What We Believe

In an age of chaos, we believe that God’s love is the only constant. 


In an age of anxiety, we believe that real peace comes from Jesus Christ. 


In an age of confusion, we believe that the Bible is the Word of God, without error. 


In an age of doubt, we believe that Jesus is true God who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. 


In an age of arrogance, we believe that all people are sinful and, therefore, deserve God’s punishment. 


In an age of guilt, we believe that Jesus died on a cross to forgive our sins. 


In an age of helplessness, we believe that Jesus removed the power of sin from our lives. 


In an age of hopelessness, we believe that Jesus rose physically from death – and so we, too, will rise to live with him in heaven. 


In an age of skepticism, we believe that God is at work in our lives through His Word (the Bible) and the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion. 


In an age of despair, we believe God’s promises to heal and transform us. 


In an age of violence, we believe that God calls us to embody His love in the world. 


In an age of constant change, we believe in the unchanging Holy Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 


Faith Lutheran is a Christian community with roots in the Lutheran tradition. We hold the three ecumenical creeds and the Lutheran Confessions to be faithful expressions of God’s truth revealed to us in the Bible.  


We are not alone in our efforts but are a part of a group of more than twelve hundred Christian churches called the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod or WELS. In fact, this church body helped us begin both our church and school efforts.  Besides Washington, the WELS is a worldwide church with congregations serving all fifty of the United States, as well as over twenty-five countries through world mission work.  


Today, in WELS, the gospel is preached and taught clearly in 1,286 congregations, 403 early childhood ministries, 324 Lutheran elementary schools, and 23 area Lutheran high schools.
