Saint Matthew's Lutheran Church was founded in 1908. During
its one hundred year history the church has held fast to the Reformation principle of One Lord, One Faith, One scripture,
One Baptism, One Grace.
Today, however, is not the Middle Ages. Today is the 21st century.
Things have changed. People have a different world view. And the Church is understood differently.
Saint Matthew's is eager to engage this new time, to interact
with people of today. God is relevant for our time, for the ordinary lives we live.
God is active in our midst and wants us
to reach out and touch people.
This church is dedicated to Jesus the Christ, who is the
Son of God, the son from the womb of the virgin, the only begotten of the Father, the Redeemer and Savior of the world.
It is also dedicated to the holy Virgin Mary. She is the
(Theo tokas,) The God bearer, the mother of God.
This ministry is dedicated to the holy archangels Michael
The archangel Michael is the patron
saint of the clergy, the Defender of the Church, the Guardian of the sacraments and the Protector of the faithful.
The archangel Gabriel was given the
very special privilege to announce to the Virgin Mary the conception of Jesus.
We encourage our fellow
Christians to join with us in a great crusade to renew and restore the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church on this earth
in union with the Holy See of Rome and the Holy Brethren of the one holy catholic and Orthodox Church of the East.
All of this for the purpose of
lifting up the Name of our Lord Jesus, as the Savior of the world and the only person who can give meaning and purpose
to our human lives.
We promote the unity
of God, the unity of the Church and the unity of the human race: in order that:
We can enjoy this life we have been collectively
We can earnestly and confidently look forward
to THAT LIFE, yet to be given to us, whereby we may see and enjoy the vision which is the face of God. Amen…
Thank you holy Mother and thank you Saint Michael…
With all honor to St. Joseph
With all honor to St. Gabriel- chosen to announce the conception of our Lord Jesus.
all honor to the special person, Mary, whose response of total obedience and dedication was the appropriate response to the
All Knowing, All Powerful, and All Merciful-who is the Father-God.
