Saint Matthews Churches was started by fifteen born-again families of different faiths. One of the original fifteen founding fathers, from 1951, is still living and actively serving on the Churches of Saint Matthews board. Some of the other founding fathers are still alive and serving but are now up in age; one is 89, and one just passed away at 93. The board members of Saint Matthews are not family members. In addition to the executive church board, there is a very large board of advisors. In this website there are photographs from the church’s extensive archives, which show some of the churches that this ministry has shepherded over the last half century, and churches that we still pastor. More churches are being planned in the future of Saint Matthews Churches in the United States and overseas. If Saint Matthews ever plants a church in your city, we will write to you about it, if you are a member, but we are not a large organization, and we can only do so much.

Now, more than a half of a century after Saint Matthews Churches was founded, there are people of all faiths and denominations who worship with us. Some people who belong to Saint Matthews have never belonged to a church before. We have a motto here at Saint Matthews Churches: “If you’re tired of sin, come on in.” Your Heavenly Father is waiting to bless and love you and change your life for the better. We are here to love and help you, and not judge or condemn. Saint Matthews is a church of love and compassion. We want to pray with you and for your unsaved loved ones. If anyone in your family needs prayer, send their first name only to us. (God knows their name.) And, we will pray for them until you tell us to stop praying.

At Saint Matthews mother church, there are four pastors and two onsite bishops who rotate weekly on delivering the sermons for each week. (See photos of the Cathedral of Saint Matthew.) Twenty-eight volunteer teachers instruct the 300 little ones, at our mother church, about the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Saint Matthews Churches have eighteen ministers who help preach and teach the Gospel of our Lord and Savior.  There are plans to add more clergy to the staff as we add more churches (St. Mark 16:15).

Saint Matthews clergy follow Jesus’ example of foot washing in a special church service to humble us before our holy God. “He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded…If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.” St. John 13:4-16.
