Located in Mankato, MN, Word of Life is a small but very enthusiastic and warm church of the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (AFLC). We are not a synod but an association meaning that each congregation is autonomous.
Our focus is first on the Word of God - the Bible. We believe that these are God's inspired words and therefore the Scripture is inerrant and will never fail us. We depend on God to feed and teach us through His Word through preaching, teaching, small group and private Bible study.
Second, we focus on the worship of the risen Lord Jesus Christ. He is the central person in all of history. His death on the cross and resurrection opened the door so that we can have access to God and can worship Him. Therefore, much of our time together is focussed on the worship of our precious Lord. We do this through hymns of the church, liturgy, contemporary music written in recent years, prayer, and testimonies of God's mighty deeds. All are means of glorifying Jesus.
Third, we are missions minded. We support several missionaries in foreign fields and have even ventured on a short-term mission trip to Poland in recent years. Supporting missionaries through prayer is vital.
Finally, prayer is at the foundation of all we do. We believe God is at work in powerful ways through the prayers of his people. Our focus is not only on praying for one another, but also for our neighborhood, city and country.
We are a place where you will be warmly welcomed. More than anything, we want you and others to meet the Lord, to learn at his feet and give him glory. Join us in this wonderful privilege!
Word of Life is located on the south edge of Mankato on Stoltzman Road on the intersection of 200th street (3 miles south of Stadium Road).
