What We Believe, Teach, & Confess:
St. Matthew Lutheran Church believes that the Bible is the inerrant, inspired Word of God and is a record of true events that happened in a real time and in a real place. We confess that the three creeds, (the Apostles, Nicene, and Athanasian) along with the Book of Concord and the documents contained therein are faithful expositions of Scripture. We boldly confess that Jesus Christ is both true God and true man, Who came down to earth, suffered, died on a cross for the sins of the world, rose again the third day and ascended to the right hand of the Father. The salvation which He alone accomplished by this work, He now offers to all mankind in the Gospel preached and the Sacraments administered.
St. Matthew Lutheran Church exists to proclaim the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ for the salvation of the world and to serve all people in acts of love, mercy, and charity.

The Service of Prayer
The people of St. Matthew seek to love one another by praying for the church, world, and one another during the Service of Prayer. This opportunity begins with the reading of Scripture and moves toward specific prayer petitions. Silent prayer is welcomed.
"And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you" (Colossians 1:9a, ESV).
Martin Luther said, "I still find it necessary every day to look for time during which I may pray."
