Affirmation of Welcome

Magnolia Lutheran Church is where everyone can find a welcoming, caring, friendly home. Here is a sanctuary, 
filled with the love and grace of our Lord and modeled by our Savior Jesus Christ. 

We believe God’s love is for everyone and so commit to provide inclusive acceptance, spiritual nourishment, 
inspiring kindness and a gracious and loving faith community.

We believe all of God's creations are holy and welcome to receive the sacraments, and to share in fellowship 

and service here. All people of every ability, race, family or marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, 

economic condition and background belong here, Reconciling in Christ as children of God.

     All are beautiful as they are
          All are part of God’s masterpiece
               All are loved as they are
                    All are welcome here

Lutherans believe in the Triune God. God created and loves all of creation -- the earth and the seas and all of the world’s inhabitants. We believe that God's Son, Jesus Christ, transforms lives through his death on the cross and his new life, and we trust that God's Spirit is active in the world.
the Holy Bible

We are part of God’s unfolding plan. When we gather for worship, we connect with believers everywhere. When we study the Bible or hear God’s word in worship, we are drawn more deeply into God’s own saving story.

The convictions shared by Christians from many different traditions are expressed in statements of belief called creeds.

These ecumenical creeds that Lutherans affirm and use in worship confess the faith of the church through the ages and around the world.

The Confession of Faith of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America is part of our founding constitution. The ELCA accepts the following creeds as true declarations of the faith of this church:
