Our church body, The Lutheran Church –
What do Lutherans Believe?
As followers of Jesus Christ our beliefs are grounded solely in the Bible. A detailed confession of the beliefs of the Lutheran Church is recorded in a book entitled “The Book of Concord,” Our basic beliefs are summarized in the following statements of faith:
- The Bible is God’s holy, inspired, inerrant Word (II Peter 1:21).
- God is the creator of all things (Genesis1:1).
- God is three persons in one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19).
- God is almighty, holy, righteous, without sin, and merciful (Leviticus 19:2; Matthew 19:26; Titus 3:5).
- God’s Law, as revealed in the 10 Commandments, convicts us all of sin and our need for a Savior (Romans 3:20, 23).
- God’s Gospel, as revealed in the life of Jesus Christ, grants us the free gift of forgiveness of our sins and eternal life (Ephesians 2:8-
- Jesus is the true God and the true man who died on the cross and rose again for the salvation of all people (John 3:16).
- A relationship with Jesus through faith is the only way to eternal life (John 14:6).
- God’s grace and love as well as our faith in Him are freely granted us by God through His means of grace: The Word and Sacraments, Baptism and Communion (Acts 2:38; John 20:31; and I Corinthians 10:16)
