I believe in good, strong, confessional Lutheranism. For many years that was so within the LCMS, where I was raised. Now I see many departures of the Synod from that. I hear of many LCMS churches requiring the ten percent tithe of its members now. I feel that has to do with this so-called Jesus First movement. Also many other things as open communion and fellowship with non-Lutheran denominations. So I had to go to the WELS, where pure confessionalism and true teaching remain.

I'm still reading your papers. Are any of the Pastors listed related? What seminary would you recomend we get our pastors from?

One of those operated by the Missouri Synod. The confession of the individual is more important than which school he attended. Both schools have produced good pastors, and both schools have produced men who have injured the church

Interesting site. Enjoyable. I've only been a Lutheran since 1997 and the conflict between the confessionals and church growth types has really caused me to think about some things. Is the confessional Lutheran church growing? Or is it a fringe movement? I will continue to visit this site. Thanks!

Is the Confessional Lutheran church growing? Yes. Is it in the majority? Probably not. Faithfulness is always more difficult and more rare than compromise and following the latest fads. The truth, however, is that only the Word of God, clearly and purely preached, causes genuine "Church growth", so those who try to accomplish it by other means or principles are only growing the number of those seated in the pews -- if that.

It is very important that we, as Lutherans, remain faithful to the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions. We live in a day where we are being pressured to go in a "church growth" direction. We, in the LCMS, have re-elected,in my opinion, a "church growth" president in Gerald Kieschnick. I mean no disrespect to our synodical president, but I would prefer a confessional leader such as the late Dr Barry!

Amen to that!

May the congregation sing the hymns in four-part harmony, rather than just the melody. Many men can't sing the d,e, and f above middle c whre many melodies go? Should not all worshipers be permitted to "sing a joyful noise....?" Yet current practice disallows this to many. Thanks for a reply.

To my knowledge there is nothing about current practice that prohibits the snging of four parts by the congregation. Local practice at this congregation or that may make it difficult, but that is within the freedom of a congregation. As to the question, YES, all worshipers should "make a joyful noise." Such a noise does not automatically mean four part harmony, but it can where the singers are capable. This discussion does belong on the list where it was begun - and of which you are a member, however.

Seeking confessional cong. in NW subs. Have found none left so far. Fill the pews and let the "Almighty dollar" rule. It doesn't matter what is taught. Sermons begin with items taken from Newsweek or other periodicals. What kind of Pastoral preparation is that? Music replaces real hymns. After this last Convention, it seems we have our own brand of "College of Bishops", similar to Catholicism. We have alot to fight for, but not much left to fight with. Leave or stay and fight are the only options for Conservatives. God bless us all.

I am a USAR Chaplain and made a copy of Rev Bible Study by Pastor Bartz to some soldiers (non-Luth) after having a great coversation with them. They will be in downtown Iraq and because the Bible study is "All About Jesus" as Dan Preus would say, I'm praying they will be comforted with the truth of His love for them.

I agree with the comments that Mark Middendorf made in his recent addition to your site. I left the LCMS and joined the WELS because I don't like the direction that the synod has taken. When you ask "Why has all the doctrine changed?"' of a pastor all you get is "times change" WHY?? How difficult is it to tell someone that the LCMS wants to be more like the ELCA? That's the direction it's going. I'm a democrat and liberal at that, but HONESTY is the reason I joined the WELS.. They still confess the truth in the Lutheran Confession.

It's time to put side our petty difference's and become one united Lutheran Church.

If you consider doctrinal differences to be "petty", if the ELCA formal abandonment of Lutheranism by fellowship agreements and by the signing of the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification with the Roman church is merely "petty" in your eyes, if the abdication of Biblical authority and truth is "petty", then you might have a point.

I, however, along with many others, count God and His Word more important than an empty show of "Lutheran" unity.

God Bless you for your courage to stand for the truth! I am so thankful God has led me to your site. I was raised very conservative Baptist, then drifted into non-denominationalism and contemporary worship. After several years of prayerful searching, God led me to my home church about 8 years ago. Now I am concerned with what appears to be a movement within the LCMS toward popular teachings of non-denominationalism, which is what God led me away from. Thank you for continuing to teach the truth.

I need help. I'm a lifelong Missouri Synod Lutheran and desperately in search of like-minded Christians. Years ago, I embraced evangelical Christianity but stayed in the MO Synod. Then, I embraced evangelical-style "contemporary" worship in a Lutheran setting. I'm now a recovering evangelical, deeply searching for liturgical renewal in my church body. I have become disenchanted with both the evangelical model of contemporary worship in the church but am not interested in the staid, lifeless, non-mission feel of ultra-conservative churches where the use of high-church liturgy seems to remain. Are there Lutherans out there who want to see a return to rich, beautiful, even high-chuch liturgy but also wante to retain a sense of community, welcome, and outreach found in our growing churches today (most of whom are watering down or eliminating liturgy? Please write me. Blessings,

How can this be a Lutheran church? I am a new member of LCMS. I need this site because it will provide information on what the difference is between being a Lutheran and being a Confessional Lutheran. I thought the book of Concord was written for all Lutherans.

Your website is interesting and informative and provides a forum for confessional or orthodox lutherans. Several years ago I heard a discussion over a PBS station regarding the future of christianity in the western world. A participant in the dialog was a professor of church history at a british university. I cant quote his statements verbatim but the gist was - only two catholic churches will survive in the future; one is The Church of Rome the other is orthodox Lutheran. All others will disappear or join either of these two. Our service is to hold to our confessions and preach the Word and administer the sacrements according to the Lutheran Confessions.

I have been reluctant to associate much with confessionals, because of the shrill and hate-filled messages from a few members of the movement. At this site, I find, for the most part, CALM and reasoned arguments. I appreciate that very much, and will be coming back. Thanks!

I was very excited when I pulled up this site. Tell me, do you have a "master copy" of the churches that are confessional? If not, or even if so, do you know of a solid confessional church in or near Birmingham, AL. I do not mind driving up to about 60 miles. I have been living in Birmingham for about 8 years but attend a WELS church because I have not been happy with the churches in my area that I have visited. Thank you and God Bless.

I was thinking of going to a MSLC until the 9/11 and could not fathom Christians not seeing the benifit of not praying even if some small part of our theology may be different. Luther said that even the "anti-baptist" can not see the whole truth we are to pray for them. I believe that he would say that all who truely believe can pray for the good of God will and the Love of Christ. I like your sight and will visit often. Pray for the peace that Jesus has given His own.

I was just recently accepted into the LCMS Ministerium through colloquy. My background is WELS but my emphasis on "Catholic" liturgy and sacramental theology got me into trouble. I'm hoping that an LCMS congregation who wants to hear the truth and cares about the historic Lutheran liturgy and the Confessions may find it possibel to call me.
