WoG Core Values:
What We Believe:
About Jesus Christ
We believe and confess our faith in the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We trust and believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior and Lord.
We believe and confess that all human beings are sinners and that sinners are redeemed by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. God alone justifies human beings by faith in Christ – a faith that God creates through the message of the Gospel. As ambassadors for Christ, God uses us to speak His Word and build His kingdom.
About the Priesthood of Believers
We believe and confess that the Holy Spirit makes all who believe in Jesus Christ to be priests for service to others in Jesus’ name, and that God desires to make use of the spiritual gifts he has given through the priesthood of all believers.
About Mission and Ministry
We believe and confess that the Church is the assembly of believers called and gathered by God around Word and Sacrament, and that the mission and ministry of the Church is carried out within the context of individual congregations, which are able to work together locally and globally.
We accept the canonical Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as the inspired revealed Word of God, spoken in Law and Gospel, as the final authority for us in all matters of our proclamation, faith, and life without change or reinterpretation by any church authority.
About Marriage and Family
We uphold the Biblical norms and tradition for marriage and family.
