What We Believe

nullLutherans are Christians (Protestants) who get their name from Martin Luther, a German monk who was excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church in the early 1500's. Luther’s writing and teaching sparked the Protestant Reformation.

The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases:

 

Faith Alone Grace Alone Scripture Alone

Jesus’ suffering and death is the substitute for all people of all time. He purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for all. Those who hear this Good News and believe it will have the eternal life that it offers.

God loves the people of the world, even though we are sinful, rebel against Him, and do not deserve His love.

The Bible is God’s inerrant (without error) Word, in which He reveals His Law (what is required of us to have a relationship with God) and His Gospel (what God has done through His Son, Jesus, for us so that we can have a relationship with Him).

Here is more in-depth information about what we believe.
