What We Believe

  What is the Lutheran Church?null

The name “Lutheran” comes from Martin Luther, a German priest of the 1500’s, who helped the Christian Church rediscover the Good News, “For it is by grace (God’s undeserved favour) you have been saved, through faith – and this not from yourselves, it is a gift of God – not by good deeds – so that no one can boast.”    (Ephesians 2:8-9)
 

As Lutherans, We Believe…

  •    That the true God is the Triune God:  Father ~ Son ~ and Holy Spirit;
  •    That the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God and the only source of our teaching and     faith
  •    That every person is by nature sinful and that without forgiveness, is lost to eternity;
  •    That God loved the world and sent His Son to suffer and die for our sins and rise again to be our Saviour;
  •    That God forgives and saves all who repent and confess Jesus Christ as their Saviour;
  •    That in Holy Baptism, intended for old and young alike, God washes away our sin and adopts us into His family, the church;
  •    That in Holy Communion we believe in the real presence of Christ, that He gives to us forgiveness of sins and strengthens our        faith;
  •    That, in response to God’s love, forgiveness and salvation, we seek to live a God-pleasing life; and
  •    That those who die in Christ enter heaven at the time of death.
