The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Our Redeemer is a member of the ELCA. 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’ name throughout the world.
We are the ELCA...radicals by grace!
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. [from the ELCA home page]
In these days of political and social turmoil we take courage and comfort in the words of Indiana-Kentucky Synod Bishop Bill Gafjken’s further reminder that we do not, and need not, agree about everything to still respect each and every person as one of God’s own. “To do so is to offer the radical welcome of Jesus to each other."
