Living Statement of Affirmation of LGBTQ2SIA+ Persons
This statement was adopted by Our Saviour's Lutheran Membership on January 31, 2021
At Our Saviour's Lutheran Church, we are an ELCIC congregation of diverse sexual orientations, gender identities, gender expressions, ethnicities, ages, beliefs, histories and experiences. We live in God's unconditional love and grace, and believe this gift is for all.
We believe we are all called to fully live out God's purpose as we have been created. Through our experience of God's love we are called to learn and grow, creating a spiritual home in our community for LGBTQ2SIA+ people and families to be who they are.
We welcome people wherever they are on their spiritual journey. We seek an expansive understanding of a loving God. Through curiosity, critical thinking and contemplative practices, God opens us to infinite possibilities for dynamic connection, growth, and wholeness in Christ.
This is a living covenant that will continue to evolve as our understanding grows.
