How To Find The Answers For Yourself

Everything you want to know is in The Holy Bible.  It is the infallible, inspired complete Word of God.

The Bible's been around so long that although it should be an old friend, we neglect it for the newest fad to hit the publishing lists.  The Bible is the Word of God.  It was the first book Gutenberg turned out on his newly invented printing press.

Don't start at the beginning.  Please start with the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.  They tell of God's Wondrous Love to send his only Son to atone for our wrong doings.

Want To Know More?

You will find complete explanations of our faith in "This We Believe", a Statement of Belief of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.  It is available in English, German, Spanish, Norwegian, and Portuguese.

Our beliefs are outlined in complete detail, and just as important, why we believe it.  We hope you will take the time to explore our faith.  We would welcome any questions you might have.
