What We Believe

Being Lutheran, we at Bethlehem accept and teach the Bible-based teaching of Martin Luther that inspired the Reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teachings of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases:

  • Grace alone: God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him, and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.
  • 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.
  • Scripture alone: The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and the norm for Christian doctrine.

We are proud members of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. For more information on what we believe check out:
