Why are we Lutheran?

We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. 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 Christ’s name throughout the world.

We are part of the African Descent Lutheran Association, Los Angeles Chapter. ADLA works for engaging, involving and investing in the gifts, interests and capacity of people of African descent in every aspect of the life of the ELCA.

We are SoCal Lutherans, a network of Lutheran churches throughout Southern California who publicly welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people as guests, members, and leaders. We have been a Reconciling in Christ congregation for more than twenty years. If you have been to Pride, you have seen us SoCal Lutherans and our rainbow tattoos.

Along with our Pasadena neighbors Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church and Hill Avenue Grace Lutheran Church, we are part of the Foothill Conference of the ELCA Southwest California Synod.
