What We Believe
Scriptures, Creeds and Confessions
With the ELCA, we affirm our official Confession of Faith is identified in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments (commonly called the Bible); the Apostles’, Nicene and Athanasian Creeds; and the Lutheran confessional writings in the Book of Concord as the basis for our teaching.
This Confession of Faith is more than just words in an official document. Every Sunday in worship we hear God’s word from the Scriptures, pray as Jesus taught us and come to the Lord’s Table expecting to receive the mercies that the Triune God promises.
