Our Beliefs

Lutherans believe in the Triune God.  God created and loves all of creation -- the earth and the seas and all of the world’s inhabitants. We believe that God's Son, Jesus Christ, transforms lives through his death on the cross and his new life, and we trust that God's Spirit is active in the world.

We are part of God’s unfolding plan. When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere. When we study the Bible or hear God’s word in worship, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story.

The convictions shared by Christians from many different traditions are expressed in statements of belief called creeds.

These ecumenical creeds that Lutherans affirm and use in worship confess the faith of the church through the ages and around the world.

The Confession of Faith of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is part of our founding constitution. The ELCA accepts the following creeds as true declarations of the faith of this church:

The Apostles' Creed

The Nicene Creed

The Athanasian Creed

 

Sacraments

Baptism
One of the two major sacraments in the ELCA.  In baptism God makes us His children, members of His church, and the Body of Christ; done with water in the name of the Trinity. Arrangements for baptism of infants and adults may be made by contacting the pastor.

 

Communion
The other major sacrament in the ELCA. In Holy Communion, Lutherans recall the saving acts of God and enter communion with Christ and Christians of all times and places. In this Sacrament we are fed spiritually with the Body and Blood of Christ. Communion at St. James is open to all who believe.  Lutherans believe and trust that in this sacrament Christ is truly present to heal our brokenness and empower our lives.  Gluten-free wafers are available upon request.
