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!

  • Acts 26:19-32 (NIV84) 19"So then, King Agrippa, I was not disobedient to the vision from heaven. 20First to those in Damascus, then to those in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and to the Gentiles also, I preached that they should repent and turn to God and prove their repentance by their deeds. 21That is why the Jews seized me in the temple courts and tried to kill me. 22But I have had God's help to this very day, and so I stand here and testify to small and great alike. I am saying nothing beyond what the prophets and Moses said would happen— 23that the Christ[a]would suffer and, as the first to rise from the dead, would proclaim light to his own people and to the Gentiles." 24At this point Festus interrupted Paul's defense. "You are out of your mind, Paul!" he shouted. "Your great learning is driving you insane." 25"I am not insane, most excellent Festus," Paul replied. "What I am saying is true and reasonable. 26The king is familiar with these things, and I can speak freely to him. I am convinced that none of this has escaped his notice, because it was not done in a corner. 27King Agrippa, do you believe the prophets? I know you do." 28Then Agrippa said to Paul, "Do you think that in such a short time you can persuade me to be a Christian?" 29Paul replied, "Short time or long—I pray God that not only you but all who are listening to me today may become what I am, except for these chains." 30The king rose, and with him the governor and Bernice and those sitting with them. 31They left the room, and while talking with one another, they said, "This man is not doing anything that deserves death or imprisonment." 32Agrippa said to Festus, "This man could have been set free if he had not appealed to Caesar."Footnotes:Acts 26:23 Or MessiahScripture taken from the HOLY BIBLE, NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION®.

  • When my wife and I are invited for dinner at one of our friends who happens to be Catholic, our host will pray a simple, generic table prayer before eating. How do we, as WELS Lutherans, handle this? Answer:  If your friends hold to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, there is a great difference between their faith and your faith.  As joint prayer is an expression of Christian unity, you would refrain from joining in prayer with them.  As it is, your question tells me that your host simply prays a prayer and does not look for others to join in.  While that might be an uncomfortable situation for you and your wife, you are not in the wrong by being there while that prayer is being prayed.  You can be respectfully quiet when your host prays. There is much information on the Seminary’s online essay file on the topic of praying with others.  If you are interested in pursuing this subject, you can follow this link. You might also be interested in reading more about the Roman Catholic Church.  A recent book from Northwestern Publishing House is A Lutheran Looks at Catholics.  You can find the hard copy and eBook version via this link.  These materials will provide help in witnessing about our faith.  God bless your efforts. 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.

  • Where does it say in Scripture that Baptism creates faith? Answer:  We will not find a passage in the Bible that states specifically and succinctly:  “Baptism creates faith.”  We know that baptism is a faith-working act on God’s part by looking at several Bible passages and seeing how they relate to baptism.The Bible explains that people enjoy the forgiveness of sins and eternal life by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ his Son (Ephesians 2:8; Romans 3:28).  The Bible states that baptism gives people those very blessings of life and forgiveness (Acts 2:38; 22:16; Ephesians 5:26; Titus 3:5-7; 1 Peter 3:21).  Baptism gives those blessings because of the powerful word of God that is attached to the water.Since the Bible teaches that we enjoy salvation only through faith in Christ, and since the Bible teaches that baptism saves us and washes away our sins, we can rightfully say that baptism creates the faith that connects us to Jesus and brings into our lives all the blessings he won by his holy life, sacrificial death and glorious resurrection.We have every reason to grow in our appreciation for baptism by which we are clothed in Jesus’ robe of righteousness (Galatians 3:27).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.
