About St. Paul


Our background

 Welcome to St. Paul Lutheran Church and University Center. Simply put, we are a congregation of Christians with resolute faith. We believe that if we love God and let our faith in Jesus show us how to love each other, the world will take notice and follow in kind! 

       We've known God's plentiful grace.
       We've experienced Jesus' love through His life, death and        resurrection.
       We've seen proof of His unfailing love.

Whether you're new to the area or have recently found yourself wandering in search of a new church home, we may be your answer. When you find a congregation that meets your spiritual needs, you become a witness to Jesus' love. 


Our beliefs

 With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God. 



To bring people to faith in Jesus Christ, raise them up through discipleship, and encourage them to express their faith within the community and throughout the world.

No matter what else we're doing, we hold steadfast to four values that are supported by love and define who we are:

       Transformational Lutheran teaching
       Engaging worship
       Authentic community
       Service-based outreach

To create a community of followers marked by steadfast faith and unconditional love.
