The people of St. Mark’s Evangelical Lutheran Church are, by the grace of God, members of the Christian Church, saved through faith in Christ Jesus. We are gathered around the saving gifts of His Holy Word and Sacraments (Baptism and Communion). The center of our life together is the Divine Service (worship), where these gifts are freely given.
In each service we are brought into the presence of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. By hearing and receiving His Word, we are assured that by His death on the cross and resurrection from the dead, we are forgiven of our sins and given everlasting life in His name. We joyfully cling to the teachings of the inspired and inerrant Word of God (the Holy Bible), and confess Martin Luther’s Small Catechism, the Augsburg Confession, and the entire Book of Concord of 1580 to be the correct interpretation and presentation of biblical doctrine.
In other words… we believe, teach, and confess that salvation is in Christ alone, by grace alone, through faith alone, on the basis of Scripture alone.
