Our beliefs are drawn from the Bible. 

We confess the three creeds of the Christian church (Apostles', Nicene and Athanasian).

We hold to the Lutheran Confessions in the Book of Concord because these writings explain the teachings of the Bible. Included in the Book of Concord are: Luther's Small and Large Catechisms, the Augsburg Confession and the Apology to the Augsburg Confession, the Smalcald Articles, and the Formula of Concord. A brief summary of each confession is found HERE.

Lincoln Heights Lutheran Church is part of the WELS,

the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod



For a summary of what we believe and teach about many topics from creation to the Bible to the return of Jesus see the WELS website - What We Believe.

We are a confessional Lutheran church on the south side of Des Moines. Our mission is to nurture each other in God's Word and spread the Good News of Christ to all.
