Who We Are

  Who We Are  


Christ Alone Evangelical Lutheran Church was formed in 2017 by the consolidation of Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church of south Mequon and Calvary Evangelical Lutheran Church of Thiensville. The two congregations saw an opportunity to do outreach more effectively, and after several years of studies, voted to consolidate. Both churches have long histories in serving the Mequon/Thiensville area.

Trinity was established in 1853 on Green Bay Road in south Mequon, eight years before the Civil War. For the past 165 years, it has been dedicated to proclaiming God’s word.

Calvary was established in 1931 because people saw a need for English services. A school was added next to the church in the early 1960s at 110 Division Street, Thiensville.

Christ Alone exists to serve our neighbors with the life-giving and life-changing message of Scripture: God gave his one and only Son to die for our sins, so that we might have new life at peace with Him! Through our regular weekly worship services, our many Bible classes, our fellowship opportunities, our Lutheran elementary school, our support of area Lutheran high schools - through all we do as a Christian congregation - we seek to grow in that message and share it with all who will hear.

We believe that by our own words and actions, each of us has fallen short of the perfection that God demands and we deserve his condemnation. But God in his love sent his own Son, Jesus Christ, into this world to be the savior of all people, that through his suffering, death and resurrection he might pay for the sins of all people. God gives this forgiveness of sins and eternal life to us through faith in his Word.

Our church stands united in faith and practice with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). For a more complete statement of our beliefs, go to “This We Believe”.
