St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church has been a part of Citrus County Florida since 1973. Over the past four decades, it has been our mission to share the love of Christ with young and old alike in our community. We believe that God desires to have a meaningful relationship with you. Through our church and school who strive to bring people into a closer relationship with him through Jesus Christ, our Savior from sin.
We believe in the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that all mankind is terminally sinful and that only through the innocent life and death of Jesus Christ can anyone be saved. We believe that God has revealed Himself to us through His Word, the Holy Scriptures, and that these Scriptures are divinely inspired and without error. It is through these Scriptures that we are drawn into a closer relationship with our God and Savior.
Who We Are
St. Paul’s is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). As a church body with over 1,200 congregations together we are able to support mission work in over 20 countries around the globe as well as operate two preparatory schools, one pastor and teacher training college, and one Seminary so that we are able to train our own pastors and teachers for service within our church.
The purpose of our congregation is to proclaim Jesus Christ as the Savior of the world and to make disciples for the Triune God by preaching and teaching the Word of God and by administering the sacraments. Our mission is to reach out and evangelize the community with the Word of God; to lead sinners to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ; to strengthen believers to lead God-pleasing lives and to train believers as disciples, teachers, stewards, and witnesses for Christ.
