The Word of God

is a two-fold Word of the Law and the Gospel. The Law reveals our sin and the wrath of God. The Gospel reveals the forgiveness of sin through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ by the grace of God. The central teaching of the Bible is the justification of the sinner by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ. We believe that the proper distinction between the Law (God’s Commands) and the Gospel (God’s Promises) is essential for a right understanding of the Holy Scriptures. (Ro. 1:16; 3:21-22)
