United by Christ, we reflect God's love through joyful service to all people.
We model Jesus' radical love by embracing all. Created in God's image, you are welcome at Christ's table with us regardless of your ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, age, ability, or life circumstances. We commit ourselves to embracing the work of anti-racism, social and economic justice, and environmental care. We welcome you to come, just as you are, to join us in worship, in learning, and in sharing God's love for all people.
(RIC congregations advocate for the full welcome, inclusion, and equity of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual/aromantic (LGBTQIA+) Lutherans in all aspects of the life of their Church, congregations, and community; recognizing that racism, sexism, ageism, able-ism, heterosexism, homophobia, and all the other artificial distinctions that seek to raise one group into privilege and preference over another, conspire together to diminish our world and church.)
