What We Believe

  1. There is only one true God, who has created us and all that exists, and who has revealed himself in three persons (the Triune God): God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
    • Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.  Deuteronomy 6:4
    • Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Matthew 28:19
  2. All people are conceived and born sinful and are completely incapable of saving themselves by good living.
    • Open my lips, Lord, and my mouth will declare your praise. Psalm 51:15
    • As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God.  All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.” Romans 3:10-12
    • …for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God Romans 3:23
  3. God, motivated by his unconditional love for us, provided for our salvation through the death and resurrection of his son, Jesus Christ.
    • For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
  4. We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone.
    • For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:8-10
    • Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
  5. Faith in Jesus Christ comes by the power of the Holy Spirit who creates faith through God’s Word and equips and empowers believers for faithful living in service to God and others.
    • Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ. Romans 10:17
    • But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Galatians 5:22-25
  6. All Christians are called to live for Jesus, seeking to serve and honor him in all facets of life as the actively participate in God’s mission to save the people of the world.
    • Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20
  7. The Bible is the Word of God, true and without error in all its parts, and therefore the final authority in all matters of faith and life.
    • and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:15-17
  8. We believe that in Baptism and the Lord’s Supper God brings his grace to us in a personal and physical way.
    • he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior,so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. Titus 3:5-7
    • Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Matthew 28:19
    • This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. Matthew 26:28
