What We Believe
What We Believe, Teach, and Confess
This congregation accepts without reservation:
The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as the written, verbally inspired, inerrant Word of God and the only rule and norm of faith and of practice.
All the Symbolical Books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church as written in the Book of Concord of 1580 as a true and unadulterated statement and exposition of the Word of God, to wit; the three Ecumenical Creeds (the Apostles’ Creed, The Nicene Creed, the Athanasian Creed), the unaltered Augsburg Confession, the Apology of the Augsburg Confession, the Smalcald Articles, the Large Catechism and Small Catechism of Luther, and the Formula of Concord.
Receiving the Holy Eucharist at Our Savior
Confessional Lutherans believe that the Holy Eucharist (Holy Communion) is truly the Body and Blood of our LORD, JESUS CHRIST, given to repentant sinners to eat and drink for the forgiveness of sin. We also believe that all who partake of the Eucharist show publicly that they agree with the teachings believed, taught, and confessed by the Pastor and the congregation by whom the Sacrament is celebrated and among whom it is distributed.
Therefore, we ask all visitors wishing to commune at our altar to please speak to our Pastor before receiving the Lord's Supper at Our Savior.
