“Marked with the cross of Christ forever, we are claimed, gathered, and sent for the sake of the world.”
- The mission statement of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
"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. We are a church that belongs to Christ. There is a place for you here."
