What We Believe

St. Luke is a mission and ministry-driven church located in Gales Ferry, Ct. We are on a lifelong journey together. This journey is characterized by our relationships with God, our community of faith, and our local and global communities.

We believe that we are to grow in our faith and practice of discipleship.


St. Luke is part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA). We believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. With our hands, we do God’s work of restoring and reconciling communities in Jesus Christ’s name throughout the world. We are a church that belongs to Christ. We live in different communities, span all ages, cultures and races and bring to this church unique life experiences and perspectives. There is a place for you here.
