What we Believe

Abstract Background

We believe the Bible (the canonical books of the Old and New Testaments as a whole and in all their parts) to be the divinely inspired, revealed, and inerrant Word of God and joyfully submit to it as the only infallible authority in all matters of faith and life (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:19-21).

We believe the historic Lutheran Confessions to be true statements of the doctrine of the Word of God and regard them as normative for our theology. We believe that Ascension Lutheran Church exists for God's use in teaching His Law (showing our sin) and in proclaiming His Gospel (His offer of grace).

We believe in Jesus Christ and the Good News of forgiveness of sins through His atonement. We believe in the Holy Spirit as Comforter, Counselor, and Guide, working through the means of grace (the Word and Sacraments)-(John 14:25-26).

We believe that in confident reliance upon the Triune God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), we can be brought to a new life here and ultimately be received into His everlasting Kingdom.
