Who We Are

A Very Brief History Lesson

Immanuel is a member church of the Lutheran Church -- Missouri Synod (LCMS).

The first congregational meeting was held in May 1901 under the name "The German Evangelical Lutheran Immanuel Church of Grand Forks, ND". Worship services were held in German, and the first building was erected and dedicated in 1902 at 606 South Third Street.

A great many pastors, ministers, lay-people, congregants, and visitors have come and gone over the years. Our current Senior Pastor is Rev. Craig Fenske, installed in May 2005. Our Associate Pastor is Rev. Daniel Voth, installed in February 2016.

What We Believe

About The Bible

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, meaning that it is God’s way of communicating with His people today. We look to the Bible as the final authority in all that we believe and practice.

The Bible’s two basic components are The Law and The Gospel. The Law’s main function is to show us our unrighteousness - our sin. However, it doesn't give us any power, energy or desire to keep it. It serves mainly as a mirror, reflecting back to us who we are and how we have failed to keep God's revealed will for us. The Law can only declare us guilty.

The Gospel’s main function is to show us what God did to save us from our sinful rebellion and disregard for God's Law. God saves us by calling us to faith in Jesus Christ, whose suffering, death and resurrection atoned (or covered) our sin and who has imputed (or credited) His perfect righteousness to us.

(Please read: Psalm 119:105, John 17:17, 2 Timothy 3:15-16, and John 5:39)

Grace Alone, Faith Alone, Scripture Alone

It is by grace alone that one is eternally saved by God. It is by faith alone in Jesus Christ that one has access to this grace of God and its promise of salvation. And finally, scripture alone is the basis for all our doctrine and practice.

(Please read: Romans 10:17, Ephesians 2:8-9, and John 3:14-18)

About God

There is only one true God, who exists in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God the Father created the world in six literal days and still cares for it today; God the Son (Jesus) lived as a human being, died and rose from the dead; God the Holy Spirit works God’s will in the world.

(Please read: Matthew 28:19-20, and 2 Corinthians 13:14)

About People And Sin

God created humankind holy and without sin. Adam and Eve, of their own free will, disobeyed God, fell into sin and so brought sin on the whole human race. Sin is in all people by nature, and all people are born unable and unwilling to conform to God’s holy will. The wages of sin is death.

(Please read: Genesis 3 and Romans 5:12-14)

Christ As Our Salvation

Because God loves all people He sent His one and only Son Jesus into the world. He lived a perfect life, took mankind’s place under God’s wrath and completely paid for the sins of mankind by dying on the cross. He came back to life again on the third day and rose again to give mankind the hope of everlasting life.

(Please read: Isaiah 53:3-12, 2 Corinthians 5:21, and Romans 5:18-21)

About Baptism

We believe that, through Jesus, God commands us to baptize others in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Baptism is a sacrament whereby water and the Word come together for the forgiveness of sins, rescues from death and the devil, and gives eternal salvation to all who believe this, as the words and promises of God declare.

(Please read: Acts 2:38, Titus 3:4-7)

About Holy Communion (Lord's Supper)

In the Lord’s Supper Christ offers communicants His true Body and Blood in, with, and under the bread and wine. All who receive this sacrament in true faith share in the forgiveness of sins produced by Christ.

(Please read: Matthew 26:26-29 and 1 Corinthians 10:16-21; 11:23-28)
