We, the members of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, recognize that all people are made in God’s image and we want to celebrate that recognition.

As children of God and disciples of Christ seeking peace and justice in the world, we welcome, affirm, and include all people into the fullness of God’s love. We celebrate and lift up people of all races, cultures, ages, sexual orientations, gender identities, physical or mental abilities, economic statuses, political affiliation, appearances, family status, and citizenship as equally loved and valued in the eyes of God and in this place. All are invited to join this community as we worship God, grow in faith, and strive to love and serve one another. All, without exception, are welcome in this place.

We, the members of St. John’s, BELIEVE membership is based on the promises we affirm in baptism and confirmation (Affirmation of Baptism):

  • to live among God’s faithful people;
  • to hear God’s word and share in the Lord’s supper;
  • to proclaim the Good News of God in Christ through word and deed;
  • to serve all people following the example of our Lord Jesus Christ;
  • to strive for justice and peace in all the world.

Based on these promises and challenges, membership invites a certain response. We gather around Word and Sacrament.  If we are not present to hear or partake, we are not living among God’s faithful people, hearing His Word or sharing in His supper.
