WE BELIEVE…
…in the Father, who creates and preserves all things. Genesis 1, Hebrews 11:1-3
 
 
 
…in the Son, who redeems the world by His death and resurrection. John 3:16; John 5:39; Acts 4:12
 
…Jesus Christ is both God and man. 1 Timothy 2:5-6; Colossians 2:8,9
 
…Jesus gave His life as the perfect sacrifice for our sins, resulting in our forgiveness and acceptance before God the Father. Isaiah 53:5; 2 Corinthians 5:21
…in the Holy Spirit, who brings and keeps people in saving faith in Jesus Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:3
 
We cannot believe in Jesus or come to Him without the assistance of the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:3
In Holy Communion, Jesus offers believers His body and blood in, with, and under the forms of bread and wine for Christians to eat and drink. 1 Corinthians 10:16,17
 
In Holy Communion God offers believers the forgiveness of sins and increases the depth of their faith. Matthew 26:27,28; John 6:54-58; 1 Corinthians 11:26

We are sinful at birth, alienated from God, and must be born again in faith. John 3:1-8, Romans 3:23; Colossians 1:21; Ephesians 2:1-5
 
God loves all people and wants them to come to love Him and each other.
(Ezekiel 33:11; 1 Timothy 2:3,4; 2 Peter 3:9; 1 John 4:16)
God’s Word is true, inerrant, powerful and has the ability to change lives. Romans 10:17; 2 Timothy 3:14-16; Hebrews 4:12
 
 
 
 
 
 
God has uniquely gifted each person to do good works which He expects His children to do.  Matthew 25:34-40; 1 Peter 4:10; Romans 12:3-21
 
It is not good for people to live in isolation. God intends for us to share His love with nonbelievers and believers alike through intentional relationships. Genesis 2:18; Galatians 6:9,10; Hebrews 10:25
 
The Christian faith is best lived in close relationships with other people. Proverbs 27:17; Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:9-13
 
Our greatest purpose in life is to be used by God to bring others into a saving relationship with Jesus their Savior. Matthew 28:19,20; John 20:30,31

Because we believe these things, that is why we do what we do at St. Paul. God loves all people and desires to connect with them through his love and grace. We, too, love all people and strive to help them connect their life and faith.
