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.
Matt. 6:9-13. Luke 11:2-4. Ps. 55:17. 3

The First Petition.

Hallowed by thy name.
Lev. 22:32. Ps. 72:19.

What is meant by this Petition?

The name of god is indeed holy in itself; but we pray in this petition that it may be hallowed also by us.
Isa. 6:3. Ps. 111:9. 1 Pet. 1:15,16. 1 Pet. 3:15,16.

How is this effected?

When the word of God is taught in its truth and purity, and we, as the children of God, lead holy lives, in accordance with it; to this may our blessed Father in heaven help us. But whoever teaches and lives otherwise than as God's word prescribes, profanes the name of God among us; from this preserve us, Heavenly Father.
Tit. 1:9-13. Matt. 5:16. 1 Pet. 2:12. Phil. 2:13. 1 Tim. 6:3-5. 2 Tim. 4:3. Phil. 3:18,19. Ps. 19:7-11. 2 Tim. 3:2-5. 2 Thess. 3 : 3.
