What we Believe

From What Lutheran's Believe

  • We believe in one true God
    Lutherans share the belief of all other Christians that the one true God has made himself known as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that God loves all people
    Lutherans believe that God loves every human being, even though none of us deserve his love.
  • We believe in Jesus Christ
    Jesus Christ is God's Son. Because he loves the world, God sent his Son Jesus to make things right between God and us. Jesus took the blame for the sins of all people. Jesus died for everybody. Jesus also broke the power of death by becoming alive again.
  • We believe God's forgiveness is a free gift
    Because of Jesus, God has forgiven all sins of all people. God offers his forgiveness to everyone as a free gift. We don't have to earn God's forgiveness or pay for it. It is ours when we believe in Jesus as our Saviour. God offers us his forgiveness in the good news about Jesus, and in baptism and holy communion.
  • We believe what the Bible says
    The Bible is the word of God. So Lutherans accept the Bible as the authority that decides what they are to believe and how they should live. Lutherans believe that the good news about Jesus is the key to the whole Bible.
