Our Beliefs

We believe and profess:

  • The Canonical books of the Old and New Testament to be the highest authority for guiding our faith and life.
  • The three ecumenical creeds namely: The Apostles’ Creed, The Nicene creed and the Athanasian Creed.
  • The documents of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Book of Concord of 1580 which, as correct expressions of Biblical faith, form the basis of our confessional statements and doctrines:
    • the unaltered Augsburg Confessions;
    • Martin Luther’s Catechisms
    • the Smalcald Articles;
    • The Formula of Concord
  • The unity of God the father, the son and the Holy Spirit.
  • The miraculous human life of the Son of God, His divine being, His intercession for us and His eternal Kingdom.
  • The salvation of sinners through faith in Christ Jesus alone.
  • The work of the Holy Spirit in turning sinners to Christ in sanctifying them.
  • The immortal soul of human beings and the resurrection from the dead.
  • That our Lord Jesus Christ will judge the world with eternal blessings for believers and eternal punishment for the wicked.
