Our beliefs are formed by the truths of scripture as the Word of God. The Old Testament scriptures were authoritatively verified by Jesus Christ in his words and ministry. The New Testament reflects the words of Jesus passed to his disciples and recorded by them as inspired by the Holy Spirit. We believe the truth of scripture because of our faith in Jesus as the Son of God.
St. Mark's is a member of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. As Lutheran Christians, we believe that the truths of scripture are reflected in the Book of Concord as a detailed confession of our faith.
