Statement of Faith

We believe that the only true God is the Triune God; one God made of three distinct and separate persons. [Hebrews 11:1-3; John 3:16; John 5:39; Acts 4:12; 1 Corinthians 12:3]

We believe that God desires all people to be saved and know the truth. [Ezekiel 33:11; 1 Timothy 2:3-4; 2 Peter 3:9; 1 John 4:16; John 3:1-8; Romans 3:23; Colossians 1:21; Ephesians 2:1-5]

We believe that God so loved people that He sent His only Son Jesus to rescue us from our lost condition. [1 Timothy 2:5-6; Colossians 2:8-9; Isaiah 53:5; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Mark 16:16; Romans 10:9-10]

We believe that the Holy Spirit brings us to and keeps us in saving faith through God’s Word, Holy Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper. [1 Corinthians 12:3; Romans 10:17; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; Hebrews 4:12; John 1:12-13; John 3:1-8; Titus 3:5; Acts 2:38; 1 Corinthians 10:16-17; Matthew 26:27-28; John 6:54-58; 1 Corinthians 11:26]

We believe that through the Church God equips and empowers believers to serve Him by serving others and sharing the good news about Jesus. [Matthew 25:34-40; 1 Peter 4:10; Romans 12:3-21; Genesis 2:18; Galatians 6:9-10; Hebrews 10:25; Proverbs 27:17; Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:9-13; Matthew 28:19-20; John 20:30-31]

We believe and affirm the tenets of the Christian faith as they are outlined in the three ecumenical creeds: the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed.
