We confess the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We proclaim Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour.
We trust the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.
We believe in God’s grace
We believe that we are saved 'by grace, for Christ's sake, through faith'. In other words, there is nothing we can do to earn God's favour or to gain eternal life. Through his death and resurrection, Jesus Christ has won all this and more for us. We also believe that only the Bible is the source of inspiration and teaching.
"Human nature wants to feel and to be certain before it believes.
Faith wants to believe before it feels.” Martin Luther
We believe in the "Means of Grace"
The Means of Grace are those things by which God offers and gives His gifts of forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation. In other words, the Means of Grace are the Gospel in Word and Sacrament.
The Holy Spirit uses these to create, strengthen and sustain faith in Jesus Christ and the life we have in him. Every Sunday in worship we hear God’s word from the Scriptures, pray as Jesus taught and come to the Lord’s Table expecting to receive the mercies that the Triune God promises.
"So today the Word itself, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper are our morning stars to which we turn our eyes as certain indications of the Sun of grace. For we can definitely assert that where the Lord's Supper, Baptism, and the Word are found, Christ, the remission of sins, and life eternal are found". Martin Luther
