About this site

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 us and teach us through His Word from preaching, teaching, through 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. Sometimes we do this through hymns of the church, sometimes through liturgy, sometimes through contemporary music written in recent years. 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. Most important we feel is to pray for our missionaries.

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 to give him glory. Join us in this wonderful privilege!

Word of Life is located on the south edge of Mankato on Stoltzman Road just past the former Applewood Restaurant.
