New Life Lutheran Church is a member congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS) and is in fellowship with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). We surely live in a sinful world that is worthy of nothing good from God. When we look into our own hearts, we also see imperfection because we are guilty of sins against God in what we think, what we do and what we say. This makes each of us worthy of nothing good from God.
But thanks be to God, there is good news! The Bible tells us that God still loves the world; He doesn’t want anyone to perish. Therefore He has provided a way to escape from the just punishment of our sins. In His love and grace, He sent His only-begotten Son Jesus Christ into the world to be our Savior. It was Jesus who lived a perfect, sinless life and then died on the cross of Calvary to pay the penalty for our sins. All of this is proven by the fact that Jesus didn’t stay dead, but rose from the grave three days later. By faith in Him we now have the forgiveness of all our sins and the sure hope of eternal life when we leave this world.
This Gospel message can be summarized in a threefold statement. We are saved…
By Grace Alone. We didn’t and couldn’t do anything to fix our relationship with God. He did all for us so that He could declare us to be righteous, like His Son. God’s love towards humans, who didn’t deserve that love at all, is called “grace.”
By Faith Alone. Since we can’t save ourselves Christ is the only one to turn to. Through the gift of faith, which is also given to us by God, we receive Christ’s life as ours and are saved for eternity.
Through Scripture Alone. Humanity can know little about God, who is wholly separated from us, unless He reveals it. He does so through His word, the Bible, which is also given to us by Him and is, accordingly, without error. You have almost certainly heard otherwise, and we invite you to bring any concerns that you would have over this to us so we can, together, examine the Word and address them.
You are invited to come to New Life Lutheran Church and hear the saving message proclaimed by God in His Word. We meet each Sunday morning at 10:00 am. Bible studies are held most Sunday mornings at 9:00 am.
