Who is First German?

Who is First German? 

Jesus asked his disciples, "Who do you say that I am?"  Everyone has to answer this question at some point in life. We are people, who gather around God's Word to share the good news about who Jesus truly is.  He is the Savior of all mankind and God promises eternal life to all who trust in him. We gather to carry out the work Jesus has given his people, and we recognize that we are strangers here and heaven is our home. Our name "First German" reflects our immigrant heritage, and it reminds us that we are pilgrims traveling to our eternal home. We offer Sunday services, Bible study groups for all ages, and we operate a 3K to Grade 8 Elementary School.   

We are a Christian church, which looks to Christ Jesus and his Word as the only source for life.

We are a Lutheran church, which believes, teaches, and confesses the historic Christian faith found in the

We are a WELS church, which is connected to fellow Christians around the globe through
