As a community of the people of God, we are called to minister to all the people in our world. Though our world is a place of alienation and brokenness, Christ calls for reconciliation
and wholeness. We believe we are a welcoming place.
We affirm with the Apostle Paul that in Christ "there is neither Jew nor Greek,
there is neither slave or free, there is neither male or female" (Galatians 3:28).
We recognize the need to proclaim openly that the gospel is God's gift to all people
to be shared unconditionally. God's gospel will be shared at First Evangelical Lutheran Church, member of the ELCA, without regard for age, race, gender identity, sexual orientation,
financial or family status, physical or mental abilities.
A diverse congregation will enrich, nurture, and challenge our life and ministry
as we grow together as the Body of Christ.
