You Are Welcome Here
We are a diverse faith community of people always learning what it means to live a life of discipleship. We are Christian – worshiping and teaching in the Lutheran (ELCA) tradition. We live across the street, around the corner, in the West Bend area and in the nearby countryside.
We work in schools, factories, offices, fields and hospitals. We are laborers, students, retired and unemployed. We range in age from the newly born to seniors. We come from backgrounds of Catholic and Protestant, while some are discovering church for the first time.
We come together with our joys and sorrows, our faith and our doubts. When we worship together, sing together, study scripture together, enjoy fellowship together – we love and support one another to become one body in Christ. Make yourself known to the Pastor and Deacon, sign the guest book, and feel free to participate fully in the life of the church. No matter who you are, no matter where you are on life’s journey…
We gather together to explore and celebrate the wonder of Christ, equipping all to live a God-centered life.
Turning lives right side up with Christ, one person, one family, on community at a time.
What We Believe
At Our Savior’s Lutheran Church we believe that God has given us the mission of sharing Christ and all his goodness with the world around us.
We believe in a Triune God: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. We talk about what we believe with the words of orthodox Christian statements such as the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed. In worship we confess our need for God’s love and forgiveness and we receive Christ and his love in the sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion.
As part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we also act out our faith in what we do.
We support the education of children in our sister congregation, Fe y Esperanza Lutheran Church in El Salvador. We work in cooperation with partner organizations such as Lutheran Social Services and Lutheran Disaster Response. We support each other and our neighbors in times of great need, whether it is by spending time with them in a hospital room, providing meals, or helping them get back on their feet.
Martin Luther said that, “Faith is God’s work in us. It changes us and makes us to be born anew of God. This faith is a living, busy, active, mighty thing. It is impossible for it not to be doing good works incessantly. Faith is a living, daring confidence in God’s grace, so sure and certain that believers would stake their lives on it a thousand times.”
