We are saved by Grace alone
through Faith alone
for Christ’s sake alone
according to the Word alone.
We preach Christ and Him Crucified for you. We believe the Bible. With the universal Christian Church, we teach and respond to the love of the Triune God: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
We preach Christ and Him Crucified for you.
With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God’s Word and the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.
We believe and teach the Bible.
Our church body confesses the historic Christian faith, a faith built on “the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone” (Eph. 2:20). LCMS doctrine is Scripture-based and our congregations accept and preach the Bible-based teachings of Dr. Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. Lutheran doctrine is summarized in The Book of Concord: The Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, and is simply presented in Luther’s Small Catechism.
500 years after the Reformation, it’s still all about Jesus!
