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 I.

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.

In the plain form in which they are to be taught by the Head of a family.
Exod. 20:1-17, Deut. 5:6-21, Matt. 22:37-40, Mark 12:28-31.

The First Commandment.
I am the Lord thy God. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
[Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and forth generation of them that hate me; and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.]
1 Cor. 8:4-6, Matt. 4:10, Ps. 115:3-8, Isa. 44:6, 1 John 5:21.

What is meant by this Commandment?

Answer.
We should fear, love, and trust in God above all things.
Eccl. 12:13. Josh. 24:14. Matt. 10:28. 1 John 5:3. 1 John 2:15-17. Ps. 37:3-5. Matt. 6:33.
