We Believe

  • That the entire Bible is God's perfect Word.
  • That God is three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, yet one God.
  • That Jesus is true God, existing from eternity, and true man, born of the virgin Mary.
  • That Jesus died on the cross, rose from the dead, and now rules the universe.
  • That forgiveness of sins, peace with God, and the sure hope of heaven comes freely and only

through Jesus Christ.

  • That the Holy Spirit creates, strengthens, and preserves saving faith in our hearts through the Good News

of Jesus in God's Word, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper.

  • That Jesus Christ will return on the Last Day to judge all people and take all who trust in Him to heaven.
