Stand With Us

Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in one spirit, contending as one man for the faith of the gospel without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you” (Phil. 1:27-28a).

United in agreement under the Lutheran Book of Concord of 1580, and fully confident in this confession, we Lutherans stand, without fear, to face the issues which threaten our unity. We stand publicly. We stand, as members of WELS, in our own name. We stand to address divisive issues, and contend for the truth of Scripture and the Lutheran Confessions. And we invite you, dear brother, to stand with us.

In what do we invite you to join “with intrepid heart, willing to appear before the judgment seat of Christ?” To what do we ask you, with great consent, to subscribe your name? To the Biblical and Confessional contents of What We Believe. We are not asking you to subscribe to the contents of every post and comment that will appear on this blog.

Who is included in your consent and subscription? Only you. Not your family. Not your congregation. Not your calling body. By subscribing you only represent yourself, as an individual member of the WELS, and in no way represent any other individual or group of individuals.

What do we require of you, to seal your subscription? Your name, title, city and state of residence, and an email address at which we can contact you in an effort to verify your identity. Only your name, title, city and state will be added to the public list of subscribers.

Are you an Intrepid Lutheran? Then join us, and stand with us, for true confessional Lutheran unity in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod.
