What We Believe





We believe in the Trinity (three persons in one God - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit) through faith.

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." Hebrews 11:1


We believe that Jesus has died to pay for the sins of the whole world. His resurrection on the thrid day assures us of our free salvation.

"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast." Ephesians 2:8-9


We believe that the Bible is the true and inerrant word of God. God's Word is part of the Means of Grace that the Holy Spirit uses to bring people to faith.

"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Christ the Lord Evangelical Lutheran Church is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). As a member of the WELS we believe:


Christ’s love, which he demonstrated by his perfect life and by his suffering and death on the cross, is the foundation for our relationship with God, the focus of our faith, and the motivation for all we do as Christians. In that same love for sinners Christ not only lived and died to set us free from sin and guilt, but he also rose again in victory on the first Easter Sunday, assuring us that his victory is our victory and that his resurrection is our resurrection. Saved by his grace alone, we look forward to his glorious return as we proclaim the good news of what his love has accomplished.
