We're so glad you're interested in finding out more about our church and what we have to offer. The Gospel is God's Good News for all of creation. The Gospel is Jesus, who came to this earth, dwelt among us, took on human flesh, healed, preached, and interacted with humanity. He lived. The Law is the reality that we are sinful and need someone to save us. The Gospel is the good news that Jesus has satisfied all the requirements of God on our behalf and for our salvation. Jesus came to die our death, to suffer our punishment, to defeat sin, Satan, and death by rising from the dead victoriously. What's the benefit of the Gospel? It's everything! It means that I get forgiveness instead of punishment. I get freedom instead of bondage. I get hope instead of despair. I get eternal life instead of death. This is all given freely because of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The Bible is true, without error, authoritative, complete and inspired by the Holy Spirit of God.
There is only one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is at the heart and center of all of Scripture.
Jesus Christ died on the cross in our place and paid for our sins.
Jesus Christ rose from the dead conquering sin, death, and the devil.
Salvation can be found in no one else but Jesus, because Jesus is the only one who died and rose again for us.
We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone.
Through baptism, we are connected to Christ's burial and resurrection and it washes away our sins.
The Lord's Supper mysteriously is the true body and blood of Jesus Christ given to assure believers of the forgiveness of their sins.
The church is the body of Christ sent on mission to make disciples of all nations.
Jesus Christ will come again, ushering in a new heaven and new earth.
Specifically, we are members of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod with around 2 million members in the US, millions more worldwide, and countless souls across eternity. We are grateful for the gospel and the doctrine we have received from the scriptures and practiced by the church across the ages.
