What We Believe

Statement of Faith

We believe, teach and confess as true: the Christian Faith which was once delivered unto the saints, revealed in the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible, and expressed in the three ecumenical symbols: the Apostolic, the Nicene, the Athanasian Creeds; and the Lutheran Confessions contained in the Book of Concord.

All ritual and polity of the Church are to be governed according to the immovable truths of the above mentioned Confessions, namely, that the Holy Word of God (both the Old and New Testaments) shall be the sole authority of truth in the light of which all doctrine in this Church shall be examined and determined.

The principal calling (duty) of this Church shall be the propagation of the true Christian Faith, which shall manifest itself in the faithful administration of God’s true Means of Grace through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ: His Word and Sacraments (Holy Baptism and Holy Communion).
