We believe in the Triune God

We believe in the Father, who is the Creator of all that exists. We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan. We believe in the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God’s Word and Sacraments. We believe that the three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.

We believe in Grace Alone, Faith Alone and Scripture Alone

Sola Gratia We believe in Grace alone which means that 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.

Sola Fide We believe in Faith alone which means by His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all times, Jesus Christ 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.

Sola Scriptura We believe in Scripture alone which means 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.

We also believe that God has called us to live out our faith in service to Him and all people, near and far. We believe that God has placed our congregation in the midst of the community of Ahwatukee to show His love to all people and to serve them as if we were serving Christ himself.
