What We Believe

Jesus of Nazareth, God who became a man, sacrificed His perfect life to save you from eternal death. He endured public torture and suffered a slow, excruciating death on a cross made of wood. This He did so YOU could live eternally with Him in paradise, should you only believe.
The one and only true God is the Triune God, that is one God in three persons: the Father who creates, the Son who redeems and the Holy Spirit who comforts and sanctifies. This takes place by Grace through faith which He creates through Word and Sacrament.The Bible
The Holy Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God. It contains no errors. In His Word God reveals Himself and His will for us.

In Baptism God makes us His children, gives us faith and forgiveness of our sins. This is true for infants, children and adults.

The Lord’s Supper
In the Lord’s Supper (or Sacrament of the Altar) we receive the true body and blood of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins and the strengthening of our faith.The Holy Spirit
Through the Word and Sacraments, the Holy Spirit works faith in us by the Grace of God.

Salvation & Eternal Life
Through faith in Jesus Christ we receive Salvation and Eternal Life, which He has earned for us by His death on the cross and His resurrection.

Faith & Good Works
Believers in Jesus Christ show their faith through their love and good works to others.

We also believe that…

God created man and woman, to live with Him and love Him forever. But, Adam and Eve disobeyed God by giving in to Satan’s temptation. Because of this, sin entered the world and our lives. All people are now sinful and unable by themselves to love God. They cannot obey God’s law perfectly. God, who is holy and righteous, punishes sin with death here on earth, and eternal punishment in hell. By ourselves, we cannot escape this punishment. Yet God does not abandon us in our sin. He promised Adam and Eve that He would send a Saviour who would rescue His people from sin and the punishment they deserve. This Saviour is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who came to earth to be born of the virgin Mary that He might be a man like us. This “God-Man” lived a perfect sinless life, and then was put to death on a cross. He died not because of His own sins, but to rescue us from our sins. God in His love and mercy accepted the death of Christ as punishment for the sins of the whole world. Christ’s resurrection on the first Easter is our assurance of Eternal Life.

Therefore, all who believe in Christ now have nothing to fear from death. Just as Christ rose from the dead, we too will be raised in the Last Day of Eternal Life. Christ said: “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” (Mark 16:16)
