What do we believe?
We believe in the Trinity, the verbal inspiration of Holy Scripture, the full deity and humanity of Jesus the Christ/Messiah, the sacrificial blood-death of Jesus on the cross, the reception of forgiveness as our personal possession through repentance and faith in Jesus, and the moral standards by which we are to live. We understand other Christian doctrines such as original sin, conversion, Holy Baptism, Holy Communion, and the end times, (which are understood by the various groups of Christians in different ways), from a historic, Biblically-conservative Lutheran perspective.

For further explanation see What We Believe and In the Beginning.

What is our mission?
It is our goal to live as a congregational family of brothers and sisters in Jesus
* by loving, obeying, and honoring our God,
* by loving and helping one another, and
* by sharing His love and truth with all who will listen.

(This mission statement has not been approved by our board of elders and is subject to change; however, it contains the fundamental strategy of our church community.)
