What we believe at HCLC about Jesus, the Bible, and the Church

Our Beliefs

JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ is the Son of God, true God and true man. He died for you by crucifixion about 2,000 years ago outside of Jerusalem, then arose to life on the day we now remember as Easter. He did this to forgive you of your sins. We treat this as historical fact and spiritual revelation.

THE TRINITY

We believe there is only one God who is known to us in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This mystery is evident throughout the Bible.

The bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives. The Bible is God's means of expressing His will to us.

THE SEPARATION

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. We believe none of us has the capacity to solve this mortal dilemma.

THE RECONCILIATION

We believe that Jesus' death and resurrection was for all sinners, and that you can receive the free gift of forgiveness through baptism and repentance.

THE CHURCH

We believe that the Church exists wherever God's word is faithfully proclaimed, and the sacraments of baptism and communion are properly practiced .

HCLC is a member congregation in good standing with the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. You can learn more about the Gospel impact our church is having in the world at LCMS.org
