When the Son of man shall come in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the throne of His glory.
We are a confessional, liturgical, biblical congregation in the Iowa Great Lakes Region committed to proclaiming the forgiving presence of Jesus Christ.
Who We Are
Christ the King Lutheran Church is a congregation of God’s people, gathered by the Holy Spirit to Jesus Christ around His saving Word and life-giving Sacraments. At the center of our life together is the Divine Service of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world. By His life, suffering, death and resurrection, we are given forgiveness and are born again in His name. Through faithful careful and teaching, we minister to sinners that they may experience the fullness of new life in Christ and His Church.
We hold to the Bible, which is the infallible Word of God, inspired by the Triune God, without error. We believe that the Scriptures are correctly explained in the Small Catechism of Martin Luther, the Unaltered Augsburg Confession (1531), and the entire Book of Concord (1580).
In today's society, the Church has been forgotten or removed out of many people's lives. What results for man is a life which becomes weary of always trying to prove and make himself worthy before God, which leads only to being crushed by the Law and God's wrath. We encourage everyone to to take time out of their busy schedules, hectic lives, and daily grind and find true rest in Jesus Christ as He is found in His Church. God has chosen His Church as the place where He delivers His gifts of life and salvation. Only in His Church will you find true rest for your soul and true forgiveness for your sin and guilt.
Whether you have never been to Church, fallen away from the faith, or are tired of water-down Christianity, we welcome you to join us at Christ the King to experience the love of God, the forgiveness of sins, and life eternal.
May the Holy Spirit work in your life as He calls you into His Kingdom.
