St. Paul Lutheran Church is proud to be part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The culture of St. Paul reflects the adaptability and spirit of acceptance of the ELCA, which was formed in 1988 from a merger of three Lutheran churches. Our roots, however, go back to the 16th century, when Martin Luther built the framework for our beliefs by seeking reform for the church.

As members of the ELCA, we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. We are accepting and embrace each person as a whole person – questions, complexities and all.

We are claimed, gathered and sent by God in baptism to proclaim His good news through word and deed, serve all people following the example of our Lord Jesus, and strive for justice and peace in the world.
