The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has made a commitment to encourage all members of our congregations, from children to adults, to dig deeper into our book of faith, the Bible. The Book of Faith Initiative recommends a new model for our church. A grass-roots approach embracing a common vision in which all are invited to open scripture and join the conversation. Each community is encouraged to decide how the Book of Faith Initiative will become a vital part of its own ministry. Learn more here.
The ELCA has made available resources for you and your congregation to use. Find them here along with more information about the Book of Faith Initiative.
For the Western Iowa Synod Pastor Chris Lang is the Book of Faith representative.
