What We Believe

Redeemer Lutheran Church is a confessional church. What it means to be confessional is that we believe, teach, and confess the doctrine of the Holy Scriptures as expressed in the three ecumenical creeds of the Church (Apostle’s, Nicene, and Athanasius) and expressed in the Book of Concord (1580).

A concise and true expression of what we teach is found in the Apostles Creed:

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth.

And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord; who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary; suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; the holy catholic Church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body; and the life everlasting. Amen.

For a fuller expression of what we believe, teach, and confess at Redeemer Lutheran Church read the Augsburg Confession of 1530 found here.
