Christ Lutheran Church accepts all the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments as a whole and in all their parts as the divinely inspired, revealed, and inerrant Word of God, and submits to this as the only infallible authority in all matters of faith and life.
As brief and true statements of the doctrines of the Word of God, this Church accepts and confesses the following Symbols, subscription to which shall be required of all its members, both congregations and individuals:
a. The ancient ecumenical Creeds: the Apostolic, the Nicene, and the Athanasian.
b. The unaltered Augsburg Confession and Luther’s Small Catechism.
As further elaboration of and in accord with these Lutheran Symbols, this Church also receives the other documents in the Book of Concord of 1580: the Apology, Luther’s Large Catechism, the Smalcald Articles, and the Formula of Concord; and recognizes them as normative for its theology.
Christ Lutheran Church accepts without reservation the symbolical books of the evangelical Lutheran church, not insofar as but because they are the presentation and explanation of the pure doctrine of the Word of God and a summary of the faith of the evangelical Lutheran Church.
IN AN AGE OF ANXIETY…
we still believe that peace comes from Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
IN AN AGE OF CONFUSION…
we still believe that the Bible is the word of God, inerrant, and infallible.
IN AN AGE OF DOUBT…
we still believe that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
IN AN AGE OF GUILT…
we still believe that Jesus died on the cross to remove the power of sin and Satan.
IN AN AGE OF REASON…
we still believe that God is at work in the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion.
IN AN AGE OF CHANGE…
we still believe in the unchanging Holy Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
