What We Believe At
First English Lutheran we believe that the Almighty and Eternal God has created us, loves us and is concerned about us — regardless of our circumstances or station in life.

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God --- always correct and containing no errors --- which is why it us useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness.

We believe that because we are lost and condemned sinners our most basic and urgent need is to know and receive God’s forgiving and unconditional love.

We believe God has met this need through Jesus Christ, His Son, who is our Lord and Savior.

We believe God desires each of us to be in relationship with Him.

We believe that eternal, meaningful and fulfilling relationships occur with the context of Christian church — where people gather together to receive Christ’s love in a way that it will teach us to better serve and love one another
