WHAT WE BELIEVE

With the universal Christian Church, and as part of the Lutheran Church, St. John's Lutheran Church teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We accept that the Holy Bible is God's Word, and teach 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 short phrases: Grace alone, Scripture alone, Faith alone.

“We do not come to God as strangers pleading for special favors, but as those He calls His children”

Father, we thank You for all Your answers – the “no” answers, the “not yet” answers, and the “yes” answers, because we know that You know best!

Lord, hear too the other prayers of our hearts – the prayers not mentioned aloud – the prayers that are deep inside us. Hear our prayers for healing – for peace – for forgiveness – for quiet – for grace upon grace…

All these things we ask in the name of Jesus.  Amen.
