We Are

Sacramental

We believe that God is abundantly rich in grace and promises to give us forgiveness of sin and every spiritual blessing where He has promised to meet us—in word, water, bread, and wine. The water and the word of Holy Baptism washes away sin, connects us with Jesus’ death and resurrection and brings us into God’s holy family, the Church.
Therefore…

We Baptize

The water and the word of Holy Baptism washes away sin, connects us with Jesus’ death and resurrection and brings us into God’s holy family, the Church.

We Celebrate Communion

We, as Lutherans, believe that at the altar, our Lord Jesus Christ delivers His true body and blood into our mouths. His gift of body and blood, given in, with, and under the bread and wine, bestows tremendous benefits…forgiving our sins, strengthening our faith, binding us to the Lord, and uniting us with each other.

If you are a member of St. Paul’s, St. Matthew you are welcome to commune with us without introduction. If you are not a member of either congregation, please introduce yourself to Pastor, one of our Deacons, or an Elder when you arrive.

Biblical

We believe the Holy Bible is the Word of the holy Triune God, the one true God, it is truth and the truth does not change. As such, it is the only source from which our preaching and teaching flows and is the center of all we do.

Lutheran

We, as Lutherans, believe that our faith is based on faith alone, scripture alone, and grace alone. As Lutherans we confess our faith as recorded in the Book of Concord which we believe is a faithful and accurate interpretation of the Bible.

We are part of something larger. We are a congregation of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod and are part of the larger, international, Lutheran community.

Liturgical

We believe that worship is not about what we do but what God has done for us. We believe that worship is response of prayer and praise to the God who has given us the gift of eternal life, something we don’t deserve. Our worship follows a liturgy, which is based on the Bible and has been part of Christian worship for centuries. Through this liturgy we are united with Christians around the world and those which have gone before us. Central to our worship is hymns, scripture, and the sacraments – which means we celebrate Communion each and every Sunday.

Family

While we may come from different backgrounds, have different experiences, and even come from different countries – we live in community. We are part of the family of Christ and we live it out in our daily lives. We worship together, we pray together, we have fun together, we grieve together, and we support each other. We do this because Christ first loved us…

Community

We are part of the community. We serve our neighbors. We are your neighbors. We would love to have you join us and become part of our family.
