As a faith community based in the example of Jesus Christ and the stated values of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we recognize the need to explicitly state that the gospel is God’s gift to ALL PEOPLE to be shared unconditionally. Thus, because we strive to be a spiritual home for all God’s people, we not only welcome, but fully include all persons, without exception, and without regard for:
· gender identity
· sexual orientation
· financial or family status
· physical or mental abilities
· denominational past or faith experience
· strength or faith or doubt
· immigration status
· language ability
· criminal past (w/ boundaries)
or any other human distinction used to discriminate and exclude.
Our welcome logo is derived from the United Nations symbol for human rights, recognizing the dignity and inherent worth of all persons. We regard all as cherished creations of God!
This is Christ's church.
There is a place for you here.
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person--questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world.
