If it's been a challenging week, what do you need? A friendly and caring atmosphere? Encouragement and power so you can leave behind last week's failures and move confidently into a new week? To be connected to something far bigger and better than your daily life? We feel that our group meets all these needs. But even more importantly, we know that our beliefs will fill these needs.
That's why we won't sugarcoat it. We know that your life is sometimes challenging. We know you have done things that you regret. We know there are no easy fixes to all of your problems. And we are in the same boat. We all live with guilt. Too often, our sin owns us. No matter how much good we do, it never seems to balance out the bad. This is why our message is saturated with the good news of God's love in Christ. In an often dark and difficult world, Jesus offers the only permanent solution to the real questions that bother us. Jesus' death on the cross provides us with certainty of forgiveness and the hope of eternal life.
Because we treasure what God has done for us, we take all of the His Word seriously. Where some might call our beliefs "old-fashioned," we love knowing that we believe that same thing that Christians have believed for hundreds and thousands of years. Our beliefs are so solid that they don't change with the tide of public opinion! For all of these reasons, we are proud to bear the name "Lutheran" and belong to the "Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod" (WELS). Our brand of Lutheranism places its focus squarely on Christ and on what God's Word has to say.
