We believe that there is only one true God.
Jesus is that unique person in whom the true God and a true human nature are inseparably united in one.
We believe that Jesus Christ was sent by the Father to save all people from sin, Satan, and everlasting death.
He lived a perfect life and took upon himself the sins of the whole world.
Through his perfect life and innocent death, his righteousness is accepted by the Father as our righteousness and his death for sin as our death for sin.
We believe that his resurrection on Easter gives full assurance that God has accepted Jesus’ work of salvation in our behalf.
We believe that it is the Holy Spirit who brings the blessings of Christ’s work to people.
It is the Holy Spirit working through the God-given means of the Gospel in the Word and the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion that forgiveness of sins is received and that faith is given and strengthened.
As Christians united in our common faith that Jesus, the Son of God, lived and died for the sins of all people, and has commanded us to go and tell of his resurrection; It is our mission at Mt. Olive to serve our Lord and one another in love by sharing the good news of our risen Savior in our community and throughout the world, and nurturing our members through Word and Sacrament.
We will each grow in God’s Word, and invite our community to grow with us.
