Our Synod
Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod
Wisconsin
because it was founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1850. The synod is currently active in all 50 states and 20 world mission fields.
Evangelical
because it is dedicated to spreading the good news of salvation by grace alone through faith alone. (Evangelical comes from the Greek word for 'good news.')
Lutheran
because it reflects the freeing message rediscovered by Martin Luther in the reformation of the Christian church in the 1500s.
Synod
because this Greek word means 'walking together' and WELS is a fellowship of over 1200 congreations working together to train pastors, build home and world missions, and guard the pure teachings of God's Word.
