As Lutheran Christians, the people of St. Luke believe that. . .

The only true God is the Triune God; one God, in three Persons:

  • The Holy Spirit, who brings and keeps people in saving faith in Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:3)

God desires all people to know the truth:

God loves people so much that he sent his only Son Jesus to our world, born as a human, yet fully divine, to live perfectly because we cannot, and paid the penalty of our sin through his death on the cross:

  • Jesus gave his life as the perfect sacrifice for our sins, resulting in our forgiveness and acceptance before God the Father. (Isaiah 53:5; 2 Corinthians 5:21)

The Holy Spirit gives us faith and keeps us faithful through God’s Word and through the sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion:

  • We cannot believe in Jesus or decide to follow him without the assistance of the Holy Spirit. (1 Corinthians 12:3)
  • In Holy Communion, the body and blood of Jesus is present with the bread and wine for baptized Christians to receive. (1 Corinthians 10:16,17)

Disciples of Jesus Christ are equipped and empowered through his Church to serve him by serving others and sharing the good news about his salvation:
