WHAT WE BELIEVE
At the Heart of Everything We Do
What we believe about The Bible
That the Bible is the true and inerrant Word of God. We reject any thought that makes only a part of Scripture God’s Word, that allows for the possibility of factual error in Scripture, or error in so-called nonreligious matters
(for example: historical, geographical, or scientific matters).
What we believe about Jesus Christ
That Jesus Christ, true God, begotten of the Father from eternity, and also true man, born of the virgin Mary,
is the only Savior from sin, death and the powers of the devil.
What we believe about Salvation
"That man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law." (Romans 3:28) Salvation is God's gift to us.
It is received by faith alone. Even faith is a gift of God, produced in us by the Holy Spirit,
who works through visible means, that is, the Word of God and the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord's Supper.
What we believe about Good Works in the life of a Christian
That faith in Jesus Christ is a living force within the Christian that must produce works that are pleasing to God.
“Faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead” (James 2:17).
So a Christian as a branch of Christ the Vine, brings forth good fruit (John 15:5).
Bay Pines Lutheran Church is a church committed to Christ and His Word. We are dedicated to sharing the love of Christ through ministry, fellowship and worship. Our church is not just a house of worship. At its core are the members and believers that come together to practice God’s Word, celebrate His love and extend His gifts to all.
Since 1958, we have striven to create a strong community driven by the teachings of Jesus Christ, which are the guiding force in the lives of our congregation. Through our worship, activities and special community, we give our members the chance to become fully immersed in the wisdom and teachings of the Lord.
Our promise to you:
Jesus at the center of everything we do
Hearing each week how much God loves you in spite of your shortcomings
Your faith will be rooted in the Bible and sacraments
Personal pastor care will always be available when you need it
