About Our Church


Who We Are

Christ head

Here at St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church, we believe that although there are many things that can fill a person's life, there is only One who can make life truly full. Through the preaching

of the Gospel and the new life we share in the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion, we confidently confess the One who can make life truly full and His name is Jesus.

 

Privileged to experience such fullness of life in forgiveness and love that God has shown us by His Spirit and His Son, we are equally privileged to carry that same love out into the world. From the altar and pulpit we become living receptacles of God's grace. In our homes and communities we have become the living dispensers of it. And so, as it is written in Scripture, "We love because He first loved us." [1John 4:19]

 

We are not perfect. We are sinners the same as everyone else who stand in constant need of their Savior. But we are not lost. We are forgiven and heaven-bound saints who have been found by the Lord in order to help and serve our neighbors.
