Jesus told her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying."
Who is Jesus?
We say this about Him:
The Apostles Creed
I believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, His only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and was buried. He descended into hell. The third day He rose again from the dead. He ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father Almighty. From there He will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.
The Nicene Creed
I believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only‐begotten Son of God, begotten of His Father before all worlds, God of God, Light of Light, very God of very God, begotten, not made, being of one substance with the Father, by whom all things were made; who for us men and for our salvation came down from heaven and was incarnate by the Holy Spirit of the virgin Mary and was made man; and was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate. He suffered and was buried. And the third day He rose again according to the Scriptures and ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of the Father. And He will come again with glory to judge both the living and the dead, whose kingdom will have no end.
And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son together is worshiped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And I believe in one holy Christian and apostolic Church, I acknowledge one Baptism for the remission of sins, and I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.
These two creeds, along with the Athanasian Creed form what's called the "Three Ecumenical Creeds" of the Christian Church. Christians from the early centuries after the death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ have confessed these words to be true and faithful expositions of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. We join with the faithful Christians who have always confessed these words to be true.
Churches shouldn't walk alone.
We have the Bible and the historical creeds of the Christian faith, but we believe it's healthy for churches to keep themselves in check by walking with other congregations that confess the same things about Jesus. The churches we walk together with are those that belong to the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. Together, we find our roots in the theology of the 16th century reformation that inspired a return to the gospel by focusing solely on Jesus, faith, grace, and scripture.
