What We Believe

"Christians are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, as revealed by Scripture alone, to the glory of God alone."

Core Beliefs

The following are the core beliefs of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church - North Platte based on the foundational truths taught in the bible. All of our teaching and ministry is rooted in and flows out of these biblical doctrines.


There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom,  justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
(As referenced in John  14:23-26; 15:26; 16:28)


God has revealed himself to us through his son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the holy scriptures, and through all of creation itself.
(As referenced in 2 Timothy 3:16-17)


Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.
(As referenced in Genesis 2:2-24)

The Fall

When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God, and fractured all of creation ever since that time.
(As referenced in Genesis 3:1-19)


Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.
(As referenced in John 3:16-17)

The Church

The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
(As referenced in 1 Corinthians 12:13-27)

The lord's supper

The Lord's Supper is the gift of Jesus' Body and Blood in the bread and wine, which convey forgiveness of sins to those who repent of their sins and recognize/believe in this divine gift. Since reception of the Lord's Supper benefits only those who believe these things, Christian love does not offer it to those who have not been instructed in its true meaning or hold a different belief about it, lest they take it to their spiritual harm.
(As referenced in 1 Corinthians 10:16; 11:25-29)


Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
(As referenced in 1 Corinthians 15:20-23)
