The ELCA

 

  • The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is one of the largest Christian denominations in the US, welcaemblem smallith over 4 million members in nearly 10,000 congregations across 50 states and the Caribbean region.
  • Known as the church of "God's work. Our hands," the ELCA emphasizes the saving grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ, unity among Christians, and service in the world.
  • The ELCA's roots are in the Bible and writings of the German church reformer, Martin Luther.

 

Ecumenism

The ELCA pursues a model of ecumenism called "full communion," a relationship based on a common confessing of the Christian faith and a mutual recognition of baptism and sharing of the Lord's supper. The ELCA shares full communion relationships with six denominations:

  • Presbyterian Church (USA)
  • Reformed Church of America
  • The Episcopal Church
  • The Moravian Church
  • United Church of Christ
  • United Methodist Church
