Basics of our Christian Faith
That the Lord Jesus Christ is the Head of our Fellowship and a relationship with Him is our primary objective. That a personal relationship to Jesus is the only connection to God and path of salvation. We trust that through prayer and devotion that the Holy Spirit will guide and lead us.
We fully embrace the Nicene Creed, Apostles' Creed, and the Athanasius's Creed.
We fully embrace from the Lutheran Confessions that: Christ Alone, Grace Alone, Faith Alone, and Scripture Alone is sufficient for the salvation of man.
We are an Evangelical Congregation leaning community with an interdenominational ecumenical openness.
“You are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people” (1 Pet 2:9).
One enters into the People of God by faith and Baptism.
The Christian people are the Body of Christ. Through the Holy Spirit and his action in the sacraments, above all the Eucharist, Christ, who once was dead and is now risen, establishes the community of believers as his own Body. In the unity of this Body, there is a diversity of members and functions.
The Christian people are the Body of which Christ is the head: we live from him, in him, and for him; he lives with us and in us.
Jesus Christ is true God and true man, in the unity of his divine person; for this reason he is the one and only mediator between God and men.
(Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church #480)
“Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures” (1 Cor 15:3).
That Jesus Christ is the only path and connection to God and Salvation.
All people suffer from some form of weakness and brokenness, incapable of perfection. Christ's example of compassion and mercy commands us to embrace people where they are in their own spiritual journey. We walk gently with them while they develop spiritually, never demanding them to take our path, but allowing ourselves to be a vessel of the Holy Spirit working to heal wounds and strengthen a resolve for change. In this way, Discipleship is an art of prudent love beginning with listening and kindness. This is the core of our spiritual nature here at the Society of the Eucharist. We seek to live out our Christian journey in perpetual servitude to our Lord seeking only His will for our lives. Humility and fortitude to persevere on this path is our most common prayer. The Christian life is the hardest road ever taken and few people will ever truly take it and stick with it.
"Lord you know our hearts and the depth of our brokenness. You accommodated it all by your example and resurrection from death. Help us surrender all that we are in you that we may embrace the Divine will, and strengthen us to carry it out. In the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit."
Though distinct in their faculties, our lay ministers, deacons, pastors, and priests,
all have equal value and no one is greater than the other in our community.
