Yesterday's church bulletin had a very succinct summary of our church body's beliefs, and I just thought I'd post it here because it's quite lovely.

We believe and teach
  • that all people are born in sin and that this sin has seperated us from God,
  • that out of pure love God sent his own Son to save all people from sin,
  • that Jesus, the perfect Son of God, lived a perfect life and died an innocent death to wash our sin away,
  • that through believing in Jesus, we are forgiven and made children of God,
  • and that as forgiven children of God we have a secure eternal life in heaven.
Direct, concise, and accurate. I should memorize this so when people ask me, "Just what is it that Wisconsin Evangelical Lutherans believe?" I'll have a good outline to follow while explaining.

Agree or disagree? That is the question...
