What We Believe

 

St. Paul Lutheran church is a member of the Church of the Lutheran Confession (CLC).

We are a gathering of sinners who have found joy and peace in Christ our Savior, who has freed us from our sins and given us eternal life through His death on the cross.

 

Our Pupose is to share that peace and joy with all though the preaching of the gospel.   We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, therefore it is true in all parts and is to be believed and followed.  If you would like to know more about St Paul Lutheran church and what we believe feel free to contact Pastor David Reim.

״FOR I KNOW THE PLANS I HAVE FOR YOU 'DECLARES THE LORD', PLANS TO PROSPER YOU AND NOT TO HARM YOU, PLANS TO GIVE YOU HOPE AND A FUTURE." Jeremiah 29:11 

My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.  And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand.
John 10:27-28

The CLC is a confessional Lutheran church body

which is dedicated to proclaiming the Good News of Christ crucified for sinners. It is represented by congregations throughout the United States and Canada, as well as throughout the continent of Africa, India, and neighboring nations.  Our teachings and practices are as narrow and broad as the Scriptures themselves since we bow only to the authority of our Lord’s inerrant Word.  The salvation won for us through the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the driving force behind our efforts as a confessional Lutheran church.

 

All of the CLC member churches confess that the Bible is the inspired and unerring Word of God.  They confess the creeds of the Lutheran Church without qualification, as they are found in the Book of Concord of 1580. Scripture itself is the source and foundation of Christian teaching and faith — The Lutheran confessions are a faithful setting forth of what Scripture teaches.  The name of our church body is a witness to what we believe; it is a continual reminder of our responsibility to be truly Lutheran, and therefore Scriptural in our teaching and in our practice.  This principle holds true among us: “If it is not Scripture; it is not Lutheran!”
