St. Matthew Lutheran Church Welcomes You!

Dating back to January, 1961, St. Matthew is a renewed Lutheran congregation moving forward in faith, focused on living out Christ’s Great Commission in our daily lives, to go and make disciples of all people. We provide two types of worship services. A traditional liturgy service is offered at both the 8:30am and 11am services on Sunday mornings. On Sunday evenings, we worship using a Contemporary service with music provided by our praise band, “The Fishtones”, comprised of guitars, keyboard, drummer and singers. ​ We believe in the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe. We believe Jesus Christ is the Word of God incarnate, through whom everything was made and through whose life, death and resurrection God fashions a new creation. We believe that the Proclamation of God’s message to us as both Law and Gospel is the Word of God revealing judgment and mercy through word and deed, beginning with the Word in creation, continuing in the history of Israel, and centering in all its fullness in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
