About Lamb of God Lutheran Church
Lamb of God Lutheran Church was founded here in Lafayette in July of 2012 and began reaching out to the residents of Tippecanoe County. As a group of believers we are dedicated to sharing the most beautiful message in the world: that through the life and death of Jesus Christ, God has paid for the sins of the world!
From the beginning of our foundation we have built our foundation on the Word of God. We are dedicated to studying it as a group in our worship services and on our own in our homes. We also are dedicated to sharing God's Word with our friends and neighbors as we reach out to the community in Tippecanoe county.
Everything that we do is a result of what our Savior has done. God sent his Son Jesus to take away our sins through his death on the cross, so now we serve him with thanks in everything we do. We look forward to the future as we continue to grow in our faith and trust in Jesus and as we become a part of the Tippecanoe County community. In our future we have plans to offer many different opportunities to help and serve our friends and neighbors throughout the community.
But our local church has a wider reach than just Tippecanoe County. We are connected to a national church body who helps support our ministry here and we in turn support them in their efforts to spread God's kingdom throughout the world.
Lamb of God Lutheran Church is part of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). The WELS, characterized as theologically conservative, is the third largest Lutheran church body in America. With national offices in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, WELS began in 1850 when three German pastors met in Milwaukee. Today, it has grown to over 1200 congregations in North America. It has over 400,000 baptized members, which includes over 300,000 communicants, served by over 1000 pastors.
The synod operates four ministerial education schools: Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, Mequon, Wisconsin; Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minnesota; Luther Preparatory School, Watertown, Wisconsin; and Michigan Lutheran Seminary, Saginaw, Michigan.
As members of the WELS, we share with our fellow believers in our synod's stated mission:
As men, women, and children united in faith and worship by the Word of God, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod exists to make disciples throughout the world for time and for eternity, using the gospel in word and sacrament to win the lost for Christ and to nurture believers for lives of Christian service, all to the glory of God.
