Kitimat Redeemer Lutheran Church
We believe, teach and confess the faith of the historic Christian Church as it has always been taught in the three creeds (Apostles', Nicene, and Athanasian), that there is only one true God, and yet in this one God there are three persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that God the Son was born of the virgin Mary. This Jesus Christ, who is true God and true man, died on the cross and rose to life again in order to save the world from God's wrath. We wait for Him to return on the Last Day to judge the world and take us, His children, to heaven.
We believe that the only authority for Christian teaching and life which never errs or leads us astray is God's Word, which He has given to us in the Old and New Testament Scriptures (the Bible).
We believe that we cannot be forgiven before God by our own efforts, but that we receive the forgiveness of sin and are made right with God by grace, for Christ's sake, through faith.
We believe that God has provided the way for us to receive this saving faith: the Holy Spirit has promised to give faith when pastors preach the Gospel and administer the holy sacraments.
We confess that those who believe in Jesus Christ show their faith through their love and service to their neighbours.
