We accept the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of the church’s proclamation, faith, and life. We confess the Triune God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe humanity is fallen, that all people are sinners, and are therefore in need of salvation and divine redemption through faith in Christ. We believe that those who repent of their sins and believe in Jesus Christ as Savior are "saved" and "regenerated" by the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two sacraments to the church: Holy Baptism and Holy Communion. We believe that Christ is truly present in these sacraments and that they should be administered regularly.
