Teaching You the Good News

“But even if we, or an angel from heaven, announce another gospel different from the one we have announced to you, let it be cursed.” (Galatians 1:8)

“All Scripture is inspired by God, and useful to teach, to reprove, to correct, to instruct in righteousness.” (2 Timothy 3:16)

We believe that we are saved only through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, not by any work of our own doing.

“Certainly the grace of God has saved you through faith, it was not born of you, but it is a gift of God, nor is it the result of works, so that no one boasts.” (Ephesians 2:8,9)

So You Can Teach Others

We believe that we are saved only by the grace of God, which is the unmerited love of God.

“Love consists in this: not in that we have loved God, but in that he loved us and sent his Son, so that, offering himself in sacrifice, our sins would be forgiven.” (1 John 4:10) (DHH)

In short, we believe that Christ’s love is our calling. We are Biblical Lutherans and affiliated with WELS. We confess, that is, we believe and affirm, that the Bible is powerful and that through it we know God and for that reason, our first goal is to encourage people to read and study the Bible for themselves.

Our Mission

We teach the good news of Jesus to people around the world. Learn on your own. Learn with an online instructor. We have lessons, videos and songs. We tell you God’s Word so you can tell others!

Our Beliefs

We believe that only the Bible should be used to define our doctrine. Traditions, our experiences and even human reasoning are all subject to the Word of God.
