Augustana Welcomes All Faiths

Pillar outside of the Chapel of Reconciliation

As a university of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), Augustana is called to Gospel values of hospitality, inclusion and justice for all of God’s creation. As a Reconciling in Christ congregation, the Augustana Student Congregation is committed to being an open and affirming of LGBTQIA2S+ persons, as well as dismantling white supremacy, privilege of every kind and working toward racial equity for BIPOC groups. We value diverse voices and perspectives, including those of our neighbors of other faiths, as outlined in the Inter-Religious Policy Statement of the ELCA.
