What We Believe


Sing to the Lord, bless his name; tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous works among all the peoples!
(Psalm 96:2-3)

St. John is a member of the Michigan District of the
Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.

We believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are the inspired Word of God, and are the only source and guide for what we believe and do.  Therefore:

  • We believe that the Triune God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, is the only true God.  He created the universe, including humanity, to exist in harmony with him and with itself.
  • We believe that because humanity rebelled against God, we are born sinful and unable to save ourselves.  The curse of this sin has destroyed the harmony in the universe.  We are in desperate need of a Savior to reconcile us to God and restore the broken relationships in creation.
  • We believe that God is merciful and that he sent the Savior because of his mercy alone, without any merit or worthiness on our part, when he sent his Son Jesus to live, suffer, die, and rise as our substitute.
  • We believe that the forgiveness and reconciliation won by Jesus on the cross is brought into our lives by God through his Word and Sacraments:
    • His Word, both when we read the promises of Scripture as well as when those promises are spoken through the mouths of his people
    • Holy Baptism, which is the promise of God connected to the washing with water for all people, nations, and tongues, regardless of age
    • Holy Communion, which is the body and blood of Jesus in, with, and under the bread and wine for the strengthening of our souls
  • We believe that God alone, working through Word and Sacrament, strengthens us in our life of worship in faith toward him and in love toward our neighbors and our world.
