Our congregation accepts and preaches the Bible-based teachings of Dr. Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.
Sola Gratia (Grace Alone) – God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.
Sola Fide (Faith Alone) – By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.
Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone) – The Bible is God’s inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.
The Lord's Supper
The Bible calls us to have the same understanding of the Christian faith (1 Corinthians 10:1-22), to believe that Jesus’ body and blood are truly present in the communion elements (Matthew 26:26-28, 1 Corinthians 10:16, and 11:27), and to be properly prepared.
