What We Believe

What We Believe

Our Principles

Christ Centered

We confess the apostolic faith in Jesus Christ according to the Holy Scriptures. We affirm the authority of the Scriptures as the authoritative source and norm, “according to which all doctrines should and must be judged” (Formula of Concord). We accept the ecumenical creeds and the Lutheran Confessions as true witnesses to the Word of God.

Mission Driven

We believe that the mission of the Church is to preach the Gospel and to make disciples for Christ. We believe that making disciples — in our congregations, in our communities and nations, and around the world — must be a priority of the Church of Christ in the present age.

Confessionally Grounded

We affirm the ecumenical creeds and the faithful witness of the Church across time and space. We endorse the form and practices of the universal Church that are consistent with Scripture, particularly the office of the ministry and the tradition of worship under Word and Sacrament. We seek dialogue and fellowship with other Lutheran churches and with faithful Christians of other confessions, and respectful engagement with other religions.

Worship

What happens when you come to church to worship God?

Gathering

Your joining in the church's worship begins before you arrive at the church-as you leave your home and make your way to the gathering of God's people. By this simple act you help to proclaim the promise of Jesus: "Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them" (Matt. 18:20).

Singing the psalms and hymns...

In a Lutheran congregation, the singing of hymns is dear to the people. The words of the great hymns sound in their hearts through a lifetime. By joining these hymns you proclaim the Gospel, learn the words of Scripture, encourage Christian hearts, and meditate on the mysteries of the faith. In these hymns you learn to sound out your sorrow for sin and your joy in believing. In them you may learn the love of God.

Receiving Christ in the Word...

In the lessons from the Old and New Testaments, in the reading from the gospels, and in the words of the preacher, the assembly hears the Word of God. But proclamation of the Word is not the solo work of the reader or the preacher. You, with the whole assembly, are asked to listen actively in faith - to listen for God's command that judges and challenges you, for God's promise that brings you a new life in Christ.

Receiving Christ in the sacraments...

This, finally, is the place where the Word of God brings you - to the waters of Baptism and to the Supper at Christ's altar. If you have not been baptized, you are asked to come in faith and take Jesus at his word: "The one who

believes and is baptized will be saved." At Baptism you will confess the church's faith, receive Christ's forgiveness and Holy Spirit, and join the church as a follower of Jesus. At every worship gathering the church affirms the Baptism once received, that you may be renewed in God's ever-fresh baptismal grace. At Holy Communion the baptized believers come once again to take Christ at his word: "This is my body, given for you... The righteous will live by faith. Romans 1: 17 This cup is the new covenant in my blood" (1 Cor. 11:24,25). You are not asked to come with scholarly understanding or with elaborate religious thoughts. Rather you are invited to come empty, repenting of your sins, trusting that Christ will do what he has promised. It is Christ who promises, Christ who acts. Faith simply receives.

Going in peace, serving the Lord...

The Holy Spirit who has gathered the church also disperses God's people into the world to love and serve their neighbors. Having worshiped in forgiveness at the cross of Jesus, you can now live by the love that flows from his cross. Having learned to confess, On the third day he rose again, you can now place your well-being in the hands of the living Savior. Free from the dread of God's punishment, the fear of dying, and the boredom of a predictably selfish life, you are now free to love and serve simply for the glory of God.
