As a Lutheran church, our faith is rooted in the faith that has been passed from generation to generation. Here at Spirit of Joy!, we express these foundational beliefs by saying that:
We worship the God of creation who delivered Israel through the Sea, the same God who became flesh in Jesus Christ in order to share the power of God’s Kingdom, the same God who moves through our lives as a powerful, inspiring Spirit.
We are saved by grace – at the heart of our faith, our lives, and our community is the gift of God toward us and the world.
The Christian life and Christian community is marked by the gifts of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
