We believe human beings were created holy, without fault by God, but lost that perfection through disobedience. God loves us in spite of our rebellion and sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the price for the sins of all people by his suffering, death, and resurrection. We cannot do anything to earn forgiveness or salvation. They are the gift of God through faith in Jesus. The source for what we believe and teach is the Holy Bible, the inspired Word of God. We believe that the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is the One True God. The Holy Spirit calls us to faith through the Means of Grace, which are Gods' Word, Baptism, and the Lords' Supper. Everyone who relies on Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins and eternal life is a member of the true Christian Church. With Gods's help, we seek to live as his people and to obey the command to love one another as he has loved us. We believe that God's love reaches out to all people, regardless of nationality, race, or ethnic background. The Lord has called us to share his love and make disciples of all people.
