We seek to know Christ as Lord, to show Him to those we meet, and to grow new disciples of Jesus who make more disciples by the power of the Holy Spirit.


The Bible

We believe the Bible is God’s holy, inspired, and inerrant Word. God’s Word is alive and active, applicable for every area of life, and the final authority for Christian faith and living. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; John 17:17; Hebrews 4:12)


We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1; John 10:30; Matthew 28:19)

Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ is God’s eternal Son, who lived a perfect life, died on the cross for the sins of all mankind, rose again from the dead, and will return in power and glory to rule and reign for all eternity. (John 1:1-4; John 3:16-19; Romans 3:23; 5:8, 6:23)


We believe men and women were created in God’s image, but fell into sin and rebelled against God. Therefore, sin entered into the world, causing all people to be deserving of eternal separation from God. We believe that God offers salvation and eternal life to all who repent of their sin and believe in Jesus Christ as their savior. (Romans 5:12; Romans 10:9-10; Acts 3:19; Acts 4:12; John 3:16-17)

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit lives in us to convict us of sin, prompt us to seek forgiveness in Jesus, comfort us, teach us, equip us, and enable us to live godly lives. The Holy Spirit also unites all believers into the church, through which God’s mission is carried out on earth. (Romans 8:9-11; John 16:7-8; Galatians 5:22-25; Romans 12:5; Matthew 28:19-20; Ephesians 4:11-13)

The Ancient Creeds

We accept and adhere to the three ancient creeds of the Christian church – the Apostles Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. These creeds have anchored the historic Christian Church throughout the centuries and continue to instruct us today.

Bible Doctrine

We accept Luther’s Small Catechism and the Unaltered Augsburg Confession as true expressions of the Christian faith and accurate explanations of the teachings of Scripture. Among the most important doctrines we uphold is that of the need for every human to be born again through Jesus Christ for salvation, as Jesus taught in John 3:1-17. We adhere to Luther's Biblical views of baptism and the Lord's Supper. We promote the Biblical teaching of Christ's Second Coming and hold that true believers are secure in Christ forever. 

Christian Piety

We encourage Christian growth, Bible reading, prayer and witnessing (Acts 2:42-47), We believe that true salvation reveals itself in healthy fruit in the life of the believer, and that free and living Christianity involves daily surrender to the ministry of the Holy Spirit. We focus on vibrant prayer lives, daily devotions and building loving Christian communities. We partner with other churches and ministries that exalt Jesus Christ as Lord and believe in an error-free Bible (Hebrews 4:12). We pray for revival and invite Christians to gather together to be a positive force for good in our home communities and around the world.
