What we believe in.
Christian faith means trusting in the grace of God, as preached by Jesus and witnessed through his life and death. Faith does not primarily mean believing in dogmas. Rather it describes a living relationship with God in Jesus Christ. Faith imparts the certainty that we are beloved and accepted by God – regardless of what we do or achieve. In this way, faith becomes the foundation of our life. Everyone who receives love is able to pass it on – moved by the Holy Spirit faith is revealed through love.
The basis of our Christian faith is the Bible. Above all we owe our faith to the witnesses who tell us about God in the books of the Old and the New Testament. The confessions of Early Christianity and the reformers have shaped our faith as well. They can be found in the hymnbook of the German Protestant churches.
