About Our Redeemer

Our Redeemer is a member of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod & an Associate Congregation of the Sheboygan Area Lutheran High School.

Founded in 1942 in Oscar Bahr's old Barn, Our Redeemer has gone through many changes while adhering to Grace Alone, Faith Alone & Scripture Alone. Today we are a welcoming church for the family and a place where you can grow in your faith with many other believers. Below are a few statements to what we practice. We invite you to join us for Worship, Sunday School & Bible Class or Online through Facebook Live. See our service times on the Home page.

We are a confessional Church

We preach, teach and confess Jesus Christ as the only Savior of mankind. Our one purpose is to bring Christ to all people and all people to Christ.

We are a Lutheran Church

We are a church that traces its origin through Martin Luther’s Reformation of 1517 and back to the Church of the Apostles, established by Jesus Christ Himself. We are part of an over 2.6 million member church called The Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, which has 6,100 congregations world-wide. Our church originates the world-wide radio broadcast, “The Lutheran Hour,” and the television program, “This is the Life.”

We are a Bible Church

We believe and teach that the entire Bible is the Word of God, given to human beings by the Holy Spirit. This Scripture is the only source of knowledge about God and His will for us.

We are a Gospel Church

Our preaching and teaching are Gospel-centered. We proclaim the Good News that God through His Son Jesus Christ has redeemed the entire world from the slavery of sin, death, and hell. We believe that Jesus Christ, true God and true man, suffered and died on earth as punishment for sin. He lived in perfect obedience to God. He was without sin. It is only because of Him, not because of anything we can do, that our perfect relationship with God is restored through the forgiveness of sin. We receive this forgiveness of our sins and eternal life completely and freely as God’s gift through faith in Jesus Christ.

We are a Teaching Church

Because God’s Word is so important, we emphasize Christian education and encourage participation in our Sunday school for children, youth and adults. Vacation Bible School is conducted in the summer. Adult information classes are scheduled for those who wish to inquire into the Lutheran faith. These sessions review the fundamentals of the Christian faith as confessed by Lutherans.

We are a Liturgical Church

In our worship services, a definite pattern of worship is used, which intends to move the worshiper through a progression of appropriate inspirational experience all related to a common theme. Worship for a Lutheran is a joyous, happy, high point of the week. We believe that an altar, cross, candles, vestments, banners and other symbols add life and dignity to church worship. Our worship works best when those present do not see themselves as spectators, but as participants.

We are a Sacramental Church

We administer the Sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper according to Christ’s institution and command. We believe that through these Sacraments God offers and seals the forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and salvation to all believers.
