WELCOME!

Whether you're just starting your spiritual journey or looking for ways to grow deeper in your faith, Cross & Crown Lutheran Church (ELCA) in Indianapolis, Indiana is a great place to be.


The community of Cross and Crown welcomes each and every person with openness, understanding and appreciation. No exceptions.

  • We especially welcome and support those who have felt excluded from the spiritual community.
  • We commit ourselves to treat each person as an equally loved, forgiven, accepted, and blessed child of God.
  • We profess the worth and dignity of every person and recognize each one as created in the image of God.

This means: Cross and Crown welcomes and invites people of all races, ages, cultural backgrounds, sexual orientation or identity, marital status, physical and mental abilities, family structure and economic status.


As a community we live into the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19) which is God’s gift for all people.


All are welcome in this place!
