Lutherans are a diverse group of people, convinced that the Holy Spirit is leading us toward unity in the household of God.
Members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America are connected to the faith of the church through the ages and around the world.
Lutherans believe in the Triune God. We are part of God’s unfolding plan.
When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere and of every time.
When we study the Bible and pray, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story.
When we serve others and address social issues that affect the common good, we live out our Christian faith.
