What does “Reconciling in Christ” mean in this congregation?
Lord of Life Lutheran Church is one of about 400 ELCA congregations in the United States and Canada which publicly welcome people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
The Reconciling in Christ program seeks to call the Lutheran Church back to its historic center in the gospel of Jesus Christ, receiving and welcoming any and all who are seeking God in the good news of God’s unconditional love.
The New Testament is clear that since all human beings have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, all human beings are redeemed not by their own efforts, good works, or striving, but solely by the gift of Jesus Christ upon the Cross, a gift which human beings receive simply as God’s grace. GLBT persons or couples—people of all sexual orientations and gender identities—are unconditionally welcome here!
Are you single? Dating? In a long-term relationship? Are you raising a family? Providing elder care? Are you lesbian or gay, transgender, bisexual? You are welcome to participate fully in the life of Lord of Life Lutheran Church.
