What We Believe

St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church is part of the ELCA (Evangelical Lutheran Church in America). We confess and believe in the Holy Trinity – the triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is Savior and Lord.
 
We believe and teach the Apostle’s Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. We teach both the Old and New Testaments as Scripture – God’s word given to us.
We believe the writings contained within the Book of Concord are faithful interpretations of Scripture and professions of faith.
We believe that we are saved by the triune God’s grace and there is nothing we can do to earn this freely given grace.
 
Sunday mornings bring us opportunity to hear the God’s word from Scripture, to pray as Jesus taught us (such as the Lord’s prayer), and come to the Lord’s table to received the triune God’s promised love and mercy in the form of Communion.
 
We live our faith not only on Sundays, but throughout the week. We pray for and with our fellow humans. We serve each other in a variety of ways. We gather together for devotions, Bible study, and fellowship.
 
 
Our Mission Statement: We, the family of St. John's Lutheran Church, through the redeeming power of the Lord Jesus Christ, have been called by God to +Faithfully worship, +Diligently study his Holy Word, +Regularly participate in the Sacraments and  +Constantly strive to reach out, serve and witness with care and acceptance to all in our community and world.
