St. Matthew's Lutheran Church

Have you ever wondered if there are any absolutes in the world we live in? It seems that just when you have something figured out, it changes. The world isn't perfect and neither are we, but there is one absolute that we can count on and that is God's Word.

Most people know know there is a God but it is the Bible - God's Word - that tells us who that God is and what he has done for us. As we consider just how imperfect this world is and how we often fall short, God's Word tells us about Jesus. Jesus is God's Son and he came into this world to live a perfect life for us and then paid for all the times we fail, by suffering on the cross.

God comes to us in His Word to create faith in our hearts so that we can trust and believe in Jesus as our Savior. That is what God's Word is all about and that is the center of our preaching and teaching at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church.

We believe all of God's Word - from Genesis to Revelation - is true and that the Holy Spirit inspired the writers what to write and when to write it so that there are no errors or contradictions in the Bible.

We believe that a person goes to heaven by faith alone in Christ Jesus alone.

There are many other commands that God has for us in his Word about his will for our lives. Contact Pastor Matthew Schoell if you are interested in learning more or attending one of our Bible Information Classes that looks at the basic doctrines contained in the Bible.

We always welcome visitors and guests to our worship services and to our activities. If you wish to visit us but you are not sure what to expect, check out our FAQ: What to Expect When Visiting Us.
