Lutheran Campus Ministry at IU is a Reconciling in Christ ministry.  LCM-IU, through its Affirmation of Welcome echoes the apostle Paul's claim that in Christ "there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female" (Galatians 3:28). Christ has made us one. We acknowledge this reconciliation extends to people of all sexual orientations and gender identities.
