Advent Church DrawingOur Beliefs

A Confessional Church

The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) accepts the Scriptures as the inspired and inerrant Word of God, and subscribes unconditionally to all the symbolical books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church as a true and unadulterated statement and exposition of the Word of God.
 
We accept the Confessions because they are drawn from the Word of God and on that account regard their doctrinal content as a true and binding exposition of Holy Scripture and as authoritative for all pastors, congregations and other church workers of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
 
Mission Statement

The mission of this congregation shall be to confess and promote:

Faith in the Triune God – by seeking a knowledge of God through faith in His free and unmerited grace, offered to all in Jesus Christ.

Works of righteousness done out of love for God and His grace – by providing for the religious instruction of those committed to our spiritual care, according to the confessional standards of the Evangelical Lutheran Church.

The spiritual fellowship of the Church in Word and Sacrament – by preaching the Word of God and rightly administering the sacraments, manifesting the unity of our faith in Jesus Christ in the celebration of the Lord’s Supper, fostering Christian love, and by extending a helping hand to those who are in need.

Justification by faith – by assisting in the witness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world.

A right understanding and exercise of Christian liberty – by faithfully carrying out our vocational callings in church and society to the glory of God and in service to our neighbors.
