Augustana District Core Values

theology

Theology

"The Word of God is Jesus Christ[2], the proclamation of him[3], and the Holy
Scriptures[4]. This Word functions as both law and gospel, which need to be distinguished, but not separated. The law orders society and convicts us of sin, showing us our need for a Savior[5]. The gospel is the power of God that liberates us from sin, death, and the power of the devil, and brings us, by grace, from death to life[6].

2 John 1:1, 14, 3 Matthew 18:20; I , John 1:1, 2, 4 II Timothy 3:16, 5 Smalcald, Part III, Article II. The Law, 6 Romans 1:16

Church

"Sinners are made right with God by grace alone through faith alone on account of Christ alone. This is the article of faith by which the church stands or falls."[1]

1 Augustana IV; Smalcald, Part II, Article 1: “Nothing in this article can be given up or compromised.”

Mission-icon

Mission

Christ commanded that his Word be proclaimed[7]. Through it, the Holy Spirit works faith when and where he pleases[8] and repentant sinners are elected unto salvation. Christians live out their earthly lives as totally justified and totally sinful[9].
