Our Mission

Marked with the cross of Christ forever, we are claimed, gathered and sent for the sake of the world.


This is the mission statement 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.
