What makes First Lutheran Different?

As members of the WELS, we believe that the Bible is the inspired and inerrant word of God.  We also believe that the nine Lutheran Confessions are a correct explanation of the teachings of the Bible.  

The nine Lutheran Confessions are:

  • The Apostles' Creed

  • The Nicene Creed

  • The Athanasian Creed

  • Luther's Small Catechism 

  • Luther's Large Catechisms

  • The Augsburg Confession 

  • The Apology to the Augsburg Confession

  • The Smalcald Articles

  • The Formula of Concord

For more questions on any of these teachings please contact one of the pastors..

How can I get involved?

First Lutheran offers many opportunities for all members whether young or aged.  There are a variety of committees and fellowship groups that plan and dedicate their time to serving the church and school.
