We are a congregation of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. Gloria Dei Lutheran Church

was founded by the merging of Grace Lutheran Church and Christ Lutheran Church in  1960.

Gloria Dei Lutheran Church accepts the Scriptures as the inspired and inerrant Word of God,

and subscribes unconditionally to all the symbolical books of the Evangelical Lutheran Church

as a true and unadulterated statement and exposition of the Word of God.

We accept the Lutheran Confessions as articulated in the Book of Concord of 1580

because they are drawn from the Word of God,

and on that account we regard their doctrinal content as a true and binding exposition of Holy Scripture.

We are hear to serve the people of Pequot Lakes and the surrounding area with the love of Christ

through the means of grace in His Word, and the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion.


We believe in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

Who makes Himself known to us in the written Word of the Bible. (II Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe that the chief message of the Bible is that God came to earth 

in the person of Jesus Christ, true God and true man,

Who through a sinless life and a holy death on the cross

paid our debt of sin so that we live with God today and forever in heaven. (II Corinthians 5:1-4,20-21)

We believe our Lord is present with His people

through His Word and the Sacraments,

working in our hearts to respond to His love for us

by serving Him and our neighbors. (Ephesians 2:8-10)

We want you to know this, to receive this as true

and to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ so that you too

can live with God today and forever in heaven. (John 11:25-26)
