Good Shepherd was formed in 2008 by a group of people who were concerned about providing a conservative Lutheran church in the Brainerd Lakes area that would be committed to the inerrancy of Scripture and would emphasize a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Our current building was constructed in 2012, with an addition that was completed in 2020.
We are unashamedly a conservative, Bible-believing, Christ-preaching, Free Lutheran church.
We are committed to helping people know Christ as their Savior, grow in their relationship with Christ, and be involved in sharing Christ other people both locally and globally.
Our Pastor, the Church Council (Deacons and Trustees), and various ministry leaders and committees work together to help us carry out our mission to the best of our ability.
We are a member of the Association of Free Lutheran Congregations (AFLC), which is headquartered in Plymouth, MN. The AFLC is a conservative Lutheran denomination that honors the Word of God, values our Lutheran distinctives, and recognizes the freedom of the local congregation to direct its own affairs.
