Messiah Lutheran Church is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We have been in the community of Burlington, Iowa for more than 150 years.

Messiah is a friendly congregation organized in 1859 by Swedish Lutheran immigrants who built their church on “West Hill” in Burlington. The present building on West Avenue was dedicated in 1962.

Messiah is known for its liturgy and music, Christian education, friendship and fellowship, and for our involvement in the life of Jesus Christ in this community and in the world. Come worship with us!
