About Us

Welcome to American Lutheran Church!

We invite all into our inclusive, diverse community of faith as we seek to live the way of Christ’s unconditional and reconciling love. Just as Jesus welcomed each person as a beloved Child of God, so we welcome people of all ages, races, ethnicity, culture, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic, family or immigration status. Basically, if you’re breathing, you’re welcome here. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey this is a non-judgmental place where doors are open and questions are always invited. Feeling spiritually connected in today’s complex society can be challenging. Join us as we grow in faith to do God’s work in Christ’s name for the life of the world. “Peace be with you.” (John 20:26)

Our mission is “to witness the good news of God’s love through service in our community and beyond.” Together we aim to see what God is up to in our neighborhood and the world, listening to the promptings of the Spirit to discern what God would have us do.

For over 76 years our congregation has been “a light on the way” at the corner of Hollywood Way and Clark Avenue for all who seek a place to belong and a purpose for their lives—to love one another as God first loved us.

American Lutheran Church Burbank is a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) community.
