About Us

Our Beliefs

image343


  

We believe in one God in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – the Holy Trinity.



We believe that Jesus Christ – true God and true man – died to pay the debt of our sins and rose again to give us Eternal Life. We believe that those who believe this and are baptized shall be saved (Mark 16:16).



We believe that the Bible, in its original manuscripts, is the divinely-inspired and inerrant Word of God and is our final authority in all matters of faith and life.


We accept the Apostles’, Nicene and Athanasian Creeds as true declarations of the scriptural faith we believe, teach and confess.


  

We believe that the Holy Spirit calls us through the Gospel to be followers of Jesus and gives us the faith to believe in Jesus as our Savior and Lord. The Holy Spirit also draws believers in Christ together to be the Church, which the Bible calls the “Body of Christ”.

Our Practices

image344

 

  

We practice the baptism of infants and understand Scripture to say that it is also a “means of grace” – a way that God gives us forgiveness, life and salvation.


To help parents lead their children into a personal saving relationship with Jesus, we offer Sunday School, Vacation Bible School and weekly Children’s sermons. We also offer Bible study for junior and senior high students (called “confirmation”) and for adults.


After a 2-year study of the entire Bible and the basics of the Christian Faith in 5th and 6th grades, we invite young people to “confirm” their faith in Christ as their personal Savior and Lord.

  

 We strongly encourage our St. John members and all believers in Christ to be faithful in prayer (Romans 21:12) and in reading and studying the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16).


We are a “Lutheran” church and are part of Lutheran Congregations for Mission in Christ (LCMC), an association of 941 congregations in 42 states and territories and 15 countries.

Our Worship

image345

 

  

Our weekly worship always includes music and singing. At the beginning of worship, we confess our sins and receive the assurance of God’s forgiveness. Our worship includes the reading of Scripture from both the Old and New Testaments and preaching on one of those readings. We receive an offering to remind ourselves that all that we have is a gift from God and also to further our Lord’s work – locally, nationally and world-wide.



We offer the Lord’s Supper – Holy Communion – at Sunday worship the 1st, 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month. We believe, as the Bible says, that Jesus commanded us to partake often of this wonderful meal for the forgiveness of sins, and that it is, therefore, a means of receiving God’s grace.
