Our Beliefs
  • We believe that the Holy Scriptures are the Word of God and that all things therein, from the first verse to the last verse, are true.
  • We therefore also believe, teach and confess that there is a Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is not a mere man, a “wise man of Nazareth," but that He is the true Son of God and only Savior of the world.
  • We believe that man is justified before God, and eternally saved, through faith in Christ, and not by works.
  • We believe that baptism is not merely a rite of initiation, or an inaugural ceremony, for entry into Christianity, but that it works regeneration (the new birth) and thereby, if it so be that one believes, one receives forgiveness of sins.
  • We believe that in the Lord’s Supper not only the bread and the wine are present as signs and symbols of the body and blood of Christ, but in, with, and under the bread is the true body and in, with, and under the wine is the true blood of Christ, according to His own words, “This is my body, this is my blood".
  • We also believe that God through the called and ordained servant of the Word forgives sins. To be sure, God only can forgive sins, but He does so through man.
  • We furthermore believe that there is a heaven and a hell and a resurrection of all the dead.
  • In brief, we believe everything the Bible teaches. We will also, at the very outset, confess publicly that we can admit no one to the Lord’s Supper who does not profess to believe all these things or rejects a single one of these articles of faith.
