Open scripture. Join the conversation.
The purpose of the Book of Faith Initiative is to increase biblical literacy and fluency for the sake of the world.
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) has made a commitment to encourage all members of our congregations, from children to adults, to dig deeper into our book of faith, the Bible. The Book of Faith Initiative recommends a new model for our church—a grassroots approach embracing a common vision in which all are invited to open scripture and join the conversation. Each community is encouraged to decide how the Book of Faith Initiative will become a vital part of its own ministry.
