Scripture / Creeds / Teachings

We believe, teach, and accept the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired Word of God and the sole authoritative source and norm of our proclamation, faith, and life.

  • We believe, teach, and confess the gospel, recorded in the Holy Scriptures and confessed in the ecumenical creeds and Lutheran confessional writings, as the power of God to create and sustain the priesthood of all believers for God’s mission in the world.
  • We accept the Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds as true declarations of the scriptural faith we believe, teach, and confess.
  • We look to the Ten Commandments to guide us in how to honor and serve our God and how best to live and serve one another.
  • We begin our worship with a Confession of Sins and receive God’s grace as we are forgiven through the redemption of our Savior, Jesus Christ.
