Believe, Teach, and Confess

Believe, Teach, and Confess Our Faith

We believe and confess that:

  • the Canonical books of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired Word of God and the only infallible rule of faith and practice;
  • the Three Ecumenical Creeds (Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian Creed) are faithful testimonies to the truth of the Holy Scriptures;
  • the Book of Concord (1580) is in agreement with the one scriptural faith. The Book of Concord consists of: 
    • The Augsburg Confession
    • The Apology of the Augsburg Confession
    • The Smalcald Articles
    • The Treatise on the Power and Primacy of the Pope
    • The Small Catechism
    • The Large Catechism
    • The Epitome of the Formula of Concord
    • The Solid Declaration of the Formula of Concord
