Who are the Lutherans?

The “Lutheran” in our name comes from Martin Luther, the 16th-century monk who started the Reformation of the church, returning it to teachings based on God’s Word, the Bible. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. This means that everything the Bible teaches is correct and true. We believe that it is only through the Bible that we can know the one true God – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – and His will for our lives.

Lutherans teach the “Three Alones”, Grace Alone, Faith Alone and Word Alone. The Bible teaches that we are saved by God’s grace alone, through faith alone. Faith comes through the Word of God alone by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Lutherans believe in God’s grace.

All people are sinners and would perish eternally without God’s help. The good news is that God has provided all of this help as a free gift. God’s saving grace is His undeserved love for all people through the life, death and resurrection of His Son. It is God the Father’s desire for all people to hear His Word, to believe in His Son, Jesus Christ, as their only Savior, and therefore to have eternal life. Jesus lived a holy life in our place and died on the cross for the forgiveness of all our sins. Through this completed work of Jesus, God the Father sees the whole world as not guilty, or justified. This teaching of “justification” is the central truth of the Bible.
