What We Believe

We believe that the Bible is God's unfailing Word to us. It shows us who God is by telling us the great things God has done. The Bible leads us to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

We believe God saves us by grace, by his acts of kindness and love that we do not deserve. Our own efforts cannot rescue us from sin. Only Jesus' sacrifice on the cross can make us right with God (Eph. 2:8-10)

We believe we can be saved only by faith in Jesus Christ (John 3:16-18).

We believe that the Bible is our only reliable guide to what we should believe and how we should conduct our lives (2 Tim. 3:14-17).

We believe that believers belong to God. Our Creator receives us as members of his family and grants us the precious promise of eternal life (Eph. 1:3-5).

We believe that our Lord speaks to us through the faithful preaching and teaching of God's Word. He confirms what is spoken through baptism and the Lord's Supper.
