What We Believe




Lutherans are Christians who have a very clear definition of what we believe and it can be broken down into five statements about our faith.

BIBLE ALONE

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the absolute and ultimate authority for our lives. 

II Timothy 3:16


FAITH ALONE

We believe we are a fallen humanity and need salvation. It is by faith in Jesus the Son of God, that we are saved.

Romans 3:19-28


GRACE ALONE

We believe it is by the Grace of God and the sacrifice of His Son Jesus Christ that we are forgiven of our sins.

Ephesians 2:8-9


CHRIST ALONE

We believe Jesus is the only pathway to God.

John 14:1-6


TO THE GLORY OF GOD ALONE

We believe we are created to serve and worship God and that all glory be given to Him.

Ephesians 2:10
