About Us

Get to Know St. John’s

St. John’s Lutheran Church was established in 1857 by German Lutheran immigrants. Today we are a congregation in the Southwestern Texas Synod, ELCA.

As Lutheran Christians we believe that we are saved and made holy by God’s grace alone, through faith in Jesus Christ. We look to the Scriptures as our rule of faith and are nourished by the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion.

The fullest expression of our faith in Christ is expressed in the Liturgy of Word and Sacrament. When we gather, we are nourished by the Word proclaimed and received in the Body and Blood of Christ. We are not merely fed, though, but sent into the world as vessels of the grace of Christ in our community.

St. John’s Ministries

How we transmit the grace of Christ into the world has evolved with the community’s needs since 1857, but today we have active Men’s and Women’s ministries, we are partners in ministry with Escuela Santa Teresita in Sololá, Guatemala, and we are heavily involved with Christian Assistance Ministries (CAM).
