Epiphany Lutheran is a member of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (Synod comes from the Greek words that mean “walking together.”). To learn more about our church body, visit Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, Beliefs and Practices.
A brief summary of the Lutheran faith can be summed up through the ‘Solas’ penned by Martin Luther that spurred on the Reformation of the Christian Church.
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. Grace (unmerited favor) is a gift given to us by God through the work and life of Jesus Christ for us.
The Bible is God’s inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ and creates faith. Our lives are centered around speaking, hearing, and responding to God’s word as it guides our lives and beliefs.
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 the work of the Holy Spirit. Faith is trusting in the promises of God.
We believe that the central theme of the Bible is all about Jesus from beginning to end. Jesus’ rescue mission is to bring us back into a right relationship with God. Through Him and through Him alone is that accomplished through the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus. Christ lives in us and we live by faith in Him.
To God be the glory!
