Called Forward Together in Christ
Future Directions of the ELCA

Propelled by a commitment to Lutheran traditions and to being a community of faith that is always forming and being renewed, the ELCA’s presiding bishop, Church Council and Conference of Bishops initiated a process to engage the ELCA in conversation about future directions – to help this church journey faithfully and effectively together in the years ahead.

The Church we are becoming . . .

  1. A thriving church spreading the gospel and deepening faith for all people 

  2. A church equipping people for their baptismal vocations in the world and this church

  3. An inviting and welcoming church that reflects and embraces the diversity in our communities and the gifts and opportunities that diversity brings

  4. A visible church deeply committed to working ecumenically and with other people of faith for justice, peace and reconciliation in our communities and around the world

  5. A well-governed, connected and sustainable church
