As Christians, we follow the teachings of Jesus and the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. We believe in the trinity:
- God, our parent
- Jesus, our savior
- The Holy Spirit, our advocate, who gives us insight and gifts to carry God’s mission forward in this place and time.
As Lutheran Christians, we follow the theological tradition of Martin Luther:
For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God—not the result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are what he has made us, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life. Ephesians 2:8-10
Our saving relationship with God is pure gift, given freely through the sacrificial death of Jesus to be received in faith. In the forgiving presence of God, we’re set free so the good works we’re created for may flow naturally from our daily living. What this means for us is:
- Sharing the good news of Christ in word and action.
- Making maximum use of our building for congregation and community.
- Joining our efforts with other individuals and organizations to care for people and creation.
