We were pleased to have five representatives of our congregation present at the first meeting of the United Lutheran Mission Association (aka ULMA) in 2005. This is an exciting new venture by our congregation along with two congregations in central Illinois; Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Decatur and Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Forsyth. Basically, it's a mission association dedicated to starting Lutheran congregations in the tradition of "Old Missouri". As of 2013, two missions are already underway.

Our congregation has been serving the Lord
since our founding in 1921. The Lutheran Reformation began in 1517 with the posting of
Dr. Martin Luther's Ninety-Five Theses
on the church door in Wittenberg. Our faith is
founded on the Holy Scriptures and the three creeds of the
We are a Christian Church whose teachings are based in the Old & New Testaments of the
Holy Bible. The exposition of our understanding of the Holy Scriptures can be found
in the Book of Concord (1580),
also known as the Lutheran Confessions. One of the Confessions is Luther's Small Catechism.
It is a very straightforward exposition on Christian teaching, written for parents
to use in teaching their children. It is also highly recommended for adults.
Our congregation voted to leave the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod and become an independent Lutheran congregation on September 13, 2004. This action was taken due to changes in the procedural methods (polity) of the Synod in its dealing with member congregations as specified in their Church Constitutions. We did not leave due to Synod's "official" doctrinal positions. More information may be found on our What We Believe page.
In 1932, the Lutheran Church—Missouri
Synod issued a Brief
Statement to convey in a convenient form the beliefs of the Church. (This link
includes numerous statements on doctrine besides the Brief Statement.) Redeemer is in full agreement with the Brief Statement.
