and service in the name of God.
We believe Jesus Christ is the head of the church, and by the power of the Holy Spirit we come together to praise God for the blessings in our lives. We come together to worship to be nourished and feel supported by the love of God, and each other, to serve our neighbors with the same mercy and grace that God shows us in the teachings of Jesus.
Saint and Sinner
As Lutheran Christians we teach, and confess, the faith of the church from the teachings of Martin Luther (1483-1546). One of the prominent teachings is that while we strive to follow the teachings of the Old & New Testaments to the best of our abilities (Saint), as human beings who are prone to sin, we fall short of God’s commandments and wishes (Sinner). We live in tension with this our whole lives and are in need of our relationship with God for guidance.
