This We Believe

  • In an age of constant change, we believe in the unchanging Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • In an age of human speculation and theorizing, we believe God created the universe in six ordinary (24 hour) days.
  • In an age of skepticism, we believe that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.
  • In an age of guilt, we believe that Christ died on the cross to remove the power of sin, death, and Satan from our lives.
  • In an age of fear and uncertainty, we believe that Christ rose bodily from the grave to assure us of the victory over death.
  • In an age of confusion, we believe that the whole Bible is God's Word, free from all errors, contradictions, and myths.
  • In an age of unfaithfulness to God's Word, we believe we are to test all teachings to see if they are of God.
  • In an age of do-it-yourselfism, we believe the Holy Spirit creates and strengthens faith through the Means of Grace: the Gospel in Word and Sacrament.
  • In an age of many different philosophies, we believe that our lives should be guided by God Almighty through His inspired Word.
  • In an age of the social gospel, we believe the church's God-given mission is to proclaim the true Gospel; repentance, remission of sins, and life eternal in Jesus' name
