STATEMENT OF WELCOME
As people who are being continually transformed by God’s inclusive, reconciling love through Jesus Christ, we are committed to becoming a community where all God’s children are welcomed and valued. On June 8, 2014 the people of Beautiful Savior voted to become a Reconciling in Christ congregation by adopting and pledging to live into the following statement of welcome:
There is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus. – Galatians 3:28
Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church is a Christian community called to gather people from diverse backgrounds and to provide for them a safe and welcoming place that will enable them to grow in faith and service in the name of Jesus Christ. We, the members of Beautiful Savior, proclaim the good news that all people without regard to sexual orientation, gender identity, culture or ethnic background, economic status, physical or mental abilities, family status, gender, or age are welcomed into the life of our congregation, including our worship and sacraments, holy rites, ministry of service and fellowship. We pledge to live as God’s reconciling people in our life together as members of Beautiful Savior and in our outreach to the world.
All are welcome here! YOU are welcome here!
