What We Believe
With the universal Christian Church, We confess the Apostles and Nicene Creed. These creeds summarize our beliefs.
St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church is a member of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God:
- The Father, creator of all that exists;
- Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and
- The Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments.
- The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God.
What does it mean to be "Lutheran" Church?
Our congregation accepts and preaches the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther that inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three phrases:
- Grace alone,
- Faith alone,
- Scripture alone.
Shortly after Jesus' suffering, death, resurrection and ascension into heaven, Peter clearly declares Jesus to be the only way to be saved when he said in his first sermon on the very first Pentecost, "There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12
