Goodhue, MN - St. John's Lutheran Church - WELS

Goodhue, MN

St. John's Lutheran Church is made up of ordinary people like you who gather together around God's Word to receive encouragement as we journey through life to eternal life in heaven. Some of us are married, some of us are single.

Some of us are just getting started in life, and some of us are golden-agers. We come from a wide variety of religious, ethnic, and social backgrounds. But we all share a common faith in a God who loves all people and who proved it by sending his Son, Jesus Christ, to rescue the world from sin.

We have a lot to offer people. Our congregation's Lutheran elementary combines academic excellence with Christian instruction in a caring, moral environment. There are education courses and programs for all ages (especially the youth). Teens find opportunities for healthy, safe recreation. Parents find guidance for difficult situations. We visit sick & shut-in members on a regular basis. Counseling is available for everyone. We strive to get our members involved in living their faith through Bible study and prayer.

Most importantly, we share the good news of Jesus and his love. What a joy to know that because of his life, death and resurrection, all of our guilt is gone! We have his promise of eternal life in heaven. What a joy to know that God is smiling on you right now. He is with you to help you and bless you.

Here is a short summary of our beliefs:

We are a Christian Church. We confess Jesus Christ as the only Savior from sin and the only hope for eternal life.

We are a Bible Church. We believe that all of the Bible is the true Word of God and is never wrong. The Bible is the final authority for Christian teaching and life.

We are a Lutheran Church. We share the message that salvation is the gift of God by “Grace Alone, Faith Alone, Scripture Alone.”

We are a Confessional Church. We subscribe to the Lutheran Confessions

as compiled in the Book of Concord, 1580. (The Apostles’ Creed, The

Nicene Creed, The Athanasian Creed, The Small Catechism, The Large

Catechism, The Augsburg Confession, The Apology of the Augsburg

Confession, The Smalcald Articles, The Formula of Concord)

We are a Wisconsin Synod Church. We belong to a worldwide fellowship of

believers, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), united for

the purpose of sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ with all people.

We are a Community Church. We are a growing family of neighbors and friends sharing God's love to meet each other's needs.
