Our church is made of a Christian family, firm in the foundation of Christ. We proclaim Jesus, both God and man, as Lord and Savior. We stand wholeheartedly on the teachings of the Bible as God’s divinely inspired, inerrant Word. We are a Bible-teaching church. We leave political and social advancement to the sphere of our responsibility as Christian citizens, while in the church we concern ourselves with our God-appointed business: the salvation of immortal souls through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20; Ephesians 2:8-9). Our church belongs to a larger family of Christians known as the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS).
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Mark 10:14). By these words Jesus indicated His love for children and His desire that they be brought to Him so He might bless them. The members of Gethsemane Lutheran Church have established a preschool to bring children to Jesus, so they might learn to know His love for them and to trust in Him as their Savior.
