Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the Liberty Bible Church website.  We are an independent bible church whose purpose is to help individuals discover meaning and purpose in life through a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. 

We have ministered in the community of Wisconsin Rapids since 1978.  The focus of our ministry is to fully reveal God and His will for man, through the systematic teaching of the Bible.

We invite you to join us as we gather together each week for worship, open prayer, and in-depth Bible teaching.

Leon Wolf
Pastor at Liberty Bible Church


The Scriptures reveal that the Church exists to glorify God through fulfilling 5 primary purposes.


     ▪ John 4:23 - "Who worship in spirit and truth"

     ▪ Romans 12:1 - "I urge you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and    
      holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship."


     ▪ Acts 1:8 - "you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit shall come upon you; and you shall be My witness
      both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth."

     ▪ Acts 26:18 - "to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light."


     ▪ Ephesians 4:13 - "He gave some as apostles and some as prophets and some as evangelists, and some
      as pastor/teachers for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry."


     ▪ Matthew 28:19 - "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the
      Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you."


     ▪ Romans 12:1 - "I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and
      holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship."


Becoming a Christian

Scripture is everywhere clear—the one thing a person must do to be saved is exercise “true saving faith” in Christ.  Faith is the instrument that God uses to bring individuals into a saving relationship with Himself.  That is not to say that faith is the basis of our salvation; rather, it is the channel by which God grants salvation.  Noted theologian B.B. Warfield said, “The saving power of faith resides thus not in itself, but in the Almighty Savior on whom it rests…It is not, strictly speaking, even faith in Christ that saves, but that Christ saves through faith.”

Faith comes to the believer as a gift from God.  It is not something that individuals are capable of mustering up on their own.  Were faith a work of man’s own doing, man would be in a position to take partial credit for his redemption.  But such a concept is foreign to the writers of Scripture.  Paul anticipated that men would tend to boast of their part in salvation when he wrote that faith (one of many components of salvation) “is the gift of God…that no one should boast”  (Ephesians 2:8-9).  As Charles Haddon Spurgeon was fond of saying, salvation is “all of grace.”


Faith comes as a result of the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit—He quickens our hearts to believe.  Apart from the new birth, there can be no true faith.  Therefore, faith though it manifests itself in action, comes as a result of God’s work in us.  God grants us faith and that faith is evidenced by our walking in the good works that “God [has] prepared beforehand” for us to walk in (Ephesians 2:10). 

The Bible says that if we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ we shall be saved.  However, the Bible does not present faith as simply “mental assent to the facts of the gospel.”  True saving faith involves repentance from one’s sin and a complete trust in the work of Christ to save from sin and make one righteous.  The Reformers spoke of three aspects of faith: recognition of the truth claims of the gospel, acknowledgement of their truthfulness and exact correspondence to man’s spiritual need, and a personal commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ who, by virtue of His death, provides the only sufficient sacrifice for one’s personal sin.  Any one of these three aspects of faith, taken by themselves, is insufficient to meet the biblical definition of saving faith.  However, the presence of all three components together results in saving faith.  In other words, saving faith consists of mental, emotional, and volitional elements.  Saving faith involves both the mind and the will.

In addition to calling us to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, the New Testament uses several figures of speech to describe the nature of saving faith.  Perhaps the most vivid of those figurative references is found in Jesus’ words from the Sermon on the Mount: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied” (Matthew 5:6).  In that passage, Jesus likens true faith to hungering and thirsting.  The unbeliever, by virtue of the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit, recognizes his or her dire need of nourishment and refreshment and comes to Jesus begging that He fill the need.  That is a beautiful picture of faith.  First, there is recognition of Jesus’ claim to the “bread of life” (John 6:35) and the possessor of “living water” (John 4:10).  Next, the unbeliever is convinced that Jesus’ promise is really true and that it corresponds exactly with his profound hunger and thirst.  Finally, the unbeliever acts—he begs Jesus to satisfy his hunger and quench his thirst.  True faith hears, believes, and actively responds.


What We Teach

1.    We teach that the Bible is the Word of God, supernaturally inspired; that is inerrant in the original manuscripts and is the divinely authoritative standard for every age and every life.

2.    We teach that the Godhead exists eternally in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—and that these three are one God.

3.    We teach that God is absolute and sole creator of the universe and that creation was by divine decree, not through evolutionary process.

4.    We teach that God, by His sovereign choice and out of love for men, sent Christ into the world to save sinners.

5.    We teach that Jesus Christ in the flesh was both God and man; that He was born of a virgin and that He lived a sinless life, in which He taught and wrought mighty works, wonders and signs exactly as revealed in the four Gospels; that He was crucified, died as a penalty for our sins, and was raised from the dead bodily on the third day.  Later He ascended to the Father’s right hand where He is head of the church and intercedes for believers, and from whence He is coming again personally, bodily and visibly to this earth to set up His millennial kingdom.

6.    We teach that since in His death, by His shed blood, the Lord Jesus Christ made a perfect atonement for sin, redeeming us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, men are saved and justified on the simple and single ground of that shed blood. 

7.    We teach that such salvation with its forgiveness of sins,  its impartation of a new nature, and its hope of eternal life, is entirely apart from good works, baptism, church membership or man’s effort –and is of pure grace.

8.    We teach that a true believer is eternally secure, that he cannot lose his salvation, but that sin may interrupt the joy of his fellowship with God and bring the loving discipline of his heavenly Father.

9.    We teach that all who receive Christ become joint-heirs with Christ, and at death, their spirits depart to be with Christ in conscious blessedness and at the rapture their bodies will be raised to the likeness of the body of His glory and dwell forever in divine presence.

10. We teach that it is the goal of every Christian to grow in spiritual maturity through obedience to the Word of God and the indwelling Holy Spirit.

11. We teach that the Holy Spirit is a person, is God, and possesses all the divine attributes.  He indwells all believers, baptizes and seals them at the moment of their salvation, and fills them in response to confession and yieldedness.
