Beliefs

The Bible – We teach that the Holy Bible is the living word of God, inspired by God’s Holy Spirit, and our final authority in matters of faith and life (2 Timothy 3:16 & Psalm 119:105).

God – We teach that there is one God (Deuteronomy 6:4), eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19 & 2 Corinthians 13:13).

Jesus Christ – We teach that Jesus Christ is both fully God and fully human, who, by His death on the cross, has redeemed us (1 Timothy 3:16 & Isaiah 9:6 & Colossians 1:15-20).

The Holy Spirit – The Holy Spirit’s supernatural gifts are available and operative today for all Christians (Acts 2 & 1 Corinthians 12:1-31; 14:1-25 & Romans 12).

Human Nature – We teach that human nature is sinful and is redeemed only through faith in Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23).

Salvation – We teach that Christ alone provides salvation (Acts 4:12 & John 14:6). This salvation is a gift (“Grace” Ephesians 2:8-9). We teach that one can be certain of eternal life (“Assurance” John 5:24). We teach that we partake of this free gift of grace by faith alone (Romans 3:28 & John 3:16), and thereby enter a lifelong process of change and growth (Romans 12:2 & 2 Corinthians 5:17 & Galatians 2:20).

The Church – We teach that we are a part of one true Church (Ephesians 4:4-6 & Romans 12:5) made up of all who believe in Christ as Lord. We extend the hand of fellowship to all members of this universal Christian Church (Romans 15:7).

Prayer – We at Olivet are a people of prayer. We teach that God answers prayer and we encourage everyone to grow in prayer (James 5:16 & Matthew 18:18-20).

Baptism and the Lord’s Supper – We teach that Jesus instituted Holy Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We teach that God truly acts in these sacraments, and that our faith is essential for their effectiveness (Mark 16:16 & 1 Corinthians 11:29 & John 3:16). We teach that the Bible is not conclusive on a specific age for a baptismal candidate nor the amount of water for baptism.

Our Lutheran Heritage and Identity – We identify with the renewal movement begun in the Lutheran Reformation. We teach the Lutheran themes of grace through faith alone, scripture alone, and Christ alone.

Changed Life – We believe that becoming a Christian leads to a changed life (2 Corinthians 5:17). We call this change “sanctification,” which is a lifelong process of growth in selfless love, humility, service, stewardship, and holiness under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Change and growth are not optional for those saved by grace (James 2:17 & Romans 12:2), because a good tree bears good fruit (Matthew 7:17-18). People justified by grace through faith act on that faith and will change and grow in Christ. (2 Peter 3:18 & James 1:22 & 2 Corinthians 3:18; 5:17 & Ephesians 4:22-24).

End Times – We encourage a sense of readiness and a zeal for the return of Christ, but leave views on the exact sequence and complexity/simplicity of the last things up to the individual believer.

Marriage – We teach that a full sexual relationship belongs within the boundaries of a publicly committed marriage between one man and one woman (Genesis 2:24 & Ephesians 5:31 & Exodus 20:14 & Romans 1:26-27).

The Unborn – We teach the sanctity and defense of all human life including the unborn (Deuteronomy 30:19 & Jeremiah 1:5 & Proverbs 31:8).

Peace – We teach that we are to be proactive in peacemaking (Ephesians 2:14 & Matthew 5:9).

Impartiality – We teach that Christians are to work actively to break down barriers that divide people; especially those of race, economics, and gender (Acts 10:34-35 & Galatians 3:28). We do not believe these distinctions will matter in heaven and teach that the church on earth should mirror this eventual reality (Matthew 6:10).
