Who We Are

Mt. Olive Lutheran Church is a member of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), and has been serving the community of greater Iron Mountain/Kingsford since the 1920s.
We believe and teach that faith in Jesus Christ as Savior is the one and only way to heaven--as the Apostle Paul says, "not by works, so that no one can boast." Salvation by God's grace alone through faith in Jesus is the heart and core of our faith.
Along with that, we believe and teach that the Bible is the only source of absolute truth, and that everything written in it is the error-free word of God, recorded by the hands of humans, but completely inspired word for word by the Holy Spirit. Because of this, the Bible is the source of all our doctrine and teaching.

Our Services

What are services like?
Our services would be classified as 'traditional' by a lot of people's standards, but by no means should you equate that with boring! We see great value in the forms of the liturgy that believers have preserved for centuries, as well as great hymns that proclaim the truths of Scripture. But we certainly look to inject newer hymns and more contemporary-sounding worship songs at times into our services, that also proclaim the truths of Scripture in a beautiful way and which help to keep things fresh. Our services are meant to focus us on the the message of the gospel in word and sacrament, and the goal of the sermon is always: 1) to show us our sinfulness and need for a Savior, 2) to focus us on and remind us of the phenomenal love that Christ demonstrated for us as he paid for our sins on the cross to win our forgiveness and salvation, and 3) to help us think about how to apply God's word to our daily lives, that we may live for him and give him glory!

What is the community like?
Our community is a mixture of generations. Iron Mountain and Kingsford are good, American blue-collar types of towns, with friendly people and a welcoming atmosphere. There is also tons of natural beauty all around us, and if you're a fan of the outdoors, you would be quite happy in this area! Overall, our community could be classified as family-friendly, peaceful, and down to earth.

What if I'm not a Christian?
If you're not a Christian, that gives us even more cause to welcome you in with open arms! We'd very much like to teach you about our Christian faith, and specifically, what Jesus Christ has done to rescue us from sin and hell!
