Taking Jesus at His word;
Receiving Jesus in His sacraments.
Thank you for visiting the website of Gethsemane Lutheran Church of Davenport, Iowa. We weekly are gathered around the good words and gifts of our Lord Jesus Christ, our Savior who died and rose to atone for our sin and give us life. We invite you to receive these gifts with us. Gethsemane is an evangelical, confessional, liturgical Lutheran Church. Gethsemane is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod and in communion with the Confessional Evangelical Lutheran Conference.. The Lord’s richest blessings in Christ!
Jesus serves us with His Word and Sacraments every Sunday at 8 am.
Our chief Divine Service currently gathers Sunday at 8 am. Our sister congregation in Moline Saint Paul's Lutheran Church gathers for Divine Service at 10:30 am. All are most welcome at either service; we ask those in interested in the Lord's Supper to speak with our pastor before approaching the altar. You may also join us for Vespers, Wednesdays at 7:15 pm.
The Word of the Lord remains forever and it is for you.
We believe that Scripture is a unified whole, true and without error in everything it says, for the Savior said, “The Scripture cannot be broken” (John 10:35). It is the way we know what we know; Christ is the One who knows us and we know Him through His Word, the Scriptures. These Holy Scriptures creates life and salvation. We are committed to confessing, teaching, and believing this inspired and inerrant Word of God because this is what He has called us to do.
