Orienting Perspectives of Ministry

All of our teaching is oriented by:

Lutheran Identity

A shared passion for the biblical story, centered on God’s sheer love in Jesus Christ, which forms us as a community of worship, study, and service, rooted in the Lutheran confessional tradition.

Multiculturalism

A shared conviction that serious engagement with one’s own and others’ cultures compels us to imagine and embrace new ways to minister within a diverse world.

Public Sphere

A shared commitment to faith active in love, calling us to engage the economic, political, and social issues of the day.

Religious Pluralism

A shared belief that conversation and mutual critique with other Christians and with those of other religious faiths expand our understanding of the human condition and deepen our own theological grounding as Lutheran Christians, revealing what we have to gain from and give to others.
