  • The Bible is the holy, infallible, inerrant Word of God.
  • God has revealed himself as a Triune God: one God in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • God created all things in six days and rested on the seventh day.
  • Although created good, man fell into sin through rebellion against God.
  • All men are now born in sin and doomed to hell unless they are rescued by God.
  • Jesus Christ came into the world to rescue mankind.
  • Jesus died on the cross to pay the price for all people's sin.
  • Jesus rose from the dead to assure us of victory over sin, death, and the devil.
  • Salvation is entirely the work of God and is given to us as a gift through grace which is undeserved love.
  • Salvation does not depend on our good works.
  • The Great Commission of Jesus to his church is to preach the saving truth of the forgiveness of sins.
  • The Gospel, as it comes to us through the Word and Sacraments (Baptism and the Lord's Supper) is the only means through which the Holy Spirit gives and sustains faith.
  • All who believe in Jesus as their Savior will enjoy eternal life in heaven with him.
