Who Are We?


Grace Lutheran Church of Durand, Michigan, is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). Along with our synod we walk together in a common confession of faith as we worship the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Our united concern is the welfare and salvation of the souls of all people. Therefore we are united in bringing the Good News of Jesus' suffering, death and resurrection to the world. Our congregations are located in all fifty states and in many foreign countries. Together with our synod, we believe that the Bible is the totally inspired Word of God, and that it is without error. The Bible is our only authority for faith and life.

What Do We Believe?

By the Good News of Jesus, proclaimed in the Bible, people are brought to faith in Jesus for the forgiveness of sins and for eternal life in heaven.
