Welcome to St. Paul’s Lutheran Church & School!

St. Paul’s Ev. Lutheran Church & School, located in Saginaw, Michigan, is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.


What We Believe…

Motivated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, St. Paul’s Lutheran exists to teach the whole counsel of God. Using Word and Sacraments, we will seek to nurture the faith and life of our members, as well as share God’s message and with our entire community and (through the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod) with the world.

St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church was organized in 1851 so that with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, it might strengthen the faith of its members and reach out into the community and the world. To carry out this purpose we believe and teach –

  • that the Bible is the infallible Word of God and the only foundation for Christian faith and life;
  • that the Lord God revealed in the Bible (the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) is the true and living God;
  • that all people have sinned against His holy will, fall short of His glory, and therefore deserve to be condemned eternally;
  • that Jesus Christ came into the world to deliver all people from the guilt and power of sin and that he lived and died and rose again as the perfect and only Substitute;
  • that through faith created by the Holy Spirit the benefits of Christ’s work are received personally;
  • that on the last day Jesus will return to judge the living and the dead and will take all those who trust in him into eternal life.

We join in that confession with over 1,200 congregations of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod and with them carry on a world-wide ministry.

    Welcome to the St. Paul’s Lutheran Church Member-to-Member Business Directory!

    The purpose of the Business Directory is to make available the names and basic contact information of church members who own businesses. The intent is to create a friendly, community-building tool, linking St. Paul’s members looking for goods and services with other members providing those goods and services.

    This directory listing is to Serve others.... It's not about making a living, buying low and selling high, getting by on as little as possible. It is about SERVING. It is not about using church relationships for making a living, but about SERVING others. It is not about using church relationships to get a job done as cheaply as possible, but about SERVING the person working for you. It is about being a blessing to those you work for and those who work for you.
    Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. — Colossians 3:23
