We uphold the historic Creeds, the Apostles', Nicene, and Athanasian, as true symbols of the faith.
In the Lutheran faith, we have two Sacraments - Baptism and the Lord's Supper - in which we receive gifts and promise that our Lord has given us in that he has forgiven us of our sins and has adopted us as his sons and daughters. We still believe in the benefits of the Confession of Sins, both Private and Corporate, as it points to the two Sacraments and the promises given in Baptism that we carry with us as well as the promises given to us as we are given them at the Altar when we receive our Lord's Body and Blood.
We believe the Bible is the true and trustworthy as God's Holy Word and revelation of his love for creation. We are called to read the Bible as it is written from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21, what does that mean. When written as a historical narrative, we read it as such. The same is true with poetry, prophecy, dreams, visions, and parables. The Word is our only revelation that is fully trustworthy and is the inspired Word of God written through people chosen by God.
