What We Believe
We believe in the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe Baptism is for everyone at all ages, including infants.
We believe Christ’s Body and Blood are truly present in Holy Communion.
We believe the only way to heaven is through faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God with no mistakes.
Statements of faith have been written by Christians since Jesus ascended into heaven. Around 150 A .D. the Apostles Creed was used by new Christians to publicly express their faith before they were baptized. We at Gethsemane Lutheran Church use the Apostles Creed as one statement of what we believe.
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, And in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord: Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell. On the third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty, from there He shall come to judge the living and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting.
