What We Believe

What We Believe

Not all Lutherans are "made the same."  In a world of options, from fast food to divine doctrine, it is good to know not all Lutherans, and certainly not all Christians agree on issues. As far as hot topics in our culture, below you will find brief statements about what we believe about God and the life He has given us to live in His glory.

About Salvation

Lutherans believe a person is saved only by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ. (Eph 2:8-9) Good works do not save us; however, "we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good work which He has planned for us." (Eph 2:10)

About God

Lutherans believe in the Triune God; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit...One God. Matthew 28:18-20

Lutherans believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, the Word of God that became flesh. John 1:14

We use the words of the Apostle's Creed and Nicene Creed regularly in worship as statements of our faith that express these and other truths found in the Bible.

About the Bible

We believe that the Word of God is inspired and infallable. It is our authority on all matters of doctrine. As St. Paul writes, "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17

About the Church

Lutherans are a part of the one holy Christian and apostolic Church confessed in the Nicene Creed. Lutherans understand the Church to consist of all those who believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.

About the Sacraments

Lutherans accept two "sacraments" as defined by having the three following aspects:

1. Instituted by Christ

2. For the forgiveness of sins

3. Uses a tangible, visible element

Therefore, Baptism and Communion are considered "sacraments." Learn more about these by clicking the link to the right or, better yet, attending our Foundations of Faith class.
