  1. Praise is a member of the Church of the Lutheran Brethren of America. The following is our statement of faith:

  2. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and is the only source and guide for faith, teachings about God, and life.

  3. We accept the Lutheran Church’s confession of faith as being in agreement with God’s Word.

  4. We believe that a congregation is a gathering of believing Christians where the Word of God is faithfully preached and where the sacraments (communion and baptism) are performed in accordance with God’s Word.

  5. We believe in a personal experience of salvation in Christ.

  6. We conduct our services based on the Word of God, which occupies the most prominent place in the service.

  7. We encourage the spreading of the Gospel and furthering the work of the Kingdom of God by all believing Christians.

  8. We seek to support parents by teaching our youth and children to be followers of Christ and affirm the parents’ place as the main spiritual influence on their children.

  9. We support mission work in our community, region, nation, and all over the world.

  10. As a church and as individual members of Praise Christian Fellowship, we are actively seeking to give people of all ages an opportunity to enter into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
