What We Believe

The following is a summary of what we as a Lutheran congregation believe, teach and confess. In a world that is increasingly post-modern and as the church continues to adapt its teachings to meet the ever-changing whims of society, we take the time to give a clear, unchanging and substantial presentation of our beliefs.

Baptized Membership

Baptized members are all members who have been baptized in the name of the Tri-une God and who are under the spiritual care of the pastor of this congregation including the children who have not yet been confirmed.

Baptized members strive to conform their lives to their baptismal vows; and avail themselves of the worship, educational and service opportunities of the congregation that will contribute to the development of the Christian faith; and pursue in due time catechetical instruction which will lead to the Rite of Confirmation.

Communicant members strive to conform their entire lives to the rule of God’s Word and make diligent use of the means of grace, exercise their faithful stewardship of God’s gifts, and impart and accept admonition as the need for such admonition becomes apparent.

Communicant members who are 18 years or older are also voting members of the congregation.
