The mission of St. Paul's Lutheran Church is summarized in the short statement, "Strengthen the Saved; Save the Lost."
This statement coincides with the Great Commission Christ gave to His Church, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:19-20, ESV)
Jesus Christ is worshiped and boldly proclaimed at St. Paul's as the Savior of the world. As Jesus so clearly stated, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16, ESV) It is through the proclamation and the hearing of this Good News that the Holy Spirit works saving faith in people (Romans 10:17). There is also great joy and thanksgiving at St. Paul's when the Holy Spirit, through the water and Word of Baptism, works in the hearts of infants, children, and adults, thus saving them (Titus 3:5).
On a weekly basis the Lord's Supper (Holy Communion) is received at St. Paul's. Here, Christ is present in a very special and promised way, offering His own body and blood, forgiveness of sins, and strength for daily living.
There is a recognition at St. Paul's that the faith that is begun in a new Christian needs to be nurtured through the Word of God. The pastors at St. Paul's preach sermons that explain and apply the Scripture in ways that are meaningful. An extensive program of Christian education is offered for children and adults so that all might continue to grow and mature in the Christian faith.
An Early Childhood Center, Preschool, and Elementary School (K-8) provide students with a high-caliber academic experience, one that is grounded in the Word of God.
In these and many other ways, the St. Paul's Lutheran Church community strives to "Strengthen the Saved; Save the Lost."
