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
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 Second Commandment.
Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
What is meant by this Commandment?
We should so fear and love God as not to curse, swear, conjure, lie, or deceive by his name, but call upon him in every time of need, and worship him with prayer praise and thanksgiving.
Lev. 24:15,16; Rom. 12:14; Matt. 5:34-37; Deut. 18:10-12; John 8:44; Acts 5:3,8; Gal. 1:8; 2 Tim. 3:5; Ps. 50:16; Ps. 50:15; Matt. 7:7,8; Eph. 6:18; Matt. 6:6; 1 Tim. 2:1; Luke 1:68; Ps. 103:1-5; Eph. 5:20; Ps. 50:14.
