We'd Like to Share our Faith With You!
We are a congregation of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). The WELS is the third largest Lutheran church body in the United States. We began in 1850 in Milwaukee, WI. 

Today, the WELS has grown into a network of over 1,250 congregations in North America with close to a half million baptized souls served by over 1,240 pastors. The churches of the WELS operate 4 ministerial schools to train pastors and teachers for service in the Word. Together we support over 250 missions in the United States and over 600 congregations and preaching stations world-wide (26 countries spanning 5 continents and served by 100 missionaries and teachers trained in 36 different languages). 

Our entire synod walks together in their confession of faith and mission. We, at Faith Lutheran Church, have been in Mt. Pleasant, MI since 1978. We endeavor to preserve and pass on the whole and complete truth as it is found in the Bible.

Therefore, we believe, teach, and confess:

- that God created all that is seen and unseen in six twenty-four hour days (Genesis 1,2).

- that God created mankind and He is to determine how we should live (Genesis 1,2).


- that God is Triune, three persons yet one God, a fact beyond all human understanding (1 Corinthians 8:4; Matthew 28:19).

- that we have utterly failed to be what God wants and requires of us and therefore he has every right to punish us for our sins and failures (Romans 3:10-11; 6:23).  
 -that although many people try to gain favor with God by their "good" lives and works, God has made it clear that no one will get to heaven by their own accomplishments (Proverbs 16:25; Galatians 2:15; James 2:10; Romans 3:20). 

- that God is merciful and has sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to save us - not by telling us what to do - but by actually doing it for us (Hebrews 7:26-27; Galatians 2:16)

- that Jesus is both true God and true man in one person (John 1:1-2, 14).

- that Jesus is the only way to receive forgiveness, life, and salvation (John 14:6).

- that when Jesus died, he paid the full price for all sins of all time and for all the world (1 John 2:2).

- that Jesus rose from the dead, a fact that assures us of both his divinity and our salvation (Romans 1:4; John 11:25-26). 

​- that God gives us the benefits of Jesus' perfect life and death through faith and love (Romans 3:28).

- that the Holy Spirit works faith through the Word of God, the Sacraments of Baptism, and the Lord's Supper (Romans 10:17; 1 Peter 3:1; Matthew 26:28).

- that out of love and gratitude to God for saving us, and to give him honor and praise, we want to live God-pleasing lives (Titus 2:14; Psalm 100).
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through FAITH - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works so that no one can boast."
Ephesians 2:8-9

Devotion of the Day 

Matthew 27:50-51 “At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook and the rocks spilt. The tombs broke open and the bodies of many holy people who had died were to life.”

“And when Jesus had again cried out in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split.”

The tearing of the curtain which concealed the Holy of Holies in the Temple in Jerusalem doesn’t seem like a big miracle. It doesn’t seem to measure up to things like calming storms, crossing seas on dry ground or even casting out demons. But the rending apart of the 3.5 inch thick, 20 high veil was a demonstration of the incredible and incomprehensible power displayed by Christ’s atoning sacrifice on the cross.

The Holy of Holies was entered once a year by the High Priest on the Day of Atonement, to sprinkle the blood of sacrificial lambs offered as an atonement for the people and offer incense upon the Ark of the Covenant and the mercy seat which sat on top of the ark. This was done to remind the people that no one had the right to enter into the presence of God because of his or her sins. Those sins would have to be atoned for by a sacrifice. This was also done in accordance with God’s command to point the people to the true and only sacrifice which could and would atone for sin, that being Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God.

It was the rending of that veil which declared that the sacrifice required for sin had been made the moment Jesus gave up his spirit. It was the miracle of atonement for all sin of all time which allows us access into the presence of God. That is why Hebrews 10 says: “Since we have confidence to enter the Most Holy Place by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way opened for us through the curtain, that is, his body, let us draw near to God.”

The tearing of this 3.5 inch, 20-foot high curtain terrified the elders, Pharisees, teachers of the law and even the High Priest when it happened. It terrified them because they did not understand and actually rejected Jesus as the true atoning sacrifice. But to those who believe in Jesus as the true and eternal sacrifice for all sin of all time, it is the most beautiful demonstration of God’s power on behalf of his people. It is the miracle we call grace. And it is that grace which gives us confidence to enter into God’s presence. His throne is open to our prayers and to us.
