Thank you for visiting St. Matthew Lutheran Church’s website! We hope you’ll be our guest in person soon (once this COVID-19 physical distancing is over!) so we can meet you face-to-face, learn your story as you learn ours, and see how we may come alongside of you in life’s journey as we follow Jesus, who invited people He met, “Follow Me!” (Gospel according to St. Matthew 4:19 & 9:9 in the Bible)

We follow Jesus because He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no one can come to God the Father except through Him. (Gospel according to St. John 14:6) He has turned us around from following the world to follow in His footsteps by calling to us and showing His gracious love through His Word, also known as sacred Scriptures or the Bible. With His Word, He tells us we are freely forgiven because Jesus paid the price of sin and its wages, eternal death, on the cross for us and for the whole world, so that whoever believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life. (Gospel according to St. John 3:16). Jesus has given the mission to make disciples, or followers, from people of all nations. He calls us to do this by baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything He has commanded. Thus, our mission statement is Reaching the Lost and Feeding the Found through God’s Word.

You may have noticed that part of our name is “Lutheran.” This doesn’t mean that we follow Martin Luther, but that we align ourselves with followers of Jesus who, like Martin Luther and others in the Protestant Reformation, are convinced from the Bible that we are saved by God’s grace, through faith in Jesus Christ. And because God has done all the work of saving our souls, we are also called and able to do good works so that our fellow human beings can see God’s love and grace for them, that they might also follow Jesus to eternal life. If you are searching for a church home where the people seek to follow Jesus, and receive His forgiveness when they fail, then there’s a place waiting for you in Jesus’ family here at St. Matthew Lutheran Church. Until then, please browse our website and follow any links to acquaint yourself with us and our denomination of like-minded congregations, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.
