At Lutheran Church of the Resurrection (LCR), members come from a variety of church traditions as well as non-churched lives.  In a world filled with digital communities, we provide face-to-face community based on the principals, teachings, and spiritual disciplines of Jesus the Christ.  Gathering to worship, learn, serve and care for the world God provides, our mission is to Make Christ Known to All through our lives at work, at play, at church, and at home.

You are welcome whether you’re Lutheran or not.  Whether you’re a Republican, Democrat, Independent, Libertarian, Socialist, or just fed-up, you are welcome. You are welcome if you’re of Latin descent, Euro descent, African descent, Asian descent, First nations, or a beautiful variety of all. You are welcome whether you’re gay, straight, bi, trans, asexual, queer, femme or questioning. You are welcome whether you’re single, married, partnered, with children or without.  You are welcome if you are sight-challenged, hearing-challenged and differently-abled. You are welcome if you have faith, need faith, or lost faith.

Whatever your life journey has brought you, you are welcome here among a flawed, but loving community of faith, seeking to change the world from the inside out.

LCR is a congregation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, part of a global communion of 65 million Christians.

LCR has been serving the Oak Forest and neighboring communities since 1963. We are evangelical Lutherans, which means that our focus is on proclaiming the Gospel, and that our ministry is in continuity with the Reformation in 16th Century Europe. We acknowledge our ecumenical ties, including the Roman Catholic church with which we share a heritage, and our “cousins” of the Reformed and Anglican traditions.

Lutheran churches have grown from the teachings of Martin Luther, whose efforts were to reform the practices and theology of the Roman Catholic church. Lutherans confess the faith of the apostolic Christian Church as it is taught in the three EcumenicalCreeds, Nicene, Apostles’, and Athanasian. Namely, that there is only one true God, and yet in this one God there are three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The key doctrine, or material principle, of the Lutheran church is the doctrine of justification. Lutherans believe that humans are saved from their sins by God's grace alone, through faith alone.
