Christians, by definition, are part of Christ’s Church. The scriptural word church means “assembly.” Christians assemble. They gather together as brothers and sisters in Christ in their Father’s house. Jesus did the same.
“As was His custom, He went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day.” [Luke 4:16]
Christians desire to hear God’s Word purely taught and receive Christ’s sacraments. Hearing God’s Word purely taught means avoiding false teachers and false teachings. Saint Paul writes, “I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them” (Romans 16:17). Because Christian faith is fed solely through God’s Word, it matters where one becomes a member.
To that end, St. John is a faithful, family-oriented, caring congregation with much to offer. Our worship is both liturgical and reverent, our Bible classes insightful, our children and youth ministry engaging, and our many groups and fellowship activities offer ample opportunity for you to get involved and enjoy time with like-minded believers in Jesus Christ. Our members come from every walk of life, love and serve their neighbors in their various vocations, and are eager to welcome you.
