What We Believe
We accept the Bible-based teachings of salvation by Grace alone, Scripture alone, Faith alone.
A more detailed summary of our beliefs can be found in Luther's Small Catechism, which you can read freely online courtesy of Concordia Publishing House.
What does this mean?
The three Protestant Solas - Grace alone, Scripture alone, Faith alone - are at the core of our Lutheran theology. If you're wondering, here is a short summary of each.
God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him, and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus Christ, His only-begotten Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.
By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness of sins and eternal life in heaven for all who believe in Him. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.
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 only rule and norm for Christian doctrine.
