What We Believe

Our beliefs…

We believe in God the Father who created us and all that exists.  We believe in Jesus the Messiah:  God who came to earth overcoming sin and death.  He is our Lord and Savior.  We believe in God, the Holy Spirit, who gives the gift of faith and is constantly at work in the world today.

We believe God is revealed most clearly in the actions and words of Jesus of Nazareth.  He died for our sins and arose from death to assure us of abundant and eternal life with God and all God’s children.

We believe the canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the written Word of God.  Inspired by God’s Spirit, the Bible records and announces God’s revelation centering in Jesus Christ.  God’s Word and Spirit speaks to us creating and sustaining the Christian faith for service in the world.

We believe we are ‘God’s People, Reaching Out’ to share the Good News and the gifts our Lord has entrusted to us.  We like our Lutheran emphasis on God’s grace and mercy.  We also like not being alone as Christians.  We rejoice in the faith and hope we share with Christian sisters and brothers near and far.  Wherever you are coming from, we are glad you are here!
