What We Believe


  • St. John Lutheran Church is a community of faith that believes in a loving God evidenced by Jesus Christ - historical and living.

  • We see science and faith as valued partners in helping us understand life’s meaning.

  • We know that every person is a child of God with unique strengths that can powerfully express God's love!

  • In response to God’s love for all people, we welcome young and old; families, couples and singles; rich and poor; persons of all races, ethnicities, backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities. We also welcome those with differing physical and mental abilities as well as believers and seekers. Every person joining our community adds profound value to the mystery of faith!

  • Through worship, service and fellowship our community of compassion invites you to come and see who and what we are.
