Called to Proclaim

As the Rocky Mountain Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, we claim a particular understanding of our call to bear witness to God’s grace in the world. This call is rooted in our understanding of Scripture, shaped by the stated purpose in our governing documents, and grounded in our baptismal promises. 

“In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God” we hear in the opening verses of the Gospel of John. What a powerful image to begin the unfolding of the story of God incarnate! These words from John remind us that God’s Word is both embodied in our sacred texts and in the life and witness of Jesus. As followers of Jesus, we are called to continue that proclamation of God’s unconditional radical love for all of creation in both word and deed.
