FAQs

FAQ

What is the ELCA?

The ELCA – or Evangelical Lutheran Church in America – is the national religious body to which St. John’s belongs. Visit the ELCA website for more information about this affiliation of Lutherans in the USA.

FAQ

What do Lutherans believe?

Lutherans believe in the Triune God who is loving, forgiving, and nurturing. We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who died to free us from our sins. And we believe in the Holy Spirit who is active in our lives bringing inspiration and transformation to each of us. For more about what Lutherans believe, take a look at the Statements of Belief of the ELCA.

FAQ

Is Communion open to everyone?

Yes. We believe that the gifts of God are free. We commune by intinction most of the time. You will be handed bread and will dip it into the cup. The red liquid is wine; the clear liquid is grape juice. To read more about the Sacrament of Communion, visit our Baptism & Holy Communion page.
