Where God is Allowed His Spirit Works Among His People


The Church Matters website was created:

to demonstrate that indeed church does matter and solutions matter too.

to show how the church is nurtured through sound Scriptural teaching.

to impress upon the importance of and why solid Christian teaching and practices also matter.


To support quality orthodox educational resources for the laity of Lutheran congregations.

In our humble effort to support quality education, we focus on providing presentations, Bible Studies, books and booklets that can be obtained either by purchase or download. Most of these items are free, however, there are some where there is quite a bit of detail and are quite lengthy. We only request a small amount of revenue in order to support the maintenance of the site and internet access. Click here for a flyer that summaries the major contents of the site.

All profits above expenses will be donated bi-annually to Confessional Lutheran organizations that are teaching the laity. Your donations are also helpful to meet this objective. Use the PayPal button below for either donating or paying for items purchased on this site.

Hi, I’m Gene White, creator of this website. How this site came about is a very interesting path all about how our gracious heavenly Father leads us through life doing His will.
