Our Beliefs

There is only one God, the God of the Bible.

This God reveals his existence to us in nature. He reveals his character and his will to us in the Bible. The Bible is God-inspired and therefore without error, completely trustworthy and the absolute truth.

The Bible contains two main teachings, the Law and the Gospel. The Law exposes our sin and the condemnation we deserve because of sin. Sin is every imperfection in our lives.

The Gospel displays the forgiving love of God. It tells the good news that God has transferred our sin to his Son, Jesus Christ, and that he has transferred the perfect record of Christ's life to us.

Through his Holy Spirit, he works to convince us that this is true. He does not want us to think that we can rescue ourselves by the good we think we can do. He sent his Son to do the rescuing.

God communicates with us by means of the Bible, and in the Sacraments, Baptism and the Lord's Supper. These are his means of getting in touch with you, and of staying in touch with you.

God exposes your sin to help you overcome your pride and to get you to abandon any do-it-yourself ideas you may have. After he succeeds in convincing you that you cannot get right with him by any error of your own, he introduces the Savior to you.

God establishes a connection between you and himself when he leads us to a faith that trusts in him for his mercy and forgiveness that Christ won on the cross.

In view of God's love and forgiveness our faith seeks to show love and consideration to the people in our life. 

Worship is our way of letting God know how much He is worth to us. Staying connected to the message of God is what keeps a Christian going in the face of the challenges of life.

Faith in the saving Christ leads us to conform our thinking to God's will for our lives and for the world.

Come grow with us through the comforting and encouraging message of a loving God!
