St. John's Lutheran Church

Mission Driven

Along with the North American Lutheran church, We believe that the mission of the Church is to preach the Gospel and to make disciples for Christ. We believe that making disciples in our congregations, in our communities and nations, and around the world must be a priority of the Church in the present age. Through our actions, prayers, and financial support, St. John's strives to support missions locally, nationally, and internationally.
