About Us


St. Paul Lutheran Church is:


But, not Roman Catholic. We believe, teach, and confess the faith once delivered to the saints, preached by the prophets and apostles, and believed by the one holy catholic and apostlic church throughout the ages. 


But, without the rock band. Our faith is founded on the good news of Jesus Christ who was crucified for the forgiveness of the sins of the world. By His death and resurrection, Jesus has defeated sin, death, and the power of the devil.


Our faith isn't only sincerely held in our hearts, but we confess our faith clearly before the world. Together with all Christians, we confess the three ecumenical creeds: The Apostle's Creed, The Nicene Creed, and The Athanasian Creed.

Additionally, we confess our faith in the Lutheran Confessions found in the Book of Concord.


In the incarnation, God took on human flesh in the person of Jesus and dwelt among us. God continues to desire to be with His people no less today. In the sacrament of Holy Baptism God washes us with water and His Word. In the Sacrament of Absolution God returns us to our baptism and forgives our sins. In the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper Jesus feeds us His body and blood for the forgiveness of our sins. God continues to dwell among His people through these means and so God is always near to us.

Founded on the Word

The motto of the Lutheran church is Verbum Domini Manet in Aeternum (VDMA), meaning The Word of the Lord Endures Forever, from 1 Peter 1:25. We believe that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant Word of God which is all true and applicable for our lives today.


Our worship is reverent, historic, and transcendent. In the Divine Service God descends to us on earth so as to dwell among us with His gifts of Word and Sacrament. The liturgy, lectionary, hymns, and prayers found among us aren't just something pastor thought up last week, but are the best of what the church has done for 2000 years.
