wHAT wE bELIEVE
As Lutherans, we know Jesus Christ and build our lives on Him. We know Jesus Christ is the perfect Son of God, that He died for every person in the world, that He rose from the dead and lives for all people who believe in Him as their Savior.
As Lutherans, we live with the sure hope of eternal life because of Jesus Christ. We know we are not perfect and we make mistakes in our life with God. But we also know that Jesus Christ has paid for and won forgiveness for those who repent and seek His forgiveness. We know God will forgive us because of Jesus.
Lutherans are Christians who share many beliefs with other Christians.
God is three persons in one. God the Father created the world and cares for it; God the Son (Jesus) lived as a human being, died and rose from the dead; God the Holy Spirit works God’s will in the world.
The Bible is God’s Word written for us by human writers.
Sin exists in every person and is the cause of bad things people do to each other.
The earth and all its inhabitants were created to serve and bring honor to God.
After death, everyone will exist forever, either in heaven or hell.
God has a plan to end the world. On that day He will judge everyone living and dead. He will judge us according to our faith in Jesus Christ.

Worship is central to all of our life as God’s people. We believe it is essential for Lutheran Christians to gather in worship and praise to the Lord and to develop their own personal and family devotional and worship life. Worship is designed to proclaim the message of salvation through faith in Jesus Christ through God’s Word and Sacraments. Worship has three parts: We approach God by making confession of our sins and receiving His forgiveness; God gives us His gifts through His Word and Sacraments; We respond to God’s Word by offering prayers, offerings, and praise. It is our hope that you will find worship meaningful, uplifting and helpful for your life.
The Lord's Supper
We believe that the Bible teaches us that our Lord Jesus graciously shares with us His body and blood to forgive our sins, assure us of salvation, strengthen our faith, and unite us as members of His church.
That we are sinful human beings in need of forgiveness
That the Lord’s Body and Blood are truly present in the bread and the wine which he offers us
That through the sacrament we are forgiven of our sins
That we are strengthened to live as God’s people
That we proclaim our faith through participation in this sacrament
The Bible tells us:
For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. So then, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. Everyone ought to examine themselves before they eat of the bread and drink from the cup. For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves.
1 Corinthians 11:23-29
