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

In the plain form in which they are
to be taught by the Head of a family.

Table of Duties:

(OR, CERTAIN PASSAGES OF THE SCRIPTURES, SELECTED FOR VARIOUS ORDERS AND CONDITIONS OF MEN, WHEREIN THEIR RESPECTIVE DUTIES ARE SET FORTH.)

Of Bishops, Pastors, and Preachers.

"A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach; not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous ; one that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity; not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride, he fall into the condemnation of the devil."
1 Tim. 3:2-6.

"Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers."
Tit. 1:9.
