What We Believe

It all starts with our vision---

FAITHFUL TO JESUS, WE REACH OUT TO EVERYONE

 

We start with our Savior, who showed us the way to Him is through faith, grace and scripture.

THROUGH FAITH – By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.

Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 14:6, Galatians 3:26

 

THROUGH GRACE – God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.

Proverbs 28:13, Psalm 51:1-2, Psalm 130:3-4, Matthew 6:12, Ephesians 4:32

 

THROUGH SCRIPTURE – We believe, accept and confess the Bible to be God’s inspired Word where God reveals Himself to us as the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Psalm 119:105 & 160, Proverbs 30:5, 2 Corinthians 13:14

Who is the Father?

God the Father is our Creator and Maker of everything in heaven and on earth. He created all mankind to live in harmony with Him for eternity; however, sin has broken that relationship and makes it impossible for mankind to find God on their own. In His great love, God sent God the Son.

Genesis 1-3, Romans 3:23, Hebrews 11:3, John 3:16

Who is the Son?

God the Son, Jesus Christ, was sent to be our Redeemer over 2000 years ago. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. Jesus lived, suffered, died and rose again to voluntarily pay the price of our sins and gain our salvation. Salvation is available to all who believe, but we cannot believe on our own. So, God sent God the Holy Spirit.

Galatians 4:4-5, Matthew 1:20-21, Hebrews 4:14-15, Ephesians 2:8-9

Who is the Holy Spirit?

God the Holy Spirit was sent to be our Sanctifier. The Holy Spirit draws sinners to Christ, creates faith in our hearts and equips believers for personal growth and service to God. By the power of the Spirit working through the Word and Sacraments, we believe and we will enter everlasting life in heaven with God.

Romans 10:17, John 14:16-17, Ephesians 2:20-22, Ephesians 4:11-13, 1 John 3:24
