Our Faith

Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church is a group of Confessional Lutherans gathering together around the only true God as He comes to us and serves us with His Word and Sacrament.

creed5In His Word the Triune God shows us the nature of our real problem (called “Sin” in the Bible) how it affects us and the world we live in. His written Word is the only source where we can know His will and the way He has shown His love to fallen humanity.

In His Word He demonstrates how the Father sent His Only-begotten Son into this world, take on human flesh, live without sin in our place, suffer the punishment that we and the rest of the world deserved, and rose physically from the dead. Jesus Christ is the only Redeemer and Savior.

In His written Word He tells us of how the Holy Spirit comes to us through the Scriptures to convict us of our sin and give the gift of faith in Jesus Christ upon us. We are forgiven and saved not by what we do, but only by the free grace of God in Christ.

In His Scriptures He tells us that through this gift of faith in the only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ, we are declared righteous before the Father, adopted as children of the Father, and made heirs to the resurrection of the body and eternal life.

In His Word He instituted Baptism, the Office of the Keys, and the Sacrament of the Altar and attached His promise to these means of spoken word and physical elements. The promise He gave is that through His Word and Sacrament He would call sinners to repentance and faith in Christ and eternal salvation.

So we gather together around His Word and Sacrament where He richly feeds us, forgives us, and secures us for eternal life.

On the day He rose from the dead, Jesus said to His disciples:

 “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things. Luke 24:46-48
