Our History

In the mid-1960s, Pastor Frederick E. Bartling and several families founded Faith Evangelical Lutheran Church in Elizabeth, Illinois. With another group of families, Pastor Bartling founded Our Savior Lutheran Church in Freeport, Illinois. From small beginnings, both congregations grew and for many years supported their own pastors and individual mission focuses. Today, their stories intertwine more than ever. In 2017, Our Savior and Faith decided to pool their resources and utilize the same pastor. They now work together to reach and help the community.
