WHAT WE BELIEVE

We Lutherans take our name from Martin Luther. He was a German priest who broke away from the Roman Catholic Church in the early 1500’s. Luther’s writings and teachings sparked the Protestant Reformation.

Through his study of the Bible, Luther helped the Christian Church rediscover the truth that God is loving and that he offers forgiveness and eternal life as a free gift because of Jesus Christ. Luther taught that people, no matter how hard they try, cannot earn God’s forgiveness or a place in heaven. It is a gift that people receive through faith in Jesus Christ.

Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church is a church that is focused on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This Gospel shows us a God that is merciful, forgiving, loving, and dedicated to mankind in a personal way. The Gospel reveals a God that is not angry or full of wrath, but one who desires a deep association with his people.
Our church confesses that the Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God. We believe that the entire Bible focuses on Jesus Christ and that through Him we have eternal life. Our teachings and studies are filled with the Good News of God’s love.
Mt. Calvary teaches the love of the Triune God: the Father, who is the creator of all in existence; Jesus Christ, the Son who became human to die for the sins of all people and rise again in victory over death; and the Holy Spirit, who creates and sustains faith through Word and Sacrament. The three persons of the Trinity are one God, coequal and coeternal.

Mt. Calvary is a Lutheran church which teaches the Bible-based writings of Martin Luther that inspired the Reformation of the Christian church.  The three main teachings of Luther can be summarized in three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, and Scripture alone.

God loves all the people of the world, even though sinful and rebellious. Even though we do not deserve it, God sent his Son to love and save us, as a free gift.
The church teaches that the Bible shows that Jesus did all necessary to pay the price for the sins of all people with His death and resurrection. Those who simply hear and believe this Good News have the eternal life that it offers.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God. It is the sole ruler and norm for Christian doctrine.
