Our Faith: We Believe...
- In the Triune God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit
- God loves the people of the world, even though we are sinful, rebel against Him, and do not deserve His love.
- By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them.
- God desires that all people would be saved and offers that salvation as a free gift, received by faith in Jesus Christ alone.
- God creates, nourishes, and strengthens our faith through His Word, Baptism, and the Lord's Supper.
