Our Beliefs

  Get to know us ---

   Our Risen Lord is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  We want you to know that

    "This is Christ's Church.  There is a place for you.

    " We are a church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace.  Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person --questions, complexities and all.  Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world."

     "Lutherans are a diverse group of people, convinced that the Holy Spirit is leading us toward unity in the household of God."                        (see ELCA website)


   Lutherans believe in the Triune God. God created and loves all creation --the earth and the seas and all of the world's inhabitatnt.  We believe that God's Son, Jesus Christ, transforms lives through his death on the cross and his new life, and we trust that God's Spirit is active in the world.   -   We are a part of God's unfolding plan.  When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere.  When we study the Bible or hear God's word in worship, we are drawn more deeply into God's own saving story.  - The convictions shared by Christians from many traditions are expressed in statements of faith called creeds.  These creed that Lutheran affirm and use in worship confess the faith through the ages and around the world:  The Apostles Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed.
