About Christ Lutheran Church

Our Confessional Synod

  • We are part of a larger church body called the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod, WELS.

  • We are a confessional church that bases all teaching on Holy Scripture.

  • We are also an Evangelical church, meaning we exist to share the good news about Jesus. All Scripture centers around him.

  • Finally, we are a Lutheran church. We agree with the confessions of the Lutheran church which came out of the Reformation started about five hundred years ago. The Lutheran Reformation helped turn many Christians back to Scripture as the sole source of truth from God.

WELS churches and schools are found in all fifty states and in missions around the world. Find a WELS ministry location.

 

Our Scriptural Foundation

Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church, established in 1969, was founded on these eternal truths as revealed in God's inerrant Word, the Holy Scriptures:

  • The Holy Scriptures are God's Word and are inspired, inerrant, infallible, and supreme in all matters of which they treat. ( 2 Peter 1:21: 2 Timothy 3:16; John 17:17, 10:35)

  • There is only one true God --Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -- and he reveals himself in the Holy Scriptures. (1 Timothy 2:5; Matthew 3:16-17; 28:19)

  • God created all things in six normal days and created mankind as the crown of that creation. (Genesis 1, Psalm 8:4-8)

  • Mankind's fall into sin has corrupted the nature of every human being, making all men guilty of sin and therefore subject to damnation. (Isaiah 64:6; Romans 3:9-19; Romans 5:12,16; Romans 6:23)

  • God, through his grace, love, and mercy sent his only Son Jesus to suffer and die to pay the penalty for all men's sins. (John 3:16; Romans 5:6-8; 1 John 2:2)

  • All who through the work of the Holy Spirit believe that Jesus is their Savior receive forgiveness of sins, life, and salvation. (Romans 5:1; Romans 8:1 Titus 3:4-7; Acts 13:38-39; John 5:24)

  • As a believer in Jesus a Christian will strive to show his love to God by using his gifts and talents to help spread the Word of God. He will also help his fellow Christians and all men in every way that is consistent with God's Word. (Matthew 25:31-46; Matthew 28:19; Psalm 51:10-15; 2 Corinthians 5:14-15; 1 Peter 3:15; Galatians 3:10)

  • The Lord gave parents the primary responsibility for the Christian training of their children. (Deuteronomy 6:7-9; Ephesians 6:4)

  • The Lord also gave to his church and hence to each Christian congregation the responsibility to train its children according to the Scriptures. (Matthew 28:20; John 21:15-17; Ephesians 4:11-16)

  • A congregation calls a pastor and teachers to function in its midst as ministers of the Word of God. (1 Corinthians 12:28-29; Ephesians 4:11-12)
