The message at St. John’s is simple: We preach Christ and Him crucified. In every Divine Service, Christ is with us, offering grace and forgiveness where He promises they’ll be: in His Word and in His Sacraments.
We welcome you to join us.Visitor Information

The world may call it a curse to be poor in spirit, meek, in mourning. But the Lord Christ calls it blessed. Our flesh may hate being merciful and making peace and rebel against the very notion because it stands to lose…too much! My reputation! Face! My creds! But the Lord Christ calls it blessed. And we may cower and recoil before the persecution and revilement heaped on Christians just because they are Christians. But the Lord Christ calls it blessed. Blessed, because it doesn’t happen randomly. Blessed, because it doesn’t happen even by the mere allowance of God. But blessed because it is God’s good pleasure.”
So, what makes someone a saint? Is it how they live their lives—helping others? Is it putting up with a certain unbearable someone— “Oh, she’s a saint, alright, for doing that!” Is it a certain number of miracles performed in their name? It’s none of these…
…faith takes God at His own promises. And God gives His promises in His Word. Wherever His Word is, there are His promises. And wherever His promises are, they create faith. That is the kingdom of heaven.
