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!

Questions & Answers

  • What is the difference between a Synod and a Ministerium? What is meant by Unionism? Answer:  A ministerium is a group of ministers united for a common cause.  They only—and not their congregations—would belong to the ministerium.A synod describes congregations, with its called workers and laity, joined together and committed to a common calling.Unionism refers to joint worship and religious work of people who are not united in doctrine.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. 

  • In order for my salvation to be sure and complete, I know that God himself had to die. A man alone dying would not save me. I thought that I had been taught that since Christ's human nature shares with his divine, and his divine nature with his human, that both natures of Christ died on the cross. Recently I was corrected by another WELS member telling me that only the human nature actually died, because "God cannot die." Would you please help clarify. Which Bible verses speak to this? Thank you for your help. Answer:  You are correct in noting that, in order for our salvation to be “sure and complete,” Jesus had to be more than a man when he offered his life on the cross.  Scripture says “No man can redeem the life of another or give to God a ransom for him—the ransom for a life is costly, no payment is ever enough” (Psalm 49:7-8).  Jesus is the God-Man.  The angel Gabriel informed Mary that the child she would give birth to would be called “The Son of the Most High” (Luke 1:32)  and “the Son of God” (Luke 1:35).  God and man in one person is a “mystery” (1 Timothy 3:16) to us, but we cling to that mystery in Spirit-worked faith.You also understand correctly that there is a union of the two natures in Christ, and so it is accurate to speak of God dying on the cross.  In fact, church history is replete with individuals who denied that and whose errors led the Christian church to formulate responses from Scripture.In Acts 20:28 the apostle Paul instructed the elders of the church in Ephesus to “Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.”  It was not the shed blood of a mere man that ransomed people, it was God’s “own blood.”  Similarly, in 1 John 1:7 the inspired writer comforts us with the message that “the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”  Again, it is not the blood of a mere man that cleanses us from all sin, but the blood of God’s Son.Just an aside—it is Scripture alone that is the foundation of our faith, but it is interesting to see how our hymns reflect the truths of our faith.  In that regard, take a look at some of the hymns in the Lent and Good Friday section of Christian Worship.  Several hymns illustrate the truth of Scripture that God died in our behalf, to win our salvation.  The refrain of one such hymn points us to a God-pleasing response:  “Thousand, thousand thanks shall be, Dearest Jesus, unto thee.”  (Christian Worship 114)(If you are interested in reading a short paper on the subject of your question, follow this link.  There is some technical language in the paper, but the overall content is clear.)Answered by James Pope, professor at Martin Luther College, New Ulm, Minn.
