Our Beliefs and Practices
LUTHERAN CHURCH – MISSOURI SYNOD (LCMS)
St. Paul’s is a member of the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, a branch of the Lutheran Church. Our congregation accepts and practices the Bible-based teachings of Martin Luther, who inspired the reformation of the Christian Church in the 16th century. The teaching of Luther and the reformers can be summarized in three short phrases: Grace Alone, Faith Alone, Scripture 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.
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.
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.
For a complete and in-depth look at our beliefs and practice, we invite you to visit with one of our staff or connect with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod (LCMS) by reading the Belief and Practice of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.
