The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and
the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God’s Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.
Lutherans believe in ...
Grace alone – God loved the world, though we do not deserve His love. God sent His Son to love the unlovely and save the ungodly.
Faith alone – Jesus has provided for our forgiveness and life; those who hear this promise and believe it, have what it offers. God gifts us with faith as He gives us His promises.
Scripture alone – The Bible is the only source that shows God’s will and the only basis for faith and life.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
