Who We Are - At Grace Lutheran Church, we dedicate ourselves to Sharing God's Grace. Sharing God's Grace is more than a catchphrase for us--it is our mission, our way of life, our beginning and ending point. As members of the largest Lutheran denomination in North America--the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)--We join 4.9 million other Lutherans of the ELCA in believing that we are saved by Grace alone on account of Christ Alone! To learn more about what Lutherans believe, visit the ELCA Welcome Center or Grace's New Member Orientation information.
