Learn about Grace... God's grace here in Muskegon...News!

Welcome!

Whether you are new to the area, just passing through or in need of a new church home... we welcome you to join us each Sunday at 9:00 am.

We are located in Fruitport Township, just minutes from the Lakes Mall area. Click here to contact us.

Bible Based

We believe that the Bible is fully sufficient, clearly teaching people all they need to know to get to heaven. It makes them “wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus” (2 Timothy 3:15), and it equips them for “every good work” (2 Timothy 3:17).

Our Family

We pray you feel a part of our church family from your very first visit!

Our family consists of a growing representation of our area - from young and established familes to single and retired members.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

  • Listen as Pastor David Witte reads from 1 Corinthians 1:1-17. 20081128db.mp3 Length:  3 minutes, 24 seconds Narrator:  Pastor David Witte

  • 1 Corinthians 1:1-17 (NIV84)1 Corinthians 1 1Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes, 2To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours: 3Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.Thanksgiving 4I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. 5For in him you have been enriched in every way—in all your speaking and in all your knowledge— 6because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you. 7Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. 8He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.Divisions in the Church 10I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought. 11My brothers, some from Chloe's household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. 12What I mean is this: One of you says, "I follow Paul"; another, "I follow Apollos"; another, "I follow Cephas[a]"; still another, "I follow Christ." 13Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized into[b] the name of Paul? 14I am thankful that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15so no one can say that you were baptized into my name. 16(Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don't remember if I baptized anyone else.) 17For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.Footnotes:1 Corinthians 1:12 That is, Peter1 Corinthians 1:13 Or in; also in verse 15Scripture taken from the HOLY BIBLE, NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION®.

Questions & Answers

  • How many WELS churches in the United States are still using the (1941) Lutheran Hymnal vs. the Christian Worship hymnal? And why would they continue to use it even when it seems the rest of the synod has switched over to Christian Worship? They have all the new handouts from the synod, yet the service is from 1940s. Please explain. Thanks for your time and knowledge. Answer:  The most common estimates are that 95% of WELS congregations are using Christian Worship:  A Lutheran Hymnal.  That translates into roughly 1,208 of our synod’s 1,272 congregations using the hymnal.  That is a pretty remarkable number.  Why aren’t 100% of our congregations using the hymnal?  The short answer is “Christian freedom.”  While “synod” means “walking together,” “synod” does not mean compelling people or congregations to walk together as one in an area where there no divine command to do so.  A hymnal is one such area.  Congregations are free to make these kinds of decisions on their own.  Certainly, there are many advantages when congregations use the same hymnal, but each congregation makes that decision.  Those congregations that are not utilizing Christian Worship may be doing so based on the demographics of their congregation, the culture of the congregation, or any number of other reasons. As a synod, we do walk together in recognizing that hymnals assist us to “Sing to the glory of his name; offer him glory and praise!”  (Psalm 66:2)Answered by James Pope, professor at Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minn. Pope is a contributing editor to Forward in Christ magazine. He writes the monthly “Light for our path” question and answer column.

  • Hello! Are the Prophets now Saints? In advance, thank you! Answer:  Yes – and the prophets, like all followers of the promised Savior Jesus Christ, were saints while they lived on earth.  People who are joined together in faith with the Savior enjoy forgiveness for all their sins and are holy in the sight of God (1 Corinthians 6:11; 1 Peter 2:9).  In the beginning of his inspired letters the apostle Paul regularly reminded his readers that they were saints because of God’s working in their hearts (Romans 1:7; 1 Corinthians 1:2; 2 Corinthians 1:1; Ephesians 1:1; Philippians 1:1; Colossians 1:2).  Speaking the Apostles’ Creed is a regular reminder that we Christians are saints (“the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints”).  Saints Triumphant Sunday on the church calendar provides a special opportunity to thank God for fulfilling all his promises of eternal life to his children who died in the faith.  We Christians who live on earth have the assurance that we are saints in God’s eyes, and we confidently await the time when we too will be in his presence to praise him forevermore (Revelation 7).Answered by James Pope, professor at Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minn. Pope is a contributing editor to Forward in Christ magazine. He writes the monthly “Light for our path” question and answer column.
