What We Believe
We believe that we all have sinned and deserve only death. Jesus died for our sins and ransomed us from death so that we may live with him in Heaven. Our faith is a free gift from God. Praise be to God for the gift of eternal life.
These creeds add nothing to the Bible, but restate the Truth of God in the Bible. Each was brought about because of an attack on the faith. We still use them today to guard our faith.

Luther's Small Catechism
This was originally published by Martin Luther to aid in the education of the church. We continue to use it for education today and it is also an excellent statement of our faith.
