St. Paul Lutheran Church is a congregation of believers in Jesus Christ as the Lord and Savior of the world. As such we hold to...
God loves the people of the world, even though they are sinful, rebel against Him and do not deserve His love. He sent Jesus, His Son, to love the unlovable and save the ungodly.
By His suffering and death as the substitute for all people of all time, Jesus purchased and won forgiveness and eternal life for them. Those who hear this Good News and believe it have the eternal life that it offers. God creates faith in Christ and gives people forgiveness through Him.
The Bible is God's inerrant and infallible Word, in which He reveals His Law and His Gospel of salvation in Jesus Christ. It is the sole rule and norm for Christian doctrine.
...The Holy Bible and the Lutheran Confessions
While the Holy Bible is the sole source and norm of the doctrines of our Christian faith, along with other Christians we also confess the Three Ecumenical Creeds, as being true and biblical expressions of the Christian faith and our belief in the Triune God-Father, Son and Holy Spirit. As Lutheran Christians, we also believe, teach and confess the Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church as contained in the Book of Concord of 1580 as being a true exposition of the Holy Scriptures.
