St. Paul was originally known as Saul of Tarsus and did not believe the Gospel of Jesus of Nazareth. Saul was involved in locating and persecuting Christians. One day, Jesus appeared to Saul. That event changed his life. Saul was baptized and became an evangelist (speaking the Good News) and an apostle (one sent as missionary) of Christ.
This congregation began as a school in 1889, and a church in 1892. Over the years, the blessings of God and the faithful work of men and women have continued to bear witness to the life-changing power of the salvation that Jesus Christ brings to us through the Word and sacraments, just as they did for St. Paul about 2000 years ago. The present sanctuary is the third erected, dedicated in 1956.
At this point in our history, we continue to use our resources and energies to bring a changeless Christ to a changing world. We invite you to join with us as we live, worship, work and rejoice in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
