What We Believe

Mt. Olive Lutheran Church teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator and sustainer of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God’s Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and co-eternal, one God.
