About Us

St. John Lutheran Church is a diverse group of people who believe that God has gathered us together. We are a church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Freed by our faith, we seek to embrace everyone as a whole person — questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world.

 

Our Mission Statement is: “To Share the Love of Christ.” We do this through ministries of worship, music, education, service and fellowship.

What we believe

We are saved by the grace of God alone -- not by anything we do;

Our salvation is through faith alone -- a confident trust in God, who in Christ promises us forgiveness, life and salvation; and

The Bible is the norm for faith and life -- the true standard by which teachings and doctrines are to be judged.

 

Worship

A foundation of faith for everything we do.


For Lutherans, worship is an ever-changing and growing experience. Worship unites us in celebration, engages us in thoughtful dialogue and helps us grow in faith. It grounds us in our Christian roots, while demonstrating practical relevance for today’s world. St. John has weekly Traditional and Contemporary Services with communion at all services.


Statements of Belief

We 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.

When we serve others and address social issues that affect the common good, we live out our Christian faith.

We invite you to investigate our community of faith. Come and see for yourself by visiting us for worship or stop by our church office during the week!
