What we believe
We believe, teach, and respond 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 Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.
We believe that in, with, and under, the bread and wine we receive the true body and blood of the Lord, Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins. We find strength and forgiveness in the Lord's Supper and promise to amend our lives for service to the Lord. Visitors and guests who share this belief are welcome to participate in the Lord's Supper.
If you would like to know more about what we believe or what we believe about specific issues, we invite you to talk to Pastor Nathan Grewe or check out the "Belief and Practice" section of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod's website
