What We Believe



Abiding Word Evangelical Lutheran Church is men, women and children united in faith and worship for the purpose of reaching out with the Gospel to win the lost for Christ and nurture believers for lives of Christian service, all to the glory of God.

Statement of Faith

StatementofFaith_PageBanner1Abiding Word is a member congregation of the South Central District of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS).

WELS was founded in the state of Wisconsin nearly a centurly and a half ago, and now has congregations throughout the United States and Canada and supports foreign missions in many parts of the world. Our teaching is based on the Bible alone, not on human opinion or philosophy.

We believe that God has given the Bible to mankind to show the way to eternal salvation through Jesus Christ, and that the Bible is God’s truth in all its parts.  It is the only reliable guide we have for everything we face in life and death.
