A Brief History Our congregation was established in the fall of 1907 after a summer of preparation by C.E. Butler, a student from the Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. The charter membership of 27 eventually built and worshiped in a new chapel at the corner of sixth avenue and sixth street in 1914. The present church building on Twelfth Avenue just off Eighth Street was dedicated on November 22, 1925. Since then an educational building has been added along with several renovations to the original structure. St Paul is affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and is a member of the West Virginia-Western Maryland Synod. The synod sponsors Camp Luther held at Camp Caesar located in Cowen, WV each summer for a week of Christian Fellowship for the youth of the synod. Our congregation participates in the Huntington Area Habitat for Humanity projects, Faith in Action, Huntington Downtown Churches, and the Cridlin Food and Clothing Pantry. Several members of the congregation and the youth of the church volunteer at the local Ronald McDonald House.

As Lutherans we believe:

The Trinity

We believe in the Triune God - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God is the Creator and loves all of His creation. God gave humanity His Son to teach us about salvation and as a sacrifice for our sins. God as the Holy Spirt moves and guides us. We believe the Means of Grace are provided through:

The Bible

We believe the Bible is the written Word of God inspiring faith and a guide to our salvation through the living word Jesus Christ.

The Sacraments

A Sacrament, as defined in Luther's Small Catechism, is a holy ordinance, instituted by Christ, in which invisible heavenly gifts are bestowed upon us through the use of visible earthly elements. As such, we hold true that there are only two holy ordinances that meet this definition: Baptism and Holy Communion. As a confession of our faith:

The Creeds

Creeds are expressions or statements of belief. We hold and accept as true declarations of faith: · The Apostles' Creed · The Nicene Creed · The Athanasian Creed
