What We Believe

St Paul’s Ev. Lutheran Church Strives to Be:

  • A church which exists to proclaim, to preserve, and to spread the saving Gospel of Christ crucified for sinners.
  • A church which values faithfulness to the Word above any seeming organizational advantage.
  • A church which has but one Master – Christ – and bows to no human authority or tradition in matters of faith.
  • A church which gives priority to Christian education.
  • A church which respects your privacy in giving.
  • A church which refuses to be a political pressure group.
  • A church which motivates people to function in matters of social concern as individuals, according to their own Christian judgment.
  • A church which seeks people in order to serve them.

WE STILL BELIEVE . . .

  • In an age of doubt, we still believe Jesus’ resurrection proves He is the I AM God equal to the Father and the Holy Spirit, the Trinity
  • In an age of confusion, we still believe God’s fulfillment of prophecy and Jesus’ resurrection demonstrate every Word of the Bible is inerrant and infallible
  • In an age of guilt, we still believe that the Angel’s good tidings: “Unto you is born a Savior” and Jesus’ resurrection reveal the certainty of Heaven’s decree: “Your sins are forgiven”
  • In an age of fear, we still believe Jesus came to be our brother and His resurrection assures us we will bodily arise and live with Him in eternal joy
  • In an age of self-reliance, we still believe that only God’s arms can guide and protect us and that Jesus’ resurrection reveals it is His Word and Sacraments that empower us
  • In an age of politics, we still believe Jesus’ resurrection leads His people to listen to His Word above all
  • In an age of anxiety, we still believe Jesus’ resurrection blesses us with His heavenly peace which the world can not give
  • In an age of redefinition, we still believe that God instituted marriage as a lifelong union between one man and one woman.
