What We Believe

The Apostolic Lutheran Church of America recognizes as true: the Christian Doctrine, based on the Old and New Testaments of the Holy Bible; the Lutheran Doctrine, the Book of Concord, and the three ecumenical symbols: the Apostolic, the Nicene, the Athanasian Creeds, and the Augsburg Confessions; (those parts) which are in agreement with the Holy Bible and uphold the Confession of True Faith, and love as the greatest law.

All ritual and polity of the Church are to be governed according to the immovable truths of the above mentioned Confessions, namely, that the Holy Word of God (both the Old and New Testaments) shall be the sole authority of truth in the light of which all doctrine in this Church shall be examined and determined.

The principal calling (duty) of this Church shall be the propagation of the true doctrine, which shall manifest itself in the preaching of repentance and the remission (forgiveness) of sins, and by the administration of the sacraments of Holy Baptism and the Lord’s Supper customarily practiced by the Apostolic Lutheran Churches.
