We Believe
Association of Free Lutheran Congregations

As a free and Lutheran congregation we believe:

  • The Bible is God’s Word, inerrant and trustworthy in all aspects and is an infallible source of guidance for the Church and for every believer.
  • According to Scripture, we are all born in sin and have need of God’s forgiveness.
  • God seeks to bring forgiveness to all, but as a just God, will not extend that forgiveness to those who will not place their faith and trust in Him.
  • To receive God’s forgiveness, we must place our faith in the One who provided the way for us to be forgiven, Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
  • The Church Universal consists of all those throughout the world who have faith in Jesus Christ.
  • Believers need to be a part of a local congregation of believers (a church).
  • The local congregation is God’s design: each congregation is gifted by God to do the work of helping believers use their gifts so that everyone will grow into mature believers.
  • Local congregations function best when they take responsibility for their own affairs and serve their communities as God directs them.
  • Local congregations should work together with other congregations when necessary in order to accomplish tasks greater than a single congregation can accomplish, such as: missions home and abroad, orphanages, medical work, evangelistic efforts, publishing Christian literature and Sunday School material, and other works of mercy.
