We believe that the human race was originally created holy by God but lost this holiness through disobedience. God loves us in spite of this rebellion and sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the price for all the sins of all people. Jesus did this when He died on a cross in our place and then rose again from the dead on the third day. We ourselves cannot do anything to earn our salvation. It is the gift of God through faith in Jesus Christ.
The source for what we believe and teach is the Holy Bible, God’s inspired Word. We believe that the Triune God – Father, Son, Holy Spirit – calls us to faith through Means of Grace, which are God’s Word, Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper.
Everyone who relies on Jesus Christ for forgiveness and eternal life is a member of the true Christian Church. With God’s help, we seek to live as His people in all that we do.
