Statement of Beliefs
Statement of General Belief
Our Redeemer Lutheran Church with School (‘Our Redeemer’) is a ministry centered on the divinely inspired Word of God as set forth in the Holy Bible (“Scripture”). Our Redeemer is part of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod (LCMS). The LCMS is a mission-oriented and Bible-based denomination that confesses the historic, orthodox Christian faith in the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, a faith built on “the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone” (Eph. 2:20). With the universal Christian Church, the LCMS teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God, who created all that exists; became man to suffer, die, and rise again for the world’s redemption; and brings people to faith and new life through His Word and Sacraments.
We believe that each person is created uniquely by God, and as such, is inherently worthy of respect and love. Acknowledging this to be true, there is no place for negative actions such as cheating, stealing, bullying, or lack of respect for authority or others. In the event that an individual is behaving in such a way that goes against Scripture, the Lutheran Confessions and Christian values, we will approach the person in Christian love to gently admonish them with the goal they would turn away from such behavior and be forgiven. In the event that no resolution can be reached, Our Redeemer has the right to discipline in Christian love or to ask an elected leader, employee, or volunteer to step down, if that action would best serve the Church.
We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ (Acts 3:19-21; Rom. 10: 1-10; 1 Cor. 6: 29-11).
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31). Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the policies of Our Redeemer.
