What We Believe

Rooted in faith and growing in God’s Word,
we experience joyful, Christ-centered praise and worship,
boldly share our faith, and serve all people.

We believe that the Triune God–Father, Son, and Holy Spirit–has called us to a life of repentance and forgiveness, by the blood of Jesus, the Crucified One, who takes away the sins of the world. In this same Jesus, our Risen Lord, we have new life!

Our worship is centered on God’s Word (through the readings, preaching, and music) and the Sacraments, the places in which God has chosen to reveal Himself to us, and create and nurture our faith, in order to equip and empower us to live lives as His disciples.

Our faith is rooted in Biblical Lutheran theology as a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod.  Our mission is to grow in faith, share the Good News of Jesus Christ to our community and world, and to remain faithful until Christ calls us to eternal glory.

We welcome all to experience the gifts of God alongside us in joy-filled, Christ-centered worship that is at the heart of Living Word Lutheran Church and Child Development Center.

The Lutheran Faith

Living Word Lutheran Church and Childcare Development Center is a member of the Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod (LCMS). Our church body operates two world-class seminaries, a university system (including Concordia University Wisconsin in Mequon) and a number of great Lutheran high schools, parochial schools, and childcare centers. Our mission is to proclaim Biblical truths grounded by these three principles: Grace Alone. Faith Alone. Scripture Alone. Click here to learn more about the LCMS.

Our Core Values


Our faith is rooted in God’s Word and Promises. In the waters of Baptism we are made children of God (1 John 3:1, Titus 3:5-8) and heirs of eternal life. Through our relationship with Jesus Christ, we come to know who we are, and in this our life is rooted.


We are never done growing in the faith until we have received the promise of eternal life. Through God’s Word and receiving the Lord’s Supper as often as possible, by the power of the Holy Spirit, God grows within us a faith which bears fruit in this world (John 15:1-8). 

Experiencing Christ

In worship, we experience the love of God as He pours out upon us His mercy and forgiveness, feeds us with food and drink from heaven, and works faith within us through His Word and the music of the service. We also experience Christ through acts of love and service, living out the love and forgiveness we have first received from God (John 15:13, 1 John 4:7-21).
