 We the members of St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church believe that in response to God's Good News we give God praise in all that we do, especially through worship together, Bible study groups, fellowship and mission outreach. We also believe that we can't always live our faith perfectly. That is why we need the forgiveness of our Savior Jesus.
