is one divine essence, which is called and which is truly God, and there are
three persons in the one divine essence, equal in power and alike eternal: God
the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. All three are one divine essence,
eternal, without division, without end, of infinite power, wisdom, and
goodness, one creator and preserver of all things visible and invisible.
Sola Gratia (Grace
the heart of what we believe is the conviction that salvation is the free gift
of God's grace (undeserved mercy) for Christ's sake alone.
Sola Fide (Faith Alone)
God's grace is universal and embraces all people, we believe that the
Scriptures teach that this grace can be appropriated by sinful human beings
only through faith.
Luther's insight that salvation comes by grace alone through faith alone cannot
be divorced from "on the basis of Scripture alone." For it was
directly as a result of his commitment to Scripture that Luther came to
rediscover justification by grace alone through faith alone.
