About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

Who we are

The Way Church cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. The Way Church is a family of individuals that have found freedom in the Gospel, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.

Where we come from

As the Washington metropolitan area continues its rapid expansion, mission-minded Christians in Northern Virginia have faithfully asked, “Where can we share the gospel next?” In 2016 Trinity Lutheran Church in Woodbridge, VA partnered with our national church body to plant a new church in Fredericksburg, VA.

This church’s Launch Team – made up of 16 families – met for the first time on September 11th, 2016. The Way Church was born.

On September 10th, 2017, we officially launched public worship services here in Fredericksburg.

What we are a part of

The Way is are a proud member of an international church body called the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). The WELS has been around since 1850 and, while headquartered in Wisconsin, serves hundreds of thousands of Christians in North America and around the world. To be Lutheran means that we accept the scriptural truths that ignited the reformation of the Christian church in the 16th century and led to a renewed focus on the gospel.

Where we're headed

The Way Church is committed to building a faith community that has its foundation built on Jesus Christ. We are committed to the bold vision of building that which church should be - a place for you to find rest, wisdom, and life in Christ Jesus!
