Victors in Christ
Serving the Victor Valley!!
A Note from Our Pastor
Rev. Daniel M. Wagenknecht
St. John Lutheran Church has been proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ in the Victor Valley since 1972. As the temporary vacancy pastor it is my privilege to serve God’s people at St. John and make sure that the Word of God is faithfully proclaimed each and every Sunday by a Confessional Lutheran Pastor. St. John decided last year that it would be better stewardship of God‘s gifts to sell our property on Green Tree Rd. and find a new site better suited to our needs. For the time being, we are meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn on Mariposa Rd., in the Mojave Room, each Sunday at 9:00 AM. Bible Study and Sunday School follows the service.
St. John is made up of people just like you. We are all sinful people with problems. We admit the truth of what Scripture teaches, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” The desire for forgiveness and peace with God is what brought us to him in the first place. The Bible tells us that through faith in God’s promise and trusting in the completed work of Jesus Christ, we have eternal life. Jesus is God’s Son and our human brother, who lived under the Law perfectly in our place, suffered and died for us on the cross to pay for our sins, and rose again to prove that he completed his work and will keep his promise to raise us up also. We believe the entire Bible is God’s inerrant, inspired Word, that it testifies of God’s plan of salvation in Christ, and that it is our perfect, unchanging guide.
At St. John, we want to keep that Gospel first in everything we do. We would love to share the grace of God with you. Please come and worship with us! You’ll meet some new friends.
