What We Believe
STATEMENT OF FAITH

We BelieveTHE SCRIPTURES The Bible is the inspired Word of God,
the product of holy men of old who spoke and wrote as they were moved by
the Holy Spirit. The New Covenant, as recorded in the New Testament,we
accept as our infallible guide in matters pertaining to conduct and doctrine
2 Tim. 3:16; 1 Thess.2:13; 2 Peter 1:21.

We BelieveTHE GODHEAD Our God is one, but manifested in three
Persons the Father,the Son, and the Holy Spirit,being coequal Phil. 2:6.
God the Father is greater than all; the Sender of the Word Logosand the
Begetter John 14:28; John 16:28; John 1:14. The Son is the Word flesh-
covered, the One Begotten, and has existed with the Father from the
beginning John 1:1; John 1:18; John 1:14. The Holy Spirit proceeds forth
from both the Father and the Son and is eternal John 15:26.

We BelieveMAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION Man is a created
being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s
transgression and fall,sin came into the world. “all have sinned, and come
short of the glory of God” “As it is written, There is none righteous, no,
not one.” Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the work
of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man
back to God Rom. 5:12; Rom. 3:23; 1 John 3:8.Salvation is the gift of God
to man, separate from works and the law, and is made operative by grace
through faith in Jesus Christ,producing works acceptable to God Eph. 2:8.

We BelieveETERNAL LIFE AND THE NEW BIRTH Man’s first step
toward salvation is godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The New Birth is
necessary to all men, and when experienced, produces eternal life 2 Cor.
7:10;John 3:3-5; 1 John 5:12.

We BelieveWATER BAPTISM Baptism in water is by immersion, is a
direct commandment of our Lord, and is for believers only. The ordinance is
a symbol of the Christian’s identification with Christ in His death,burial, and
resurrection Matt. 28:19; Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12; Acts 8:36-39. The following
recommendation regarding the water baptismal formula is adopted; to wit:
“On the confession of your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ,the Son of God, and
by His authority, I baptize you in the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the
Holy Ghost. Amen.”

We BelieveBAPTISM IN THE HOLY GHOST The Baptism in the Holy
Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to all
believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the New Birth.
This experience is accompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other
tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives utteranceMatt. 3:11; John 14:16,17;
Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38,39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2:4.

We BelieveSANCTIFICATION The Bible teaches that without holiness
no man can see the Lord. We believe in the Doctrine of Sanctification as a
definite, yet progressive work of grace, commencing at the time of regeneration
and continuing until the consummation of salvation at Christ’s return Heb.12:14;
1 Thess. 5:23; 2 Peter 3:18; 2 Cor.3:18;Phil. 3:12-14; 1 Cor.1:30.

We BelieveDIVINE HEALING Healing is for the physical ills of the human
body and is wrought by the power of God through the prayer of faith,and by the
laying on of hands. It is provided for in the atonement of Christ, and is the
privilege of every member of the Church today James 5:14,15; Mark 16:18;
Isa. 53:4,5; Matt. 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24.

We BelieveRESURRECTION OF THE JUST AND THE RETURN OF OUR
LORD The angels said to Jesus’ disciples,”this same Jesus, which is taken up
from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into
heaven.” His coming is imminent. When He comes, “the dead in Christ shall
rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall becaught up together with
them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air” Acts 1:11; 1 Thess.4:16,17.
Following the Tribulation, He shall return to earth as King of kings, and Lord of
lords, and together with His saints, who shall be kings and priests, He shall reign
a thousand years Rev. 20:6.

Lutheran churches have grown from the teachings of Martin Luther, whose efforts were to reform the practices and theology of the Roman Catholic church. Lutherans confess the faith of the apostolic Christian Church as it is taught in the three EcumenicalCreeds, Nicene, Apostles’, and Athanasian. Namely, that there is only one true God, and yet in this one God there are three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The key doctrine, or material principle, of the Lutheran church is the doctrine of justification. Lutherans believe that humans are saved from their sins by God's grace alone, through faith alone.
