Here is what matters most to us:We believe that God loved us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to die and rise for us. We are connected with other Christians and we call ourselves Lutheran. That means that we agree with this German guy from the 1500's named Martin Luther. He believed that salvation in Jesus Christ is to be the center of everything we teach. What do we teach? Here are the basics: We believe that sinful man (that's me and you) is saved by... Grace Alone - God loves the people of the world, even though we are all sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly. This truth is based on... Scripture Alone - The Bible is God's Own Word (by the way, it has no mistakes and never fails) in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the only place that we go to determine Christian doctrine. This saving work of Jesus is freely given to us by... Faith Alone - By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.
