Faith Lutheran Church of West St.Louis Count has as her number one priority the preaching and teaching of Jesus Christ as Savior of all mankind. His death on the cross was payment in full for all the sins of the world. His resurrection and ascension were the glorious end to His ministry here on earth and proof that He is indeed the very Son of God who He claimed to be.

The members of this congregation believe and boldly confess that the Bible is God’s Word, given to us for the purpose of bringing men, women and children to know Jesus Christ as their own personal Savior. Therefore, the scope of our teaching goes no further than the Bible and we are also very careful not to leave anything out. We teach God’s commandments to show us our sins. And we teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to show God’s gracious, and loving kindness to the world in the forgiveness of those sins.

These words are found in Scripture, “But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses made us alive together with Christ… For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves it is a gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” Ephesians 2:4-9  For this reason we gather to praise, worship, and grow closer to our gracious and loving God.

We are a member congregation of the Church of the Lutheran Confession and thus in full agreement with the doctrinal positions set forth by this body of believers.  Please reference the CLC Statement of Faith and Purpose
