TCN Statement of Faith
I am first and foremost a sinner who believes in Jesus Christ as his only Savior from sin.
I believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible, written Word of God and the only rule and norm for faith and life.
I accept all the Symbolical Books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church (the Lutheran Confessions) as a true and unadulterated statement and exposition of the Word of God.
I believe there is only one God – the triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit – “one God in three persons and three persons in one God.”
I believe that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, that He healed the lame, the deaf, the blind and that He raised the dead back to life.
I believe that He was crucified, died and was buried, that He rose from the grave three days later, and that He ascended into Heaven.
I believe that Jesus Christ alone is the Savior of the world, as it is written, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
I believe in the Holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body and the life everlasting.
I believe God works faith by the power of the Holy Spirit through His Word and Sacraments.
