Statement of Faith

The following statements frame our teaching and decisions at Rocky Mountain Lutheran.

We believe there is only one true God. He has made Himself known as the Triune God, one God in three persons. This is evident from Jesus’ command to His disciples to baptize in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. (John 17:3, Matthew 28:19)

We believe that God has made us and all creatures and that we have failed to live up to those things which God wants and requires of us. (Colossians 1:16, Romans 3:23)

We believe that God is a merciful and gracious God who does not desire that any should perish. (I Timothy 2:4)

We believe that, therefore, He sent His Son Jesus into the world to live a perfect life and to die an innocent death for us. (John 3:16)

We believe 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 power of the devil and that through Him we are reconciled to our heavenly Father and become His dear children. (Acts 4:12, II Corinthians 5:19-21)

We believe that through faith in Jesus Christ, as promised to us in the Bible, a man is justified without the deeds of the Law and that his faith is a living force within a believer which produces works that are pleasing to God. (Romans 3:28, John 15:5)

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. We reject any thought that makes only part of Scripture God’s Word, or that allows for the possibility of factual error in Scripture, and also in so-called non-religious matters, e.g. historical, geographical, etc. (II Timothy 3:16)

We believe that we receive through His Spirit the power to live new and changed lives devoted to Him and His glory. (II Corinthians 5:17)

We believe that when this life is over, an eternal home is awaiting us in heaven. (John 14:2-3)
