Our Beliefs


When we say, “St. John’s Lutheran Church is a caring place where everyone can live, learn and grow together in Christ,” we mean everyone!  All are welcome.St. John's Church

We seek to live out this broad and inclusive welcome in our worship by offering three different worship experiences and service times. Moreover, communion is offered every week at every one of our services along with this welcoming invitation: Whoever you are or wherever you are on the journey of faith, you are welcome to come forward to receive the bread and the wine, the body and blood of Christ our Lord.”

At St. John’s, the Lord’s table is open to all believers. You don’t have to be Lutheran to receive Christ. You need only accept his gracious invitation. Please join us.

What it means to be Lutheran:

Lutherans believe in the Triune God. God created and loves all of creation -- the earth and the seas and all of the world’s inhabitants. We believe that God's Son, Jesus Christ, transforms lives through his death on the cross and his new life, and we trust that God's Spirit is active in the world.

We are part of God’s unfolding plan. When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere. When we study the Bible or hear God’s word in worship, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story.

The convictions shared by Christians from many different traditions are expressed in statements of belief called creeds. These ecumenical creeds that Lutherans affirm and use in worship confess the faith of the church through the ages and around the world. The ELCA accepts the following creeds as true declarations of the faith of this church:
