...the Holy Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God, and the only source and norm for Christian doctrine and practice.
...there is only one true God, who has revealed Himself in Three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
...that by His innocent suffering and death on the cross in our place, Jesus Christ made full atonement for our sins.
...Jesus rose from the dead on Easter morning, later ascended into heaven where He now lives and reigns to all eternity.
...Jesus will return on the last day to judge the living and the dead and take all believers in Him to eternal life and glory.
...God comes to us in His Church through chosen means of grace which are the Word of God (The Holy Scriptures) and the Sacraments of Baptism and The Lord's Supper (Holy Communion), and that through these means of grace He conveys to us His forgiveness.
...we are saved only by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ, which is a free gift of the Holy Spirit to us.
...Holy Baptism brings us into God's Kingdom and makes us members of the Body of Christ as we receive the Holy Spirit, who works faith in our hearts.
...the Sacrament of Holy Communion is the true body and blood of Christ which is received with the mouth along with the bread and the wine (Real Presence). This is not a symbolic eating and drinking. We believe that those who receive this Sacrament actually eat and drink the body and blood of our Lord and Savior shed for us on the cross. We do not understand or try to explain this. It is a mystery. We therefore, celebrate "closed" communion and ask that those who have not been confirmed in the Lutheran Church refrain from communion until they have been properly taught about the sacrament.
