​​About St. John's Lutheran Church

Who We Are

St. John's Lutheran Church By the Sea in Long Beach was born as a mission church of St. John's Lynbrook. We have been gathering here in Long Beach since the 1920s as a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.

In addition to our Lutheran worshipping congregation, our building is used extensively by community groups.  Go to the community group tab for information on groups and meeting times.

Our Philosophy

As Lutherans we believe in the amazing power of God's grace. The gift of life is given to all through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. We lift up the importance of the sacraments- Baptism and Holy Communion - where the infinite power of God touches our world.  Each week we gather to receive forgiveness and be refreshed in Christ's meal of his body and blood.There is always room for you at the Lord's Table. Please join us for worship and see what St. John's is all about!
