Our Values

Concordia Lutheran Church is a church family committed to the authority of the Bible as the inspired Word of God. In keeping with the Lutheran Confessions, we believe all doctrines should and must be judged by the teaching of Scripture. We are a church centered on the unique Gospel of Jesus Christ, animated by missions and evangelism, grounded in the 2,000-year Christian faith tradition, and organized chiefly to serve our congregations.

Concordia Lutheran Church has embraced four core values of the NALC, which shape our everyday life:

The Lutheran Faith

According to

  • The Triune God — Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.
    • Jesus Christ is the Word of God incarnate, through whom everything was made and through whose life, death, and resurrection God fashions a new creation.
    • The proclamation of God’s message to us as both Law and Gospel is the Word of God, revealing judgment and mercy through word and deed, beginning with the Word in creation, continuing in the history of Israel, and centering in all its fullness in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
    • The canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the written Word of God. Inspired by the Holy Spirit speaking through their authors, they record and announce God’s revelation centering on Jesus Christ. Through them, the Holy Spirit speaks to us to create and sustain Christian faith and fellowship for service in the world.
  • The canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired Word of God and the authoritative source and norm of its proclamation, faith, and life, “according to which all doctrines should and must be judged.” (Formula of Concord, Epitome, Part I)
  • The Apostles’, Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds as true declarations of the faith of the Church.
  • The Unaltered Augsburg Confession as a true witness to the Gospel, acknowledging as one with it in faith and doctrine all churches that likewise accept the teachings of the Unaltered Augsburg Confession.
  • The other confessional writings in the Book of Concord, namely, the Apology of the Augsburg Confession, the Smalcald Articles and the Treatise, the Small Catechism, the Large Catechism, and the Formula of Concord, as further valid interpretations of the faith of the Church.
  • The Gospel, recorded in the Holy Scriptures and confessed in the ecumenical creeds and Lutheran confessional writings, as the power of God to create and sustain the Church for God’s mission in the world.
  • Concordia Lutheran Church honors and accepts The Common Confession (2005) as a summary of teachings otherwise affirmed in the Lutheran Confessions.
