What we believe and teach

Like Lutherans around the world, we believe that we are saved by the grace of God the Father, through the suffering, death, resurrection and ascension of of his Son, Jesus Christ.

We believe this through the gift of faith confirmed in us by Baptism and the power of the Holy Spirit.  There is nothing we can do to earn God’s favor or to gain eternal life – no need, it is the Father’s gift to us.  He also gifts us to live together in peace, compassion and respect by the power of that same Spirit.

We also believe that the Bible is the source of inspiration and teaching.

What we believe about people

We believe that God loves us:
unconditionally,
without judgement,
without condemning,
taking us as we are for who we are.

God desires our health and well-being and to have a healthy relationship with us
and for us to imitate his love as we love each other.

Lutherans in general

We have been around since the sixteenth century and together world wide, form the largest protestant grouping.

Like most groups, we vary greatly in our beliefs and world views but one thing remains the same among us,
Jesus Christ is God, together with the Father and the Holy Spirit.

It is by God’s grace alone, through faith, that we can enjoy the amazing benefits of being put right with him.
