My Beliefs

My beliefs are summed up in the founding doctrinal statement of the church I pastor.
We take the Bible as the only and infallible rule of conduct of our faith and life, and we guide ourselves by the symbolical books of the Evangelical Church listed as most important: the Augsburg Confession, Luther's Catechism, and the Heidelberg Catechism, in so far as these agree, and where there are differences, however, we hold ourselves to the relevant passages of Scripture and to the prevailing understanding of them in the Evangelical Church.

I stand in the interpretive trajectory of the United Lutheran-Reformed tradition coming out of Germany (a.k.a., German Evangelical).  The Evangelical Catechism is an excellent summary of this tradition.
