REDEEMER     LUTHERAN

ONE REDEEMER. REDEMPTION FOR ALL.

A SUMMARY OF LUTHERAN TEACHINGS

The teachings of the Lutheran church are not new. They are the teachings of the Bible. Thus the Lutheran Church is not a new church. It is a church whose teaching is based on the words written in God's Word. As a Lutheran church we emphasize these three great truths of Martin Luther: by grace alone, through faith alone, and on the basis of Scripture alone. Below is a 10 points summary of what Lutherans believe and confess. This is a statement of our core beliefs at Redeemer Lutheran. 


1. We believe in one God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


2. We believe that all the canonical books of the Old and New Testament  are the inspired, inerrant Word of God, true  in every part and God's divine message for every generation.


3. We believe that God created this world in six days. It was perfect, without corruption or death..

4. We believe that Adam and Eve brought sin into the world disobeying the Lord's command. When sin entered the world, it brought all the curses of sin, sickness, and pain, sorrow and death, earthly death and eternal death in hell.

5. We believe that God saved us, purely out of his wondrous love, by sending his own Son to fulfill the law perfectly for us and pay the full price of sin  by dying for us.

6. We believe that Jesus Christ, true God and true man, bore all the sins of the world upon the cross and that he gives eternal life in the glories of heaven to all who simply trust in him faith. All who reject him face eternal judgment and condemnation in hell. 

7. We believe in the power of baptism to create faith and make us members of God's family. This sacrament was meant for all people, including infants who are sinners in need of Christ's sacrifice and in whom the Holy Spirit works the miracle of faith as in all of us.

8. We believe in the true presence of Christ's body and blood in, with, and under the bread and wine of Holy Communion for the forgiveness of sins.

9. We believe in the gift of God's indwelling Holy Spirit to bless us with the fruits of faith, love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control, that we might live as his children and glorify our Father in heaven.

10. We believe that Jesus will return one day to raise all the dead, judge all the world, and glorify all who believe and take them to be with him forever in heaven.
