About Lutheran Campus Ministry of Bemidji


What does "Lutheran" mean? 
Lutheran Campus Ministry is connected to the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)! We're a part of one of the largest Christian denominations in the United States. The ELCA is a church that has a living, daring confidence in God's grace. 

Grace is the hope, forgiveness, joy and new life that is always, always available to us in God. We believe one of the ways grace announces itself in our lives is through faith. For us, faith comes through hearing the good news of God in Jesus: 

  • We are loved unconditionally by the One who created us! 
  • God has promised to meet us and be with us in hard times as well as good ones! 
  • We get to see, feel, hear and know God in our communities and relationships with people around us! 
  • It's beause of God in Jesus that we are called into the courage to wonder, discover and boldly participate in what God is up to in the world!

We welcome you to join this community of faith regardless of your age, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, life experience, complexities and questions. You have a unique story that can only add to the richness of the larger story that makes up the ELCA and Lutheran Campus Ministry. You don't need to believe what we believe to belong! There is a place for you here!
