Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
The ELCA confesses the Triune God — Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We proclaim Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. In our preaching and teaching the ELCA trusts the Gospel as the power of God for the salvation of all who believe.
ELCA teaching or theology is at the heart of our proclamation and ministry. It does not have an answer for all questions, not even all religious questions. Teaching or theology equips members to be witnesses in speech and in action of God’s rich mercy in Jesus Christ.
