What we believe

Holy Cross accepts and preaches the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized by three phrases: Grace alone, Faith alone, Scripture alone.

Sola Gratia

(Grace alone)
God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love.

Sola Fide

(Faith alone)
By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all
time, Jesus purchased and won His love. He sent Jesus, His Son,
to love the unlovable and save the ungodly forgiveness and eternal
life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have
the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives
people forgiveness through Him.

Sola Scriptura

(Scriptura alone)
The Bible is God’s inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ.
