Our Mission Statement
Growing Together in God's Love to Serve Others
Empowered by God, we the people of St. Mark will:
Our mission and vision are based on these values and beliefs:
St. Mark was organized in 1954 as the first congregation in the community of Circle Pines. Our address, One North Road, could point a person to conclude the life of the community begins at the church.
First organized by the interest and dedication of a number of families with Danish ethnic background, the church quickly grew around a strong emphasis on worship and education. A caring spirit toward our neighbors with an emphasis on being a welcoming place is a trademark of St. Mark.

Lutherans are Christians who accept the teachings of Martin Luther (1483–1546). Luther was a German theologian who realized that there were significant differences between what he read in the Bible and the practices of the Roman Catholic church at that time. On October 31, 1517, he posted a challenge on the door of Wittenberg University, titled “95 Theses” (to debate 95 theological issues). His hope was that the church would reform its practice and preaching to be more consistent with the Word of God as contained in the Bible.
Seven Habits of Discipleship
The St. Mark congregation studies and practices these Seven Habits through Faith Practices. They are part of the Call to Discipleship from the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.
