We Believe and Teach

The Lutheran Church believes and teaches that there is one God, Lord of the universe, who made himself known to us in the three persons of the Father, Jesus Christ his son, and the Holy Spirit.

Sin is a reality in our lives. Because of our fallen nature all people are in a state of brokenness with God, and through their own strength are unable to become right with him.

Because of his love for us, God sent Jesus into the world to die for us, to restore us to life, and to bring us into a new relationship with him and with each other.

Forgiveness of sin and eternal life are gifts of God’s grace which are simply received through trust and faith in Jesus Christ.

The Bible is the complete Word of God and the only authority for our teaching. God’s speaks to us through his written word to reveal his loving plan to save us.

The Holy Spirit is the creator and keeper of faith, warming and transforming our heart as we hear God’s Word.  The work of the Holy Spirit is to gather us together as a community of faith, and to sustain us and holding us close to God.

Who is Jesus?

Jesus Christ is the son of God who came into the world 2000 years ago to save us and restore our broken relationship with God and with each other. He came as a real human being; at the same time he is fully divine.

There are these two inseparable natures in the one person, difficult as this may be to comprehend. Jesus died for the removal of our guilt and our full restoration to life. After three days he rose to life again.

God gave him authority to be the Lord of everyone, and because he is alive and present in the world today through his Spirit, he will protect and strengthen and guide all those who trust him. One day he will return again and will be recognised by all.
