Reconciling in Christ
At the annual meeting of Faith Lutheran Church, held on 11 June 2017, the congregation voted to become a Reconciling in Christ congregation.
We establish Faith Lutheran Church as a Reconciling in Christ congregation, where we publicly welcome and affirm members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.
We adopt the following welcome statement:
We welcome all because God loves and welcomes all. We welcome people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. We welcome all people who may have been excluded because of human distinctions such as race, ethnicity, ability, addiction, physical or mental health, age, socioeconomic status, or anything else that too often divides us. We commit ourselves to the work of anti-racism, in institutions and internally; interpersonal and structurally. We welcome and continue to affirm all who are seeking God’s love and grace. Our unity is in Christ.
