We believe Jesus changes everything.

Core Values

Our core values power everything we do.

At Divine Savior Church everything we do is guided by what we find in the Bible and see demonstrated in the life of Jesus. Our core values guide what we do, direct how we interact with others, and define the way we live our lives.

We thrive on more joy than guilt.

Jesus frees us from the guilt of falling short. This message is called the gospel. It’s what Christianity is all about. You will hear this in our sermons, see it in relationships, and experience it yourself in the assurance of God’s grace through Jesus.

We seek to become more like Jesus.

While no one’s perfect, we want to follow Jesus by putting into practice what He teaches us in the Bible. We encourage each other towards continued spiritual growth. With God’s help, we want to become disciples of Jesus who are continuously growing to become disciple-makers for Jesus.

We support each other like family.

Church isn’t just what we do on Sunday mornings. It’s who we are as we do life together during the week. We pray together, study God’s Word together, and help carry each other’s burdens. We don’t want anyone to walk through life alone. We strive to create groups where people can feel like they belong and find Christian friends who become like family.

We take God's truth seriously.

We are committed to faithfully teaching all of the Bible—even the parts that are difficult or make us feel uncomfortable. This keeps all of us humble. No one is better or above anyone else. We all need Jesus!

What We Believe

And why it can change your life — today.

In an age of anxiety, we believe that real peace comes from Jesus Christ.

In an age of confusion, we believe that the Bible is the word of God, without error, and it will endure forever.

In an age of doubt, we believe that Jesus was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.

In an age of guilt, we believe that Jesus died on the cross to remove the power of sin from our lives.

In an age of hopelessness, we believe that Jesus rose physically from death–and so too will we rise.

In an age of skepticism, we believe that God is at work in the sacraments of Holy Baptism and Holy Communion.

In an age of despair, we believe God’s promises to heal and transform us.

In an age of violence, we believe that God calls us to embody his love in the world.

In an age of constant change, we believe in the unchanging Holy Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Our History

Connected to a worldwide network for over 165 years.

Divine Savior Church is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). The WELS is a group of nearly 400,000 men, women, and children in over 1,300 congregations united by a common faith in the saving love of Jesus.

We share a commitment to be faithful to the Bible. We also share the statement of faith found in the creeds that Christians have confessed together for centuries.

“God gathered us to work together and blessed the faithful efforts of all those who have gone before us. We remain together to work as brothers and sisters in Christ and to proclaim the wonders of God’s grace to all the world”

Together in Christ: A History of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod

What is Lutheranism?

Celebrating a rich heritage for more than 500 years.

Over 500 years ago, the Christian church was corrupted by many false teachings.

A man named Martin Luther led people back to the teachings of the Bible. His work, and that of his friends, is called the Reformation. Through Luther, God restored the church to purity of doctrine and a new life of faith in Christ.

The doctrines of the Lutheran Church are not new. They are the teachings of the Bible. Thus the Lutheran Church is not a new church. It is not a sect or cult. It is a church whose teaching is based on the words written by the prophets of the Old Testament and the apostles of the New Testament. The Bible tells us about Jesus Christ.

The teachings of the Lutheran Church are those of the original, ancient church of the apostles and early Christians.
