What We Believe
Cross View is part of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.
As Lutherans, we get our name from Martin Luther, a German priest who was excommunicated from the Roman Catholic Church in the early 1500s. Luther’s writing and teaching sparked the Protestant Reformation.
The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases:
Grace Alone: God loves the people of the world, even though we are sinful, rebel against Him, and do not deserve His love.
Scripture Alone: The Bible is God’s inerrant (without error) Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ.
Faith Alone: Jesus’ suffering and death is the substitute for all people of all time. He purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for all. Those who hear this Good News and believe it will have the eternal life that it offers.
