Joined together in fellowship by the
Holy Spirit and nurtured by God's Word and Sacraments, we share with
others the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
God is Triune, Father, Son, Holy Ghost;
three persons, one divine essence. He is the only true God: Matt.
28:19;1 Cor. 8:4 .
Jesus is God, equal to the Father, the only Savior of mankind: John 5:23,
14:6; Acts 4:12.
All mankind is born in sin; by nature man is spiritually blind, dead and an
enemy of God, condemned to eternal damnation outside of Christ: Psalms. 51:5; Rom.
The Bible is inspired by God, without error: II Tim. 3:16; John
The world has been reconciled to God through the death and
resurrection of Jesus, and all sins have been forgiven through Him. God no longer holds
our sins against us, but has declared us righteous: 2
Cor. 5:19; Rom. 4:25.
Coming to faith in Christ is entirely the work of the Holy Spirit,
not by some "decision" or "experience" by man. Conversion is worked by
the Gospel and Holy Baptism: I Pet. 1:23; John
Baptism creates faith, washes away sins, saves, all as a gracious
work of the Holy Spirit: John 3:5-6; Acts 22:16; I Pet.
(Our Lord’s Supper) is Christ’s true Body and Blood,
really present in the bread and wine, for the forgiveness of sins: Mt. 26:26-28; I
11:23-29; I Cor. 10:16. We practice "Closed Communion" as an expression of unity
in God’s Word: Rom.16:17; I
Cor. 1:10; I Cor. 10:16-17.
The world was created as described in Genesis 1-2. Evolution is
unscriptural, unscientific, unnecessary: Gen. 1:1; Heb. 11:3; Ps.
2ND COMING OF CHRIST:
Judgment Day will come suddenly and
unexpectedly. There is no millennium: 2 Pet. 3:10; Mk. 13:32; Matt.
