What We Believe
St. Mark is a Christian church that belongs to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. As a Lutheran church, we believe that:
• Jesus and the Bible reveal God’s word in our lives. God’s word is living and active among us.
• The ten commandments, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Nicene and Apostles Creeds are central to our teachings.
• Baptism and Communion are essential “means of grace,” they are ways God shows us how much we are loved through physical objects.
• Martin Luther, who lived in Germany in the 15th century, was a religious teacher who helped our forefathers better understand scripture, and began this group committed to always being made new in God’s world.
