About Us

Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church has been reaching out with the good news of salvation to the Oak Lawn community since 1939. Many of our members still live in the neighborhood around the church, but others live in many of the other southwest suburbs of Chicago.

We believe that the Bible is God's Word and that it has been correctly interpreted by the historic creeds and confessions of the church. Accordingly, we believe that...

  • The Triune God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - created everything that exists, including humankind.
  • We have rebelled against God and have become separated from Him. Because of this sin, we are unable to please God.
  • God became man in the person of Jesus Christ and took all our sin upon Himself. Jesus died and rose again as our Savior. He will come again to judge all people.
  • Salvation is given to us freely as a gift. God chooses to give His gifts in specific ways through His means of grace. These include Holy Baptism, Holy Absolution and the Lord's Supper.
  • Through the working of the Holy Spirit in these means of grace, we are made holy and live godly lives according to Godís Word.

Faith is a member of The Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod. We join with 2.5 million other Lutheran Christians across the country and members of the International Lutheran Council throughout the world to support the proclamation of the gospel.
