The WELS
Mission
As men, women, and children, united in faith and worship by the Word of God, the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod exists to make disciples throughout the world for time and for eternity, using the Gospel in Word and Sacrament to win the lost for Christ and to nurture believers for lives of Christian service, all to the glory of God.
 
Objectives of the WELS:
• To uphold and testify to the truth of God as fully revealed in the inspired, inerrant, infallible Holy
      Scriptures and articulated in the Lutheran Confessions
• To seize every opportunity to reach the lost with the Gospel
• To promote in our congregations growth in faith through public worship and a lifelong study of the Word 
       of God
• To spur one another on to reflect Christ’s love in our lives and serve as members of His Body
• To recruit and train candidates qualified for public ministry so that the Word of God is proclaimed
       faithfully today and for future generations
