What We Believe

  • Saint Peter Lutheran Church is a church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. We believe in one God who comes to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in God as our creator, and as one who cares for us as a parent would a child. We believe God has shown his love for us in becoming human in Jesus Christ. We believe through Jesus' death and resurrection we are given life, hope and salvation. We believe God continues to be with us, active in our lives and in the world through the Holy Spirit.

    The areas affected include Lee, Ogle, DeKalb, Winnebago, Boone and McHenry counties in Illinois.
    “The tornados did great damage in communities that are a significant part of our synod,” the Rev. Gary Wollersheim, bishop of the ELCA Northern Illinois Synod, wrote in an April 10 pastoral letter to members of the synod. “We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed.” See more...
