"The Church That Love Builds"
Emanuel's doors are open to anyone regardless of religious background or affiliation, race, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, language barriers, or economic status. We believe in cultivating a community of friendship and service in a Christian environment. We are called to be faithful Disciples of Christ in the world. We are saved by grace given to us through God's son, Jesus Christ. Our call is to be God's hands in the world. We are called to serve one another, the community, the extended church family, the unchurched, the nation and the world. We are especially called to serve the least among us.To learn more about what it means to be Lutheran, click HERE.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States, with about 4 million members in nearly 10,000 congregations across the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
By God’s grace we can and do live confidently and generously in this community of faith and in service of others, amid the mysteries and paradoxes of this life in Christ – including our human limitations and failings, and the ambiguities, uncertainties and suffering that we experience.
ALL ARE WELCOME
...it is as simple as that.
Working at the intersection of oppressions, ReconcilingWorks embodies, inspires, advocates and organizes for the acceptance and full participation of people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions within the Lutheran communion and its ecumenical and global partners.
