Statements of Belief
Summary: Statements of Belief of Trinity Lutheran Church and School
The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod is a mission-oriented and Bible-based denomination that confesses the historic, traditional Christian faith in the Triune God.
We teach the love of the Triune God; the Father who created all that exists; Jesus, God’s Son, who became man to suffer, die, and rise again for the world’s redemption; and the Holy Spirit who brings people to faith and new life through His Word and Sacraments.
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the inspired and written Word of God and the only rule and norm of faith and of practice.
We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. We are called to defend, protect, and value all human life. (Ps 139)
We believe that God creates each person male or female. We believe that biological sex and gender are the same thing. (Gen. 1:26-27)
We believe that marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, lifelong, exclusive union. (Gen. 2:18-24)
We believe that sexual activity outside of Biblical marriage is sinful. (Matt 15:18-20; 1 Cor. 6:9-10)
We believe God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. (Acts 3:19-21; Rom 10:9-10; 1 Cor. 6:9-11)
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31)
We believe that hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed towards any individual are to be renounced.
These beliefs are at the core of our church and school. While we do not discriminate or deny admission to students and families whose beliefs are not aligned with our own, students who attend Trinity will be taught about our beliefs and are expected to participate in the instruction as part of their overall education. Parents who wish to learn more about joining the church, attending adult instruction classes, or who wish to speak with our Pastor should contact the church or school office.
