****************************

We Believe..........

"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God." (2 Timothy 3:16)

        We believe and accept the Bible as the infallible Word of God and the only source for all teachings of our church.

l "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God... The wages of sin is death."  (Romans 3:23 and 6:23)

        We Believe that all people are guilty of sin and as a result deserve the eternal punishment of hell.

+     +     +     +     +     +     +

"For God so loved the world that He sent His only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life."  (John 3:16)

        We Believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God lived and died for all people and that all who believe in him receive forgiveness and eternal life in heaven.

+     +     +     +     +     +     +

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God ."  (Ephesians 2:8)

        We Believe that faith in Jesus Christ is not a human accomplishment, but a gift given by God through His Word and Sacraments, Holy Baptism and Holy Communion.

+     +     +     +     +     +     +

"Christ died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him." ."  (2 Corinthians 5:15)

        We Believe that those who believe in Jesus Christ will show it by striving for a life of obedience to God's commands and loving service to others.
