St. John Lutheran Church is a Christian congregation in Berlin, Wisconsin. Being a member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, the church’s message is that Jesus Christ as the only way to heaven. “We preach Christ crucified”…for your forgiveness!
As Lutherans, we believe, teach and confess that the Bible is the very Word of God. We believe that God gave the Bible to us, first to convict us of our sins, second to convert us to Christ, and third to guide us to live for him.
As Lutherans, we also believe that it is the power of the Word of God that makes the water of Holy Baptism, a washing of regeneration and renewal in the Holy Spirit. (Titus 3:5,6)
That is why we are willing to confess that there is one Baptism for or into the remission of sin. Furthermore, we believe that it is the power of the Word of God that makes the bread and wine in Holy Communion, Jesus’ true body and blood, given to us for the forgiveness of our sin. (Matthew 26:26-28)
We do not believe that we are doing anything for God when we are baptized or when we commune. In Baptism and in the Lord’s Supper, it is God who is giving us His gifts of forgiveness, life, and salvation. We invite you to join us as we gather each Lord’s day to worship and praise our Lord and Savior and receive from Him all the spiritual blessings He desires for us!
