We believe in the Triune God; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, the Word of God incarnate.
We preach Christ crucified for the forgiveness of sins.
We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible are the written and inspired Word of God, and
the authoritative source and norm of our proclamation, faith, and life.
We believe the ecumenical Apostles', Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds are true declarations of the scriptural faith we
preach, teach, and confess.
We believe and affirm the Lutheran confessional writings in the Book of Concord are a true witness to the Gospel.
We believe the Gospel, recorded in the Holy Scriptures and confessed in the ecumenical creeds and Lutheran
confessional writings, are the power of God to create and sustain the Church for God's mission in the world.
We believe that the Church is a people created by God in Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit, called and sent to bear
witness to God's creative, redeeming, and sanctifying activity in the world.
We believe and affirm the priesthood of all believers, and commit ourselves to equipping and supporting all members of
the congregation in our God-given mission focus: "Touching lives with the love of God."
