What We Believe

Lutheran Church of the Incarnate Word is a congregation in the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod.

We may be a small congregation, but we dare to be Lutheran! Through Word and Sacrament, Lutheran Church of the Incarnate Word's goal is to deliver Christ and Him crucified, emphasizing the Theology of the Cross as opposed to a Theology of Glory. We're a Confessional Lutheran congregation, and a member of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod, belonging to the Michigan District. While other churches seek to be relevant and entertaining, we seek to be faithful to Holy Scripture and our Lutheran Confessions. We observe the Historic Liturgy handed down to us in the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church. You won't find the latest "Christian" fads and gimmicks in our church. You won't be entertained by "praise bands" or called upon to follow the bouncing ball on big screens. Join us for Divine Service every Sunday at 9:30 am (Holy Communion celebrated and received every Sunday). 

"With the universal Christian Church, The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod teaches and responds to the love of the Triune God: the Father, creator of all that exists; Jesus Christ, the Son, who became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings and to rise to life again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan; and the Holy Spirit, who creates faith through God's Word and Sacraments. The three persons of the Trinity are coequal and coeternal, one God."
