Our Mission

  • We are committed to preaching and teaching the word of Christ and administering the holy sacraments for the forgiveness of sins, life and salvation.
  • We do this in accord with our confession of God’s word based upon the Lutheran confessions (the Book of Concord).
  • We express this tradition in the Divine Service.  We use the first four services in the Lutheran Service Book in rotation and therefore celebrate the Lord’s Supper every Lord’s Day.


To God alone is all the glory, honor, and praise since “every good and perfect gift is from above” (James 1:17). Nothing that is good and salutary happens apart from the grace of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Even our good works were prepared in advance for us to do (Ephesians 2:10). Thus, we believe in total and complete monergism that attributes both our justification and sanctification as coming from the Lord! Please read Ezekiel 36:24-27 as an example of our total and utter reliance upon the work of God in our lives. Therefore, it is our joy and duty to thank and praise Him as we exalt His Holy Name!

“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.” (II Corinthians 5:21)


Saint Paul’s was originally established in Laguna Beach in 1947 and then restarted in Irvine at Crean Lutheran High School on April 10, 2011 and we have recently moved to Concordia University Irvine Spectrum Campus at 16355 Laguna Canyon Rd, Irvine, CA, 92618. We are excited to see the Lord causing us to grow as we celebrate our new lives in the Lord Jesus.

Our motto

Grace Alone, Faith Along, Scrpture Alone, Christ Alone

To God alone is all the glory, honor, and praise since “every good and perfect gift is from above” (James 1:17)

What we do

We praise and glorify the Lord Jesus Christ as He comes to serve and bless us through His Word and Sacrament.

Why us

We follow a long-standing liturgical tradition that is based on God’s Word.  We also celebrate the Holy Eucharist and receive the body and blood of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins as He teaches in 1 Corinthians 11, Matthew 26:28, et al.
