Mission & Vision

Go therefore and make disciples...

The Mission

Guided by the belief that every person is created in the image of God and deserving of dignity and respect, we are dedicated to fostering a welcoming and inclusive community. We reject all forms of discrimination and embrace diversity as a core value, upholding the principle that unconditional love, as taught by Jesus, is the foundation of our mission. 

The Vision

We are committed to being an all-welcoming, inclusive, and all-serving church, just as Jesus wanted. We believe that God's love extends to all of creation, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, ability, or any other characteristic that makes us unique. We strive to create a space where everyone feels welcome, loved, and accepted, and where we can all come together to worship, learn, and serve. We aim to make a positive impact in our community and reflect God's love and compassion to all. Join us in our mission and become a part of our community of faith! 

"Jesus loved the whole world… not one particular sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, political ideology, social, or economic class. He loved the downtrodden, rejected, and outcast, and here at Duncansville Evangelical Lutheran Church, we will do the same. We welcome you here, and we welcome YOUR story as God continues to write it. "

- Joshua Detrich

"I was at the point in my life where I had gone away from the church for a while and struggled to find a place where I felt like I fit. I attended the required times for my class and met with Pastor Jaime to discuss the Lutheran faith further. From the moment I walked in, I felt welcomed and at home. My journey began all those years ago, and I now rely on my faith daily in my profession. "
