We are a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada. The Lutheran church is a "confessional" church. These confessions are statements that explain and defend what our church teaches and believes. Written in the 16th century, they are found in The Book of Concord. They were intended to help people discuss their faith, and they still help us to do that.
Everything we believe and teach about God is found in the Bible. We insist on that. The core of what the Bible has to tell us about God is the Gospel. For us everything in the Bible is centered in the good news of Jesus Christ. Martin Luther taught that the Bible deals with two basic categories: Law and Gospel.
