Sharing the Love of Christ, through a loving and Caring congregation.
We believe, teach, and confess that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord, and that through faith in Him, we receive forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and salvation. We confess that “our works cannot reconcile God or merit forgiveness of sins and grace, but that we obtain forgiveness and grace only by faith when we believe that we are received into favor for Christ’s sake, who alone has been ordained to be the mediator and propitiation through whom the Father is reconciled” (AC, XX, 9).
Here at St. John, we have used our church name as an acronym. It is a reminder that we are called to “Share the Joy Of His Name.” Additionally, the phrase has been added “through a loving and caring congregation.” Of course, this is not a static pronouncement, but a calling to which we strive. What is certainly a constant is the “loving” and “caring” of our Lord that is proclaimed at St. John in every service. St. John Lutheran Church is a Confessional Congregation. We Confess Jesus Christ as THE Lord and also OUR Lord. We are a Lutheran Congregation because we are convinced that being Lutheran (LCMS) is the Right way to be Christian.
