We Believe in God.

We believe that the Triune God - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - is our creator (Genesis 1:1-2:2; John 1:1-3). We believe that God loves us and that he doesn't want us to suffer, but that we enjoy life with him and with one another forever (Ezekiel 33:11).

We Believe in God the Holy Spirit, and we believe his Word.

We believe that the Bible is God's holy and perfect word (2 Timothy 3:16; Proverbs 30:5). We believe that God gave the books of Scripture as the means by which we would know him.

We Believe in God the Father, who is our Creator and Preserver.

We believe the Bible's clear teaching that God created our universe (Genesis 1-2) and continues to sustain it (Matthew 6-7). We believe that God created humans to live in perfect harmony with him and with one another.

We believe the Bible's clear teaching that all humans beings are now born sinful. We show our sinfulness through our actions daily (Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:23) and we deserve to suffer the eternal consequences of our sins (Romans 6:23). We are naturally estranged from and hostile toward God (Romans 1-2,7).

We Believe in God's Son Jesus, and his Gospel.

The Bible also clearly teaches that God's will is not for us to die, but rather that we live (1 Timothy 2:3,4).

We believe that God gave his Son Jesus to save us from eternal death - to be our Savior (John 3:16). Through Jesus we have forgiveness and the promise of eternal life. We have this forgiveness by faith, or trust in God. This faith is not something we can earn, rather it is a GIFT from God (Ephesians 2:8,9) through which He freely offers the forgiveness and life which Jesus earned for us.

Grace of God is a theologically orthodox, missionally directed Christian church.

We hold the three ecumenical creeds (Apostles' CreedNicene CreedAthanasian Creed) and the Lutheran Confessions to be faithful expressions of God's inspired truth revealed to us in the Bible. In God's perfect Word, a Savior who is perfect in every way is revealed to us. The Bible itself therefore stands over the church's confessions in matters of faith and teaching.
