What We Believe

Our Savior Lutheran holds to the Christian faith as taught in Sacred Scripture

and set forth in the ancient creeds of Christendom and the confessions of the Lutheran Church included in the Book of Concord (1580). We believe that there is one God who reveals Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, became a man that He might offer His innocent life in our place as the ransom price for the salvation of humanity.

The risen Christ on Easter Sunday

It is our firm conviction that the Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God and that the prophets and apostles who composed the sixty-six books of the Bible were inspired by God the Holy Spirit in such a way that each and every word which they wrote is, in fact, the Word of God. Therefore, the Bible is the only reliable, authoritative source of Truth about God and His plan for the salvation of humanity.

We believe the Biblical message of Law and Gospel. The Law declares that with the fall of our first parents Adam and Eve into sin every human being became sinful by nature and thus completely unable to earn or even contribute to his own justification before God. By nature we are all spiritually blind, dead, and enemies of God. The Gospel proclaims that God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

Our faith is God's gift to us, created and sustained through the means of grace which He has established -the Gospel in Word and Sacrament. Accordingly the life of this congregation is that of a family of forgiven sinners who come together around the preaching and teaching God's Word, the cleansing water of Holy Baptism, and the true Body and Blood of Christ in the Sacrament of Holy Communion.

We believe that Jesus will come again to judge the living and the dead. We eagerly anticipate the Day of His Coming and yearn for the joy of eternal life in heaven with Him.
