~ We Believe

   • The Bible is all God's true Word, our final authority for faith and life.

   • The Triune of God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit is the only true God, who is the personal creator, redeemer and preserver of all things.

   • Jesus Christ, by His holy birth, life, death, and resurrection, provides forgiveness and eternal salvation for all people.

   • All people are born sinners and are saved by Jesus Christ alone, by God's grace alone, and through faith alone.

   • The Holy Spirit causes and strengthens faith through God's Word, using Holy Baptism and the Lord's Supper.

   • The Christian Church is all those who have saving faith in Jesus and who believe the truths taught in His Word.

   • The Ten Commandments are God's expectations for our lives today.

   • In Holy Communion, with the bread and wine, Jesus gives his true body and blood, for the forgiveness of sins.
