What We Believe

The Bible is God’s true, inspired Word. God gave the writers the exact thoughts and words to write (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21). While nature’s beauty and humanity’s conscience tell of a god, only the Bible can reveal who the true God is and what he has done to save us (1 Corinthians 2:9, 2 Timothy 3:15). God uses the Bible to create and strengthen faith in Jesus as Savior (John 20:31, Romans 10:17) and to guide Christians through life (Psalm 119:105). Therefore, the Bible provides all of our teachings.

 

All human beings are conceived and born sinful (Psalm 51:5). No one has the natural desire or ability to believe in God or live a perfect life (1 Corinthians 2:14, Psalm 14:2-3, Romans 8:7). Sin separates people from God and earns death in hell (Isaiah 59:2, Romans 3:23; 6:23).

Jesus Christ is both God and our Savior (Matthew 1:21, 23). He becomes true man and is born to obey God perfectly (Galatians 4:4-5). Jesus is tempted in every way just like we are, but never sins (Hebrews 4:15, John 8:46). Jesus lives a perfectly God-pleasing life (Matthew 3:17).

Jesus saved us by offering his sinless life as payment for all of our sins (1 John 2:2, Isaiah 53:6). Then, Jesus physically rose from the dead to declare us forgiven! (Romans 4:25) This payment becomes yours by faith that trusts Jesus’ saving work (2 Corinthians 5:21, Romans 3:22, Ephesians 2:8-9).
 

Still have questions? If you have any specific questions about what we believe and teach, please, feel free to contact our Pastor; he is more than happy to share the Bible’s teachings with you and answer any questions you may have. He also offers Bible Information Classes for those interested in learning more about what Immanuel Lutheran believes and teaches. (He will not pressure you into making a commitment, nor does taking the class obligate you into joining our congregation).
