The ELCA is one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States, with more than 3 million members in about 9,000 worshiping communities across the 50 states and in the Caribbean region. Known as the church of "God's work. Our hands.," the ELCA emphasizes the saving grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ, unity among Christians and service in the world. The ELCA's roots are in the writings of the German church reformer Martin Luther.
We are a part of the Northern Texas - Northern Louisiana Synod, one of 65 smaller geographic areas in the US that make up the ELCA. The NT-NL spans as far as Shreveport, LA to Clovis, NM and Durant, OK to Killeen, TX. Our Synod is led by Bishop Erik Gronberg.
