We Believe...

... there is only one God
... there is only one reliable source of information
... there is only one true faith

"God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son,
that whoever believes in Him should not perish,
but have eternal life."
-- John 3:16 (ESV)

The basis of all Lutheran teachings is the Bible. Martin Luther and the other reformers wrote a series of documents answering accusations that their teaching was contrary to commonly held beliefs and practices of the 15th century church. These defenses and arguments, based upon the Bible were presented before a series of theological gatherings. Eventually, they were compiled into The Book of Concord. These comprise the doctrine and confession of the Lutheran Church.
