- Jesus of Nazareth, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, is the Christ of God who has atoned for our sins and the sins of the whole world.
- Through the Holy Scriptures the Lord continues to speak to us, teaching everything necessary for the forgiveness of our sins, and for living a God-pleasing life in this world.
- After his resurrection, Jesus established his presence with us through his Word, and in the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion. He comes to us through these things to give us the gift of life in his name!
- Although the Church and the Scriptures have much to say about moral behaviour, it is the Church’s primary business to proclaim the eternal life and forgiveness earned by Christ at his cross and given to all as a free gift in his Word and Sacraments!
