WHAT WE BELIEVE
Statement of Faith
Our constitution declares our Confession of Faith in this way:
“This congregation accepts all the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments as a whole and in all their parts as the divinely inspired, revealed, and inerrant Word of God and submits to this as the only infallible authority in all matters of faith and life.
As brief and true statements of the doctrine of the Word of God, this congregation accepts and confesses the following symbols, subscription to which shall be required of all its members: (1) the ancient ecumenical creeds: the Apostolic, the Nicene, and the Athanasian; (2) the Unaltered Augsburg Confession and Luther's Small Catechism.
As further elaboration of and in accord with these Lutheran Symbols, this congregation also receives the other documents in the Book of Concord of 1580: the Apology, Luther's Large Catechism, the Smalcald Articles, and the Formula of Concord; and recognizes them as normative for its theology.
This congregation accepts without reservation the Symbolical books of the evangelical Lutheran Church, not insofar as, but because they are the presentation and explanation of the pure doctrine of the Word of God and s summary of the faith of the evangelical Lutheran Church.”
However, we would estimate that 95% of all Lutherans have never read any of the above books except the Bible and the Small Catechism (Martin Luther’s small book to help teach the basics of the Christian faith. You may pick up a free copy in the church office). We are Bible-based, evangelical, and Christ-centered.
