Compelled by Christ's love, St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church exists to grow in the Word and go with the Word.
1. Give people a means of growing in the faith and its use, by providing a variety of experiences for educating and equipping them to live as Christians
2. Encourage people to go and share the Gospel in personal contacts and mission endeavors at home and abroad with those who do not know Jesus.
What We Believe:
This congregation accepts and confesses all the canonical books of the Old and New Testiment as the inspired word of God, and all the symbolical books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church, contained in the Book of Concord of 1580, as a correct presentation and true exposition of Christian doctrine, drawn from, and in full agreement with, The Holy Scriptures. No other doctrine shall be accepted in this congregation which is in any way at variance with the following symbols of the Evangelical Lutheran Church;
The Three Ecumenical Creeds - the Apostolic, the Nicene, the Athanasian
The Unaltered Augsburg Confession
The Apology of the Augsburg Confession
The Smalcald Articles
Luther's Catechisms, the Large and the Small
The Formula of Concord
