What We Believe

Holy Cross Lutheran Church was founded by a small group of families in 1926 and now has about 750 members. Holy Cross has grown in size but our core beliefs remain the same.

Holy Cross Lutheran Church is first and foremost a Biblical church. We believe the Bible is the true Word of God that reveals Jesus’ love and His plan to save all people.

Holy Cross is a Christian church. We gather together to worship the Triune God – God the Father, God the Son Jesus and God the Holy Spirit. We join with other members to be strengthened by the teachings of the Bible and to reach out to those around us in Christian love.

Holy Cross is a Lutheran church. We proclaim forgiveness and salvation for all people through the perfect life and death of Jesus.

Holy Cross is a congregation of the ELS (Evangelical Lutheran Synod) in fellowship with the WELS (Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod). For a more detailed look at our beliefs, please explore "We Believe, Teach and Confess."
