What We Believe

In GodBecoming God's Children

We believe that God created us and all that exists.  God loves us and sustains us in our lives.

God came to earth in human flesh as Jesus Christ, both true God and true man. Jesus’ died on the cross and was resurrected so that we might have forgiveness for our sins and life eternal.

We believe that God is active in the world today through the Holy Spirit inspiring us to be love one and another and forgiving us when we sin.

In Salvation

We believe that salvation happens as God comes to us and we respond.

We are saved by God’s free gift of grace.  We do not deserve it and cannot earn it! We believe in this gift of mercy that comes from God and makes us right with him.  Because we are so blessed, we are to forgive and comfort others as God as forgiven and comforted us. 

Christening at Christ Lutheran Church

In Baptism

We believe Jesus when in Mark 16:6 he says, “he who believes and is baptized will be saved”. Baptism is a public affirmation that sweeps away our old sinful nature and allows a new relationship with God to be born.

Holy Communion

Communion is part of our weekly worship service. We believ

e that Christ is present in the bread and wine of communion. On the night He was betrayed, our Lord Jesus Christ gave bread and wine to his disciples and told them, “Do this in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19. 

In Worship

We begin our service with confession that we have not lived as God wants us to live. We praise God in song and read Bible passages from the old and new Testaments. A sermon follows.

We confess our faith and offer prayers for all believers, the world and all in need. We continue with Holy Communion, a hymn, and depart church to serve God and be a blessing to others.
