What We Believe

At Abiding Savior Lutheran Church we believe in the triune God; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that God the Father is our Creator loves his creation and longs for all his children to come to salvation through Jesus Christ, his son.

We believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who became fully human and lived a perfect life so that he could take the sins of the world upon himself and to suffer and die with them, on the third day after his death he rose from the grave. He did this in order to secure the forgiveness of sins for those who believe in him so that we might have victory over sin, death, and the power of the devil.

We believe in the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit works faith as a gift in the hearts of people through God’s Word and Sacraments.

We believe that the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God and serves as the norm and rule for our faith and life. The Bible’s purpose is to introduce us to Jesus our Savior so that we can find hope and strength as we live our lives for him who gave his life for us.

As Lutherans we believe that we are saved by Grace alone. This means that God loves the people he has created despite their sinfulness and rebellion. To us people who don’t deserve his love he sent Jesus to die with our sin and rise again victorious over it.

As Lutherans we believe that we are saved by Faith alone. Because we believe that Jesus died for our sins and so forgives our sins we trust in his power to be our only Savior from death. Through the work of the Holy Spirit God creates faith in our hearts so that we can confess Jesus as our Lord.

As Lutherans we believe that the only way we come to faith in Jesus is through the Bible alone. The Bible is God’s inerrant and infallible Word that leads us to salvation and instructs us as to how God desires and empowers us to live out our lives now.
