Who We Are
Florida-Bahamas Synod of the ELCA - Lutherans are Christians - We confess that Jesus is the son of God, God's self, who became human, died and was raised from the dead so that all who believe in him would have eternal life.
We believe we can best understand God in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. At St. Timothy we preach about and pray to a saving God who teaches, heals, and renews life.
We call God 'Father". We acknowledge God as the creator of the universe and we acknowledge that God maintains a parental relationship to creation in which he is committed to our growth and survival of creation.
We believe that all God's children are created good, but sin has separated us from Him. Sin is not so much individual acts of wrongdoing as a fractured relationship between God and his children.
We believe that for Jesus' sake God forgives our sin and brings us into a right relationship with God. This right relationship is called righteousness or the stae of being justified by God's grace through faith.
We consider humans to be both sinners and saints at the same time. On our own we are sinners but through our faith in Jesus Christ, God gives us forgiveness and the power to overcome sin.
We believe faith is a gift to us.We are not able to come to faith on our own, but by God's Holy Spirit our hearts are moved to believe in a loving and saving God and take hold of faith.
