We believe that in the Lord’s Supper our Lord Jesus Christ is giving to us His true body and blood for the forgiveness of our sins (Matthew 26:26-28). Whoever believes these words: “Given and shed for you for the forgiveness of sins,” receives the very thing Jesus has promised.
We also believe that it is possible to receive Jesus’ body and blood to your spiritual harm if you are unprepared to receive this gift (1 Corinthians 11:29). And, furthermore, that communing at this altar is a manifestation of unity in doctrine amongst those who share this holy meal (1 Corinthians 10:17). Since it is our desire that you receive this gift to your good and so that we may have true fellowship with you, if you are not a member of a congregation in fellowship with the Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod we kindly ask that you would not commune during the Divine Service nor come up to the altar. However, please introduce yourself to the pastor before the service if possible. If you are a member of a congregation in fellowship with the LCMS, in good standing, agree with the doctrine of the LCMS, and desire to commune with us and the Lord when you are visiting St. Paul's or St. John's please introduce yourself to the pastor prior to the service. God be with you always.
The Divine Service is GOD's SERVICE to bring us the free gifts of salvation through His preached Word and His Sacraments, and to strengthen us in our Christian life so that we may repent of our sins and do good works. (Lk 24:46-47; Titus 3:4-8; Mt 26:26-27; Eph 2:8-10; Acts 2:42)
The entire Bible is the infallible and inerrant Word of God and the only source and rule of doctrine. (Heb 1:1-2; Rev 22:18-19)
*Beware, the ELCA and some other "Lutheran" church bodies do not believe this, therefore, they are false Lutherans.
The Lutheran Church is the continuation of the ancient Catholic Church whose doctrine does not change. (Gal 1:8-9; Eph 2:19-22)
*Beware, the Roman Catholic Church accepts non-biblical teachings under the guise of "development of doctrine." Such teachings include salvation by works apart from the Gospel of Christ (CCC 847), after conversion a Christian must merit/earn God's grace and eternal life by doing works of charity (CCC 2025), and besides Jesus, a human can be conceived without sin and remain without sin (CCC 491, 493). These teachings oppose Christ's clear teaching in Rom 10:13-17; Jn 8:36; Rom 3:20-26; Rom 6:23; Rom 5:1; Lk 1:47; and 1 Cor 5:21, for example.
