Welcome to Saint Paul Lutheran Church!
Saint Paul is a member congregation of the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. In our congregation Christ gathers His people around God's Holy Word--to hear it proclaimed, to study it, to proclaim it in worship. In the congregation, through the water and Word of Holy Baptism, God claims each child--young or old--as His own, calling them by name and bringing them into His kingdom. In Holy Communion, Christ is truly and essentially present under the bread and wine, given to His people to eat and to drink, for the forgiveness of their sins, for life and for salvation. We invite you to join us for worship and study.
We are a "confessional" Lutheran congregation, which subscribes unconditionally to the Lutheran Book of Concord of 1580. The teachings of Martin Luther and the Reformers can be summarized by these three phrases: Grace alone, Scripture alone, Faith alone.
Grace alone: God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.
Scripture alone: The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.
Faith alone: By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them.
Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.
