What's in our name?
St. Paul: The great first century missionary and inspired writer of 13 New Testament books who said, "I am not ashamed of the Gospel because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes" (Romans1:16). We believe, as did Paul, that God uses the Gospel message to save.
Evangelical: The New Testament word for "good news" or "gospel". We believe the good news of Jesus and what he did is the most important message in the world. We exist to share it.
Lutheran: Taken from the name of the sixteenth century reformer, Martin Luther, who taught that the Bible is the only authority for Christian teaching, faith, and life, and that we are saved by grace through faith in Jesus alone.
Church: A gathering together of believers in Jesus who are united in one faith and hope, seek to serve one another in love, and believe there is always room for more!

We are a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (our main office is in Milwaukee). Through this membership, we share in the work of spreading the good news of forgiveness and life in Jesus throughout our nation and in many foreign countries. Together, we also support the education and training of future pastors and teachers. If you would like to know more about the WELS please check out the official website at www.wels.net.

We are also a member of the Winnebago Lutheran Academy association. For more information visit their official website at www.wlavikings.org.
We baptize infants because all people are born with inherited sin (Psalm 51:5), and are included in Christ's directive to baptize all nations (Matthew 28:19). Through Baptism, the Holy Spirit brings our precious children to faith in the only Savior, Jesus Christ. Click here for more on Baptism.
The Lord's Supper is offered the first and third weekends of each month. Members are asked to sign their names on the communion register in the entryways on the day they commune. All guests are asked to first speak with either of our pastors before taking communion. Click here for more on the Lord's Supper.
Bible Information Class
Those who are not currently members but are interested in learning more about the Bible's teachings (and why we teach them), are invited to attend Bible Information Class. There is no cost or obligation. These may be scheduled by appointment with either pastor.
