Emanuel’s Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (www.elca.org)
We believe in the Trinity; God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We confess God as Father and Creator of the universe, Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and that the Holy Spirit calls, gathers, enlightens, sanctifies, and keeps the whole Christian Church on earth.
The Good News of Jesus Christ is the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. Through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, human beings can be reconciled to God.
We believe that the Bible, the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired, written Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of the church's proclamation, faith, and life centering in Jesus Christ.
We believe that all human beings are born in sin and cannot live the life God intends on our own, but we believe that we are justified by grace through faith on account of Christ.
We understand that God comes to us through the Means of Grace, the Word of God and the sacraments of baptism and communion. Through them, God helps us understand and receive the benefits of a relationship with God.
We welcome and encourage all baptized Christians believe that Jesus is truly present in the bread and wine and that the forgiveness of sins is freely given in Christ to commune with us during worship.
