What We Believe
Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church is a congregation in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA).
We confess the Triune God—Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching we trust the gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.
Our teaching serves the proclamation and ministry of this faith. It does not have an answer for all questions, not even all religious questions. Teaching prepares members to be witnesses in speech and in action of God’s rich mercy in Jesus Christ.
Scriptures, Creeds and Confessions—The ELCA’s official Confession of Faith identifies the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments (commonly called the Bible); the Apostles’, Nicene and Athanasian Creeds; and the Lutheran confessional writings in the Book of Concord as the basis for our teaching.
