The Church confesses Christ, who has broken down the dividing wall (Ephesians 2:14). Christ, our
peace, has put an end to the hostility of race, ethnicity, gender, and economic class. The Church
proclaims Christ, confident this good news sets at liberty those captive behind walls of hostility
(cf. Luke 4:18).

From the ELCA Social Statement on Race, Ethnicity and Culture:


The Church confesses Christ, who has broken down the dividing wall (Ephesians 2:14). 

Christ, our peace, has put an end to the hostility of race, ethnicity, gender, and economic class. 

The Church proclaims Christ, confident this good news sets at liberty those captive behind walls of hostility 

(cf. Luke 4:18).

We of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America have recognized ourselves 

to be in mission and ministry in a multicultural society, 

and have committed ourselves to welcome cultural diversity. 

Given our history, the commitment was neither quick nor easy.

. . .


We of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America rejoice in our freedom in Christ Jesus. 

But we know we must persevere in our commitment to follow Christ and to serve neighbor, 

and live up to our specific commitments. 

While we have taken many measures 

fitting to a church in mission and ministry in a multicultural society, 

we still falter.

. . .


All of us sin and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).

. . .


We expect our leadership to name the sin of racism and lead us in our repentance of it. 

Although racism affects each one of us differently, 

we must take responsibility for our participation, 

acknowledge our complicity, 

repent of our sin, 

and pray God will bring us to reconciliation.

. . .


So, the Church must cry out for justice, 

and thereby resist the cynicism fueled by visions that failed and dreams that died. 

The Church must insist on justice, 

and thereby refuse to blame victimized people for their situations. 

The Church must insist on justice, 

and thereby assure participation of all people.

. . .


Participation in public life is essential to doing justice 

and undoing injustice. 

Only when people affected by racial and ethnic division speak publicly of painful realities, 

does there emerge the possibility of justice for everyone.

. . .


This church will support legislation, ordinances, and resolutions that guarantee to all persons equally:


 Civil rights, including full protection of the law 

and redress under the law of discriminatory practices; 

and to all citizens, the right to vote;


Access to quality education, health care, and nutrition;


Opportunity for employment with fair compensation, and possibilities for 

job training and education, apprenticeship, promotion, and union membership;


Opportunity for business ownership;


Access to legal, banking, and insurance services;


The right to rent, buy, and occupy housing in any place; 


and


Access to public transportation and accommodation.


Christ the King Lutheran Church is a welcoming community of persons of all
ages and backgrounds, with joys and sorrows, gifts and flaws, loved of God.
rejoicing in God's grace, sustained by God's word, and inspired by God's spirit,
we care for others, work for justice, pray for peace, and share the gospel of Christ,
as we journey through life as best we can, trusting God for the outcome.


We are a congregation of the New Jersey Synod of the  Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
