Immanuel Lutheran Church & Preschool of Powell, Wyoming is a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, a worldwide body of two and a half million members.
PLEASE JOIN US
Our pastor, Pastor Lee Wisroth, desires to minister to your spiritual needs, and aid you in exploring our congregation’s ministry and the Lutheran/Christian faith. For those not yet acquainted with the Biblical teachings of the Christian faith and the Missouri Synod’s position on them, we offer Adult Information Classes as a preparation for membership.
Please let the pastor know if you have any questions regarding membership or your potential role in our congregation’s mission and ministry. We are excited and enthusiastic about the potential for ministry that exists in our community and surrounding area, and the abundance of gifts and willingness to serve with which God has supplied our congregation. As we serve the Lord with gladness, we come together for Sunday morning worship and Sunday School, various Bible studies during the week, mid-week children's school, pre-school and a ladies group called Lutheran Women's Missionary League.
IMMANUEL WELCOMES YOU
The members of Immanuel Lutheran Church welcome you to our fellowship. We consider it a very special privilege to be able to share with you the riches of God’s Word and the love of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord.
If you are not presently affiliated with a Christian church body, or are seeking a new place for worship and spiritual growth, we cordially invite you to worship with us and consider making Immanuel your new church home.
As a congregation of God’s redeemed people, it is our goal to proclaim the Good News of Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” It is our prayer that though this proclamation others can be brought into a meaningful personal fellowship with Jesus Christ, and more fully discover and understand God’s loving purpose for their lives – both now and in eternity.
AS CHRISTIANS WE BELIEVE
THE BIBLE, both Old and New Testament, is in every part the inspired Word of God unalterable, inerrant, and complete, requiring no human interpretations and permitting no additions to its teachings. It is our only source and norm for our Doctrine.
GOD, is one divine essence, who has revealed Himself in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
MAN, originally created by God pure and Holy, in God’s image, fell from his original state, bringing the curse of sin upon the whole human race, and in his present state is entirely depraved and enslaved in sin.
THE LAW (of God) is summarized in the Ten Commandments, demands perfect obedience to it on the part of man. Such perfect obedience is impossible for man and thus the Law condemns man’s failure to live by it.
THE GOSPEL reveals how Jesus Christ, the Son of Mary (thus true man) and the Son of God (thus true God), perfectly fulfilled God’s Law in man’s place. By His suffering and death He paid the full penalty for our sins and guilt, and by His resurrection has been declared the all sufficient Divine Redeemer. All who penitently accept Christ as the one and only Savior in sincere faith are justified in the sight of God and made heirs of salvation.
FAITH in God and Jesus Christ is not a personal achievement or work of man, but is created in us by the working of the Holy Spirit, Who works through the “Means of Grace,” the Word and Sacraments.
HOLY BAPTISM, commanded by Christ Himself and to be administered to both young and old without exception, is a washing or regeneration, a spiritual rebirth, through which saving faith is created in man’s heart by the power of the Holy Spirit through the Gospel.
HOLY COMMUNION, in which every communicant receives the true Body and Blood of the Living Christ together with the bread and wine is received by the believing Christian for the strengthening of his faith and the growth in godliness.
THE CHURCH is the sum total of all who believe in the Triune God and who have faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
JUDGEMENT DAY will come at the end of time, when Christ will visibly return to judge the living and the dead, reviving into eternal glory all who firmly trust in Him, and pronouncing eternal doom upon all who refused to acknowledge Him as their Redeemer and Lord.
