Our Mission

The mission of St. Paul's Evangelical-Lutheran Church is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to administer his Sacraments faithfully and regularly. "For through the Word and the Sacraments, as through instruments, the Holy Spirit is given, and the Holy Spirit produces faith, where and when it pleases God, in those who hear the Gospel. That is to say, it is not on account of our own merits but on account of Christ that God justifies those who believe that they are received in favor for Christ's sake." (Augustana V)



From Luther's Small Catechism:1

PART IV.

THE SACRAMENT OF HOLY BAPTISM.

In the plain form in which they are
to be taught by the Head of a family.
Ezek. 37:26-28

OF CONFESSION.
Luke 10:16. Matt. 16:19. John 20:22,23.

What is Confession?
Answer.
Confession consists of two parts: the one is that we confess our sins; the other, that we receive absolution or forgiveness through the pastor as of God himself, in no wise doubting, but firmly believing that our sins are thus forgiven before God in heaven.
Matt. 18:17-20. Prov. 28:13. Ps. 32:5. Mark 2:7,10. 2 Cor. 2:10.

What sins ought we to confess?
Answer.
In the presence of God we should acknowledge ourselves guilty of all manner of sins, even of those which we do not ourselves perceive; as we do in the Lord's Prayer. But in the presence of the pastor we should confess those sins alone, of which we have knowledge, and which we feel in our hearts.
Ps.19:12. Matt. 3:6, 5:23-25. Josh. 7:19. James 5:16.

Which are these?
Answer.
Here reflect on your condition, according to the Ten Commandments, namely: Whether you are a father or mother, a son or daughter, a master or mistress, a man-servant or maid-servant -- whether you have been disobedient, unfaithful, slothful, -- whether you have injured any one by words or actions -- whether you have stolen, neglected, or wasted aught, or done other evil.
Ps.119:59.
