Core Values

First and foremost, our core values are rooted in our Lutheran faith and doctrines. We celebrate this faith and the gift of generosity that comes from God. Our primary objective is to glorify our Lord in all our doings and actions.

Statement of Faith

We share the faith of Lutheran Church Canada:

“The Synod, and every member of the Synod, accepts without reservation:

  • The Scriptures of the Old and the New Testament as the written Word of God and the only rule and norm of faith and of practice;
  • All the Symbolical Books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church as a true and unadulterated statement and exposition of the Word of God, to wit: the three Ecumenical Creeds (the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Athanasian Creed), the Unaltered Augsburg Confession, the Apology of the Augsburg Confession, the Smalcald Articles, the Large Catechism of Luther, the Small Catechism of Luther, and the Formula of Concord.”

What Lutherans Teach, Believe & Confess

The basis of all Lutheran teachings is the Bible. Martin Luther and the other reformers wrote a series of documents answering accusations that their teaching was contrary to commonly held beliefs and practices of the 15th century church. These defenses and arguments, based upon the Bible, were presented before a series of theological gatherings. Eventually, they were compiled into The Book of Concord. These comprise the doctrine and confession of the Lutheran Church.
