We Still Believe

Ascension Lutheran Congregation is a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, a church body embracing the confessional faith of the Lutheran Reformation.  We believe, teach, and confess the faith in accordance with the Lutheran Confessional writings as these are drawn from the Holy Scriptures.  Standing on this solid foundation We Still Believe:

  •    That God is One and yet reveals Himself as three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  •     That the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God, true and without error. It is our source of truth about our world, ourselves, and our relationship to God and others.

  •     That man was created holy and innocent by God on the 6th day of our world’s history and that man, of his own will, rebelled against God bringing sin and death upon us all.

  •     That God, in great love and mercy, rescued mankind from sin and death by sending His Son, Jesus Christ, true God and true man, born of a virgin mother to save us. This He did by keeping the Law of God perfectly in our place (what we cannot do) and by suffering and dying for mankind’s sin.  Jesus’ rising from the dead guarantees us that God’s justice is fully satisfied, that our sin-debt with God is paid in full!

  •     That this Good News of our Savior and our salvation enters our lives through God’s Word, Holy Baptism, and the Lord’s Supper.

  •     That people who receive Jesus Christ as Savior have been forgiven, will inherit eternal life, and are basking in God’s grace and favor right now.
