What We Believe
 

What Lutherans Believe We don’t know where you are in your faith walk, but we understand that questions are worth answering. While it’s impossible to address every question you might have, we hope this will at least provide a start.

About the Bible Everything Lutherans believe comes from the Bible, which is the written Word of God.

About God There is only one true God- the Triune God-Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

About us We all fall short of God’s expectations- we are born “sinful.”

About “being saved There is nothing we can do to “be saved.” Jesus Christ has done everything in his life, death and resurrection. We are remembering (celebrating) this real, historical life event with the services listed above.

About faith It is through faith in Jesus that we receive the forgiveness of sins and eternal life-by believing that He has freed us from guilt, punishment, and the power of sin. Faith is a gift worked in us by the power of the Holy Spirit.

About good works Since there is nothing we can do to earn our salvation, we do not do good works in order TO be saved, but BECAUSE we our saved. God doesn’t need our good works, our neighbor does.

About Grace Lutherans often refer to grace. While we deserved to pay the penalty for our sins, God had a different plan. Christ paid the debt and offers us forgiveness of sins and eternal life freely-out of unconditional love

About eternal life On Judgment Day-we don’t know when- Jesus Christ is going to return. On that day, everyone who has died will be raised, and those who are alive will be bodily transformed. Those who do not believe will go into eternal damnation in hell and all those who believe in Jesus as Savior will have eternal life in heaven.
