What is a "Lutheran?"

A diversity of faith traditions make up what the world knows as "Christianity." In today's world, we cannot avoid choosing how we will follow Jesus in his mission to love and bless our world with the grace of God. All Christian faith traditions stand together in accepting the risen Jesus of Nazareth as God's Son, the One who has come to free us from our brokenness and give us life in God's Spirit. Being Lutheran is one dynamic fabric of the quilt of followers of Jesus.

Lutherans are Christians who shape our life together as a church by accepting historic confessions which form our participation in the world. These confessional documents are built upon our firm belief that:

  • We are saved by the grace of God alone--not by anything we do;
  • Our salvation is through faith alone--we only need to trust God made known in Christ who promises us forgiveness, life and salvation; and
  • The Bible is the norm for faith and life--the true standard by which teachings and doctrines are to be judged.
