Who We Are

As Lutherans we live by the understanding that our faithful response to God’s grace includes working for justice and peace and being an inclusive community that embraces all people, including those of every culture, race and sexual orientation.  This response is rooted in an important Bible verse for us, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God…” Ephesians 2:8

St. Martin’s Evangelical Lutheran Church is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.  The ELCA consists of four million members across the United States and Puerto Rico. Protestant Reformation history dating back to Martin Luther in the 1500’s shape our church view. It was Martin Luther who encouraged the church to stay biblically minded and guided by Jesus’ gracious welcome.
