ST John's Evangelical Lutheran Church502 W Chestnut St, Rome, NY 13440
St. John's congregation began its ministry in 1867 with a membership of 40 souls. It has been a member of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod since 1890. We endeavor to maintain purity of our Bible centered teaching and bring the saving grace of God through Jesus Christ to everyone.We believe God exists and may be known by all people, having revealed himself in nature and divinely inspired scripture as a triune being: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.We believe God created the world and all that is in it, including man, who fell prey to sin in the beginning, causing all of us to inherit this same sinful nature.We believe our sin separates us from God, who nevertheless sacrificed His son Jesus Christ to reconcile us with Him. Christ is our prophet, priest and king who by His death and resurrection provides forgiveness of our sins and eternal life with God in heaven.We believe God sent His Son to die for us as a sign of His great love for us. It is by God's grace that we are saved from condemnation of our sins.
