What We Believe


  • God is a triune God – three in one. God the Father created the heavens and the earth. God the Son, Jesus Christ, our Savior, is both God and man. God the Holy Spirit spreads God’s love and moves us to live our lives in Christ.

  • The Bible is God’s word and it provides guidance as we strive to live more Christ-like lives.

  • We celebrate the sacraments of Holy Communion and Baptism.

  • We believe that we are saved by grace. Grace is God’s never-ending, undeserved love for all people.

  • Individual Confession and Absolution as well as Pastoral Counseling, are available by appointment.
