Community of Faith confesses, teaches, and holds fast to the following:

 

We believe in the Triune God (Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14):

  • The Father, Creator of all that exists (Genesis 1:1, Hebrews 11:3);
  • Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over sin, death, and the devil (1 Timothy 1:15, 1 John 2:2); and
  • The Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God’s Word and the Sacraments (1 Corinthians 12:3, John 3:5).

 

We confess and teach the basics of the Christian faith summarized in four brief phrases of the Reformation of the 16th Century—relevant for the past, present, and future church: Grace Alone, Faith Alone, Scripture Alone, and Christ Alone.

 

Grace Alone

God loves all people, even though sinful, rebellious, and undeserving of His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love
the unlovable and save the ungodly (Romans 5:6, Titus 3:4-7).

 

Faith Alone

By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him (Ephesians 2:8, John 3:16).

 

Scripture Alone

The Bible is God’s inspired and inerrant Word; it reveals both law and gospel; it points us to the only savior of the world —Jesus Christ—and is the sole rule, norm, and authority for Christian life. We believe the Word of God— the Word (Jesus Christ), the proclaimed Word (the Gospel) and the Written Word (the Bible)—is the source and authority for our life of faith (Romans 10:17, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Timothy 3:16).

 

Community of Faith shall embrace and conduct its operations and ministries in accordance with the Bible. The Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds, and the Book of Concord, attest to the witness of the Bible and will be used as guiding expressions of the Christian faith.

 

Christ Alone

There is by no other name or way where sins can be forgiven, our relationship with God restored, and eternal life given other than Jesus Christ alone (John 14:6, Acts 4:12, John 3:36).
