What We Believe

For God so loved the world that he gave is only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life. John 3:16 NRSV


All Saints Lutheran Church confesses the Triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

All Saints Lutheran Church confesses Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the Gospel as power for the salvation of all who believe.

 

All Saints Lutheran Church believes Jesus Christ is the Word of God incarnate, through whom everything was made and through whose life, death and resurrection God fashions a new creation.

 

All Saints Lutheran Church confesses that the proclamation of God’s message to us as both Law and Gospel is the Word of God, revealing judgment and mercy through word and deed, beginning with the Word in creation, continuing in the history of Israel, and centering in all its fullness in the person and work of Jesus Christ.

 

All Saints Lutheran Church believes the canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the written Word of God.  Inspired by God’s Spirit speaking through their authors, they record and announce God’s revelation centering in Jesus Christ.  Through them God’s Spirit speaks to us to create and sustain Christian faith and fellowship for service in the world.

 

All Saints Lutheran Church accepts the canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of its proclamation, faith, and life.

All Saints Lutheran Church accepts the confessional writings in the Book of Concord, namely, the Apology of the Augsburg Confession, the Smalcald Articles, and the Treatise, the Small Catechism, the Large Catechism, and the Formula of Concord, as further valid interpretations of the faith of the Church.

 

All Saints Lutheran Church confesses the Gospel, recorded in the Holy Scriptures and confessed in the ecumenical creeds and Lutheran confessional writings, as the power of God to create and sustain the Church for God’s mission in the world.
