Grace was founded in 1940 for the purpose of having a Wisconsin Synod congregation on the north side of Manitowoc. The existing church was built in 1995.  An educational wing was added in 2002.  Grace shares the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the people in the Manitowoc area and around the world.
What We Believe
As a WELS church we are convinced that within our fellowship we do not compromise any doctrine of Scripture.  Wherever there are souls that cling alone to the righteousness won for them by the life, death and resurrection of the eternal Son of God, there will be believers.  Every time in worship we speak the Apostles' or Nicene Creed, we confess that we do believe in the Holy Christian Church.  We know that true believers gather around the gospel in Word and sacrament.  We believe that God desires believers to gather together with their fellow believers so that they may gain experience and insight from others.  We know that believers share the comfort and power of the gospel with others, to sing hymns together, confess their faith together and speak prayers together all this give encouragement to one another in the race of faith.  We are all parts of the body of Christ.  Jesus has shown us that we function best in Christ's body when we function together, gathered around the means of grace.

Grace's Mission Statement
Grace Ev. Lutheran Church is dedicated to the pure preaching and teaching of God's word.  Our faith rests on the truth that Jesus Christ, God's son, has fully paid for all sin by His suffering and death on the cross and that "whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."  (John 3:16)

We, the members of Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church, affirm our continuing mission to work at bringing all people to the knowledge of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  To gather in joyful worship of God, to be witnesses to the truth of God’s salvation among ourselves that we may encourage each other to grow in faith and to witness to the hope of eternal life that is within us to our community and to the world.
