What We Believe as Members of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod

 

Overview
The Lutheran Church is part of the Christian Church and takes its name from Martin Luther, the 16th century reformer who stressed that the Bible is the only source of the teachings of God, and that only through faith in Jesus Christ can one be saved.

Concordia Lutheran Church is affiliated with The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod, founded in 1847 and is based on God's Word (the Bible), the Sacraments and world mission work.  Through the Synod and Northwest District, we send missionaries around the world, train church workers and publish Christian literature and materials. 


Belief and Practice

With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.

 

Being "Lutheran"

Our congregations accept and preach the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.
