What We Believe

We Believe

  • Sinners are made right with God by grace alone through faith alone on account of Christ alone. This is the article of faith by which the Church stands or falls.
     
  • The Word of God is Jesus Christ, the proclamation about him, and the Holy Scriptures.
     
  • This Word functions as both law and gospel, which need to be distinguished, but not separated.
     
  • The law orders society and convicts us of sin, showing us our need for a Savior.
     
  • The gospel is the power of God that liberates us from sin, death, and the power of the devil, and brings us, by grace, from death to life.
     
  • God elects sinners for salvation through the proclamation of the Word by which the Holy Spirit gives faith.
     
  • The Church is the assembly of saints in which the Gospel is taught purely and the sacraments are administered rightly.
     
  • It is not necessary that human traditions or rites and ceremonies, instituted by men, should be alike everywhere. (CA VII) Churches band together in fellowship and mission to strengthen their ministries.
