St. Paul's, A Community Church
St. Paul's is focused on becoming the church God is calling us to be. God must build the church. We are the people God is using to build it.
St. Paul's was organized in the Evangelical Reformed Tradition in 1872. Today we are a fellowship made up of numerous religious traditions. Our mission is following Christ's teachings to love God with all out heart, soul, mind and strength and by loving our neighbor.
Salvation is God's free gift to us, but we must accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. When we repent of sin, confess Jesus as Lord, and turn from our self-ruled life, we are saved.
About The Bible
The Bible is God's Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
About The Holy Spirit
We believe the only way possible to live the Christian Life is by God's power within us. All believers receive the Holy Spirit (the Spirit of God) when they receive Jesus Christ as Lord of their lives at salvation. However, believers are encouraged to seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit and to seek a daily dependence on God's Spirit to enable us to do what is right, and to obey God's command to "be filled with the Spirit."
About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return to earth to reign as King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
