As Martin Luther writes:

"I believe that there is on earth a holy little flock and community of pure saints under one head, Christ. It is called together by the Holy Spirit in one faith, mind, and understanding. It possesses a variety of gifts, and yet is united in love without sect or schism. Of this community I also am a part and member, a participant and co-partner in all the blessings it possesses. I was was brought into is by the Holy Spirit and incorporated into  it through the face that I have heard and still hear God's Word, which is the point for entering it."

Kolb & Wengert Translation.

We, as member's of Our Saviour's Lutheran Church have a 
Lutheran Theological Heritage, which means that we confess
the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. as the
 Apostle's CreedNicene Creed, and Athanasian Creed profess.

This church accepts the other confessional writings in the 
Book of Concord, namely, Unaltered Augsburg Confession, 
the Apology of the Augsburg Confession, the Smalcald Articles
and the Treatise, the Small Catechism, the Large Catechism,
 and the Formula of Concord, as further valid interpretations
of the faith of the Church.

​The Scriptures are the cradle of Christ, the only place we go for knowledge of Salvation. Through them, the Holy Spirit speaks to all who will listen. As John 20 states, "these things are written so that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that though believing you may have life in his name." The scriptures are inspired by God that we may know God better, hear the stories of how God's people have lived in relationship with God for generation and how God is at work in the world to restore that which had been lost in our exile from the Garden of Eden.

"For by grace you have been saved through faith,
and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God—
not the result of works, so that no one may boast.
For we are what he has made us,
created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand to be our way of life."
Ephesians 2:8-10

We give thanks for God's saving grace and reflect them in the "Five Solas" of the reformation

    Sola Scriptura      Scripture Alone is the sufficient and final authority for the church. 
    Solus Christus      In God's sight we are justified through Christ Alone.
    Sola Fide              We gain justification and redemption through Faith Alone
    Sola Gratia           We have done nothing to earn this, it comes through God's Grace Alone
    Soli Deo Gloria     Our salvation and everything we do is for God's Glory Alone
