Who We Are

Who We Are

Note: Our pastors would love to answer any further questions you may have.

Why We Exist
Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church wants to preach and teach Jesus to you!  We are a congregation of approximately 1100 people.  We are a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS).  Our church was organized in 1882 to go make disciples in the world by baptizing and teaching.  For nearly 130 years we have been doing that by preaching the unchanging gospel of Jesus Christ.

What We Believe

We believe that the Bible is God's holy and perfect word (2 Timothy 3:16; Proverbs 30:5) and that is the guide by which we live.

We believe all people are sinful (Psalm 51:5; Romans 3:23) and, therefore, we deserve to suffer the eternal consequences of our sins (Romans 6:23).

We also believe that the Triune God loves us and the he doesn't want us to suffer, but rather to know Jesus as our Savior through faith (1 Timothy 2:3,4).  This faith is not something we can earn, but rather it is a gift from God (Ephesians 2:8,9) through which he freely offers forgiveness of sins and eternal life to all who believe.

Our Fellowship
Trinity Lutheran Church is a member church of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). We hold the three ecumenical creeds and the Lutheran Confessions to be faithful expressions of God's inspired truth revealed to us in the Bible.  In God's flawless word, we find a perfect Savior in every way.

WELS, characterized as theologically conservative, is the third largest Lutheran church body in America. WELS began in 1850 when three German pastors met in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Today, it has grown to over 1,200 congregations in North America. It has over 400,000 baptized members, which includes over 300,000 communicants, served by over 1,000 pastors.
