About us


Welcome to St. Paul's.  Founded in 1866 we are a congregation with a rich history that is also excited for the future.


Ultimately, our existence as a family of faith is the result of God's work in Jesus Christ.  We sincerely hope that you will join us in exploring that work together.

Who we Are:

St. Paul's Celebrates, Declares, and Demonstrates the Love of God in Jesus Christ to Sarver and the World.

  • CelebratesAt St. Paul's we celebrate to 1) remember the amazing things God has done for us, 2) be fed by God through Word and Sacrament, and 3) to declare and demonstrate the wonders of the gospel to the world.

  • Declares: At St. Paul's we are passionate about declaring the message of the gospel.  The story of how Jesus saves us is at the center of everything we do as a community.  To paraphrase the Apostle Peter we seek to declare, "the excellencies of him who called us out of darkness into his marvelous light" (1 Peter 2:9)

  • Demonstrates: St. Paul's is a community that does not exist for itself alone, but rather to demonstrate the power of the gospel in word and deed.  To use the words of Francis Spufford, we're seeking to give, "The unlimited generosity of God" to the world.

What we believe:

St. Paul's is a founding congregation of the North American Lutheran Church (NALC).  The NALC is a family of churches that are committed to "Christ Centered," "Mission Driven," "Traditionally Grounded," and "Congregationally Focused" ministry.  Our core beliefs are best summed up in the Historic Creeds and  are developed in more detail in the 

Lutheran Confessions.
