What We Believe - Why We Gather

God is the source of all life and we gather together as a community of believers to receive and acknowledge God's grace toward us, especially the gift of redemption through Jesus Christ.

We attend church regularly to have fellowship with others who worship Jesus as Lord and Saviour, to hear the Word of God, to receive God's grace through the sacrament of Holy Communion, and to pray for one another and for the world. In this way we receive the inspiration, edification, and spiritual food we need to help us to be instruments of God's love and goodness in our daily lives.

And by doing this we affirm that the truths handed down to us from ancient times by trustworthy witnesses continue to provide us with a positive, reasonable and relevant way of living in the world of the 21st century.


Confession of Faith

As a member church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), we affirm the Confession of Faith from the Constitution of the ELCA, which says in part:

"This church confesses the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

This church confesses Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.

  • Jesus Christ is the Word of God incarnate, through whom everything was made and through whose life, death, and resurrection God fashions a new creation.
  • The proclamation of God’s message to us as both Law and Gospel is the Word of God, revealing judgment and mercy through word and deed, beginning with the Word in creation, continuing in the history of Israel, and centering in all its fullness in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
  • The canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the written Word of God. Inspired by God’s Spirit speaking through their authors, they record and announce God’s revelation centering in Jesus Christ. Through them God’s Spirit speaks to us to create and sustain Christian faith and fellowship for service in the world.

This church accepts the canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of its proclamation, faith, and life.

This church accepts the Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds as true declarations of the faith of this church.

This church confesses the Gospel, recorded in the Holy Scripture and confessed in the ecumenical creeds and Lutheran confessional writings, as the power of God to create and sustain the Church for God’s mission in the world."


The Father

We believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.



The Son

We believe in Jesus Christ,
God's only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.


The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
