faithful response to God’s grace and empowerment by the Holy Spirit

Synod is to vigorously make known the love of Christ by Word and deed
to our churches, communities and the world.
alone - God loves the people of the world, even though they
are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus,
His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.
Scripture alone - The Bible is God’s inerrant
and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation
in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian Doctrine.
Faith alone - By His suffering and death as the substitute
for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and
eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it
have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and
gives people forgiveness through Him
