Who We Are

The ELCA was formed in 1988, merging the Lutheran Church in America, the Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches, and the American Lutheran Church.

What Lutherans Believe

As stated on the ELCA website (www.elca.org):

  • Members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America are connected to the faith of the church through the ages and around the world.
  • Lutherans believe in the Triune God. We are part of God’s unfolding plan.
  • When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere and of every time.
  • When we study the Bible and pray, 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.

Mission of St. Paul Lutheran Church

We are God's children, baptized and called to be the body of Christ in the world.  We desire to promote Christian witness and mission by being faithful servants and caring neighbors to others.  Our purpose is to share God's love with people of all ages and to reach out in love to the unchurched.
