What We Believe

 

 

All the Bible is the Word of God, written by men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit, and is the basis for teaching and God-pleasing living (2nd Peter 3:21).

 

 The Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).

 

 That because of the curse of sin, people are born sinful and separated from God (Psalm 51:5).

 

 Although we are born under the curse of sin, God loves us and sent His Son Jesus to be our Savior (John 3:16).

 

 That faith is a gift of God, and good deeds of our lives flow from faith, but do not earn, or help to earn, salvation (Ephesians 2:8-9).

 

That God the Holy Spirit brings us to believe in Jesus through the Gospel (2nd Thessalonians 2:13-14).

 

That Holy Baptism is a miraculous act of God's grace enabling people of all ages to become part of God's family (Acts 2:38-39).

 

That the Lord's Supper brings forgiveness of sins and spiritual strength through the gift of Jesus' body and blood to everyone who has faith (Matthew 26:26-28).
