We teach that no one is perfect and the human condition is by nature sinful and unclean. Human beings need God's love, forgiveness, and abounding grace (Romans 3:23).
We believe in the power of prayer and pledge to become more faithful in our collective and individual prayer life (Philipians 4:4-7).
In Holy Communion, we believe, teach and profess that Jesus Christ is truly present in, with and under the elements of bread and wine. In Holy Baptism, we believe, teach and profess that one is initiated into the family of Christ. In these two sacraments, God's amazing gift of grace refreshes us through life-giving water, and nourishes us to go forth and proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:16-20, 1 Corinthians 11:23-26).
We believe, teach and confess our faith in the Lutheran reformation themes of: grace through faith alone, scripture alone, and Christ alone! A personal relationship with the triune God is a gift, not an accomplishment (Hebrews 11:1-3, Psalm 119:105,Romans 12:1-8).
For by grace you have been saved through faith.
And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, (Ephesians 2:8)
