We Still Believe
There is only one real God – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  The Church calls this God "Triune," that is "one God in three Persons."

The Bible is God’s Word from beginning to end, true and without error in everything it says.

The Bible clearly teaches people all they need to know to get to heaven.

The universe was made by God out of nothing, in six consecutive days of normal length, by the power of his word.

God's Son, Jesus is -- at one and the same time -- really God himself and really a human being in one person.  He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, and he is the only one who saves people from sin, death, the devil, the grave, and hell.

All who believe in Jesus alone will be saved.  And this faith is nothing we can generate from ourselves; it is the gift and work of the Holy Spirit of God.

God is pro-life.  Therefore abortion and euthanasia are murder, because they involve the willful taking of the real life of a human being.

God is pro-marriage – a life-long union between one man and one woman. Therefore anything that pretends to be marriage or uses sex outside of marriage is immorality and adultery, and it is condemned by God.

All people are sinners in God’s eyes, who deserve to be punished.  But God offers forgiveness to all through Jesus’ perfect life and innocent death on a cross.

God's total forgiveness is proclaimed and given through his Good News, through baptism, and through the Lord’s Supper.

The blessing of baptism is meant for all people – including infants.

Jesus, who rose again from the dead on the third day and went back into heaven, will return as Judge.  No human being knows, or can know, the day or date of his return.

When he comes again Jesus, who rose again in his body, will also raise, in their bodies, all who have ever died. Believers in Jesus will go, body and soul, into heaven. Those who do not believe in him will go, body and soul, into hell.
