Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church 

Our Position

Confessional Position
We believe, teach and confess without reservation the Canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inerrant, verbally inspired Word of God, 1 Corinthians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21.

We believe that the Bible is authoritative, sufficient, clear, and efficacious for faith and life.

We confess the Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds and the Symbols of the Lutheran Church as published in the Book of Concord of 1580, because they are a true exposition of the teachings of the Word of God. We subscribe to the Brief Statement of 1932 as agreed upon by the Evangelical Lutheran Synodical Conference.

In keeping with Scripture, we practice Closed Communion. Since participation in Holy Communion is a confession of faith, those who have publicly declared their unity with Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church in doctrine and practice are encouraged to receive the Sacrament together with us.

We acknowledge that, while the choice of forms of worship is a matter of Christian liberty and uniformity in them is not essential, the Biblical essentials must nonetheless be preserved. Good order must be observed, no false impression should be given, and the Law and precious Gospel dare not be obscured or hindered but shall be clearly set forth in a worshipful manner. Therefore, we gladly retain the use of the historic Divine Liturgy used by Christians worldwide for centuries. We follow the agenda of The Lutheran Hymnal, published in 1941 by the Evangelical Lutheran Synodical Conference.

The Church and Contemporary Christianity
Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church therefore rejects the secular and pagan influences which have unfortunately become evident in so much of modern Christianity. We therefore stand against modern attempts to combine Christianity with secular disciplines and/or pagan philosophies. This includes such movements as Liberation Theology (Christianity + Marxism), the Social Gospel Movement (Christianity + Socialism), the Church Growth Movement (Christianity + marketing theory), Biblical counseling (Christianity + behavioral psychology), Feminist Theology (Christianity + feminism), etc. We also reject the popular trend in much of today's Lutheranism toward an undiscerning embrace of Reformed as well as Romanistic influences and practices.
