St. John the Divine Church

St. John the Divine Church is a historic, orthodox, confessional parish "built on Christ Jesus himself" (Ephesians 2:20). We adhere to the Gospel message of salvation by grace alone, through faith alone, upon Scripture alone. In a culture full of anger, fear, and loneliness, we have the vision to be an intentional Lutheran community where the Gospel is proclaimed boldly, the Sacraments celebrated joyfully, the Faith taught clearly, the cross is embraced prayerfully, and we serve humbly.

St. John the Divine is a confessional, liturgical parish where the Sacrament of the Altar is celebrated weekly. If you are not a member of a Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod or a part of a church body that shares Altar and Pulpit fellowship with the LCMS, please make every effort to visit with the pastor before communing. You may reach our pastor, Pastor Ike Nicholson, by contacting him here.

John 1:1-5

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

What We Believe

St. John the Divine is gladly in fellowship with the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod and all her partner church bodies in the International Lutheran Council throughout the world. We trace our heritage through the Reformation to the ancient church established by Christ himself.
