At St. Paul's we believe, teach and confess that Jesus Christ is the Son of God
who came and walked among us 2000 years ago. We believe that He was
crucified on a cross, bearing the sins of all people and making sole and
sufficient atonement for all of our transgressions. There is no other
way to attain salvation except through faith in Christ.
We believe, teach and confess that the Holy Bible is the inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God and that no one can know or understand God except through that which is
taught there. We deny the inspiration or truth of any teaching which
contradicts the Word of God.
We believe, teach and confess that the Lutheran Confessions found in the
Book of Concord are correct explanations of the Word of God. We also
accept the three ecumenical creeds of the Church; the Apostles Creed, the
Nicene Creed and the Athanasian Creed, as correct statements of the truth
revealed by God in Christ Jesus.
We believe, teach and confess that the local congregation is the right form
of the Kingdom of God on earth. No human authority may bind the
conscience of the congregation, not does any other human institution have any
claim upon the rights or property of the congregation.
