St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church is a member of Lutheran Church Canada and as such holds the same beliefs of LCC. We Believe that...

"God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life."

-- John 3:16 (ESV)

 

 

... there is only one God

 

... there is only one reliable source of information

... there is only one true faith

 

all who admit their sinfulness and believe in Jesus as their one and only Saviour are counted holy in God's eyes and receive eternal lifetherefore, we want to lead a God-pleasing life

 

 

The basis of all Lutheran teachings is the Bible. Martin Luther and the other reformers wrote a series of documents answering accusations that their teaching was contrary to commonly held beliefs and practices of the 15th century church. These defenses and arguments, based upon the Bible were presented before a series of theological gatherings. Eventually, they were compiled intoThe Book of Concord. These comprise the doctrine and confession of the Lutheran Church.
