Our Beliefs

We Believe...
  • That the true God is the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • That the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God and the only source of our teaching and faith.
  • That every person is by nature sinful  and without forgiveness is lost for eternity.
  • That God loved the world and sent His Son to suffer and die for our sins and rise again to be our Savior.
  • That God forgives and saves all who repent and accept Jesus Christ as their Savior.
  • That in Holy Baptism, intended for old and young alike, God washes away our sins and adopts us into His family, the Church.
  • That is Holy Communion we receive the Body and Blood of the Living Christ with the bread and wine, for the forgiveness of sins and the strengthening of faith.
  • That out of love for God's salvation we seek to live a God-pleasing life.
  • That those who die in Christ enter heaven at the time of death.
  • That at His second coming Christ will raise up all the dead and judge all people.
