Our Beliefs

Mt. Zion Beliefs

The beliefs of our church can be summed up in the words of the Apostles and Nicene Creed which we recite each week, along with the Lord’s prayer.  As a Confessional Lutheran church we accept the Lutheran Confessions as valid interpretations of the faith of the Church and true witnesses to the Gospel. We believe that salvation is by

Grace Alone

God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.

Faith Alone

By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.

Scripture Alone

The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.
