What is Reconciling in Christ?
The Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Program recognizes Lutheran congregations, synods, colleges, seminaries and other organizations that publicly welcome lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender believers. The complete Reconciling in Christ Roster now exceeds 550 settings, including Christ Lutheran Church.
Christ Lutheran became part of the Reconciling in Christ community in February, 2001 by adopting our Affirmation of Welcome that states, “All who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and have been baptized are welcome into membership regardless of race, sexual orientation, education level, economic status, ethnicity, ability, health or geographic distance.”
