Paul's is a church that is well-founded in the Word of God, its doctrine,
its structure, and traditions. Saint
Paul's has been serving this community since 1856. Actually, the church
had its early beginnings in 1854 when the congregation began meeting
in homes, but the church was officially organized June 1856.
its founding in 1856, the mission of proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus
Christ and specifically the message of salvation by grace through
faith in Jesus Christ has been the primary goal of Saint Paul's
Evangelical Lutheran Church. Through the years many things have changed,
including the area's names -- Antonia, then Glaise Creek, Head's Creek,
Otto, and now Imperial. One thing that has not changed is our faithfulness
to the Gospel of the Unchanging Christ.

in 1960. Our education facility, office wing and gymnasium were dedicated
in 1970. The sanctuary was damaged by a lightning strike and subsequent
fire in 2000, but the congregation's mission went on with the Lord's
blessings and the faithfulness of Saint Paul's members.
the years the Lord of the Church has bestowed His many blessings upon
us. We celebrate our heritage and past history with a true sense of
optimism and faith in our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. To Him be
Glory and Honor today and always!
