The G.E.L. Church accepts the three Ecumenical Creeds: namely Apostles, the Nicene and Athnasian, as important testimonials drawn from Holy Scriptures and rejects all errors which they condemn.
The G.E.L. Church receives and holds the unaltered Augsburg confession as correct exhibition of the faith and the doctrine of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, founded upon the Word of God, and acknowledges that all churches which sincerely hold and faithfully confess the Doctrines of the Augsburg Confession, to be entitled with the name “Evangelical Lutheran”.
The G.E.L Church recognizes the Apology of the Augsburg confession, the smalkald Articles, the Large and Smalkald Articles, the Large and Small Catechisms of Dr. Martin Luther and Formula of Concord, as being in harmony with the one and the same scriptural faith.
