St. James Lutheran Church believes in and confesses the Triune God (the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit). We witness to Jesus Christ as crucified and risen, Lord and Savior. In our teachings, worship practices, and preaching, we proclaim the good news, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which has the power of God to redeem and save all who believe in Jesus Christ.
We are a Christ-centered community that believes the Holy Scriptures (the Bible) are the rule and norm for our lives. We believe in primarily two sacraments: Holy Baptism and Holy Communion. We believe that the sacraments are means of God’s grace, through which we receive salvation and new life.
