There is one true God. The true God is One God in Three Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 13:14)

The Bible is God's trustworthy and true Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Good News of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the only rule and guide for Christian teaching and life for all people in every place and at every time. (2 Timothy 3:15-17)

God Created and Cares for our World. God created all things in His wisdom and power. He continues to care for His creation today. (Genesis 1:1, Matthew 6:25-33)

God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.

God the Holy Spirit works to bring people to believe in Jesus. The Holy Spirit also works to make us more like Jesus. (John 14:26, John 15:26, Romans 8:9, Galatians 5:22-23)
God saves people by GRACE through FAITH in Jesus, not by good works. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

God claims us as his own by washing away our sins in baptism. (Titus 3:5)

God sustains our Christian life by continually forgiving and strengthening us by his Word and by Jesus' body and blood in the Lord's Supper. (John 17:17, Matthew 26:26-28)

God calls us to a life of following Jesus. Through His power, we strive to reject our own sinful desires and living out the desires of the Holy Spirit. (1 Peter 2:21, Galatians 5:16)

God calls and equips all of his people to tell the Good News of Jesus by word and actions. (Matthew 28:18-20)
