To put it another way, we believe . . .
that God is Triune: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Mt 28:19).
that God created us and the entire world in which we live (Gn 1:1).
that we and all people sin against God in our thoughts, words and actions (Ro 8:23).
that we and all people deserve to die physically and eternally for our sins (Ro 6:23).
that God in his love planned to save us and all people from the punishment we deserve (Gn 3:15).
that God sent his one and only Son, Jesus Christ, into this world to take our place (Jn 3:16).
that Christ lived a sinless life and innocently died for the sins of the entire world (1 Cor 5:21; 1 Jn 2:2).
that we and all people have complete pardon for our sins through Christ’s perfect life and sacrificial death (Jn 3:16).
that God makes this pardon ours by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Eph :8,9).
that faith itself is a gift given by God through the working of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor 12:3).
that the Holy Spirit works through the Gospel (Good News) of Christ in the Word of God and in the
Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Ro 10:17; 1 Pe 3:21; Mt 26:28).
that the books of the Bible are in their entirety the true Word of God and contain no errors (2 Tm 3:16).
that because of Christ’s life, death and resurrection we also can joyfully and thankfully live for him and with him now and forever (Ga 2:20; Jn 14:19).
St. John is where you can find the peace that only our Savior, Jesus, can give you. Give us a call or stop by and visit. We’d love to get to know you better!
