A Lifelong Ministry of God's Love
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. For us as the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, this faith comes through the good news of Jesus Christ and gives us the freedom and the courage to wonder, discover and boldly participate in the world. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person – questions, complexities, and all.
As members of the ELCA, we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. With our hands, we do God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus Christ’s name throughout the world. Like individuals, as the ELCA, we have a distinctive personality made up of the following character traits: Generous, Faithful, Hard-working, Caring, Welcoming, Thoughtful, Courageous and Resilient.
