WHO WE ARE
We are People:

WHAT WE BELIEVE
Lutherans are Christians who believe and teach that the Holy Scriptures reveal that Jesus Christ is the core and foundation of our faith.
No person can be acceptable by God based upon their own good works;
Forgiveness of sin, right standing with God, and eternal life is only possible by:
A loving gift of God, through the work of the life, death, and resurrection of Christ.
This gift can be simply obtained only by those who have been gifted by the Holy Spirit to believe and trust Christ.
