Who We Are
You don't have to be Lutheran. You don't have to have faith all figured out. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome here, whether you're just here for a visit, or looking for a church home. Come and see!
Mt. Carmel Lutheran Church in San Luis Obispo, Calif., is located just a few blocks from California Polytechnic State University. We are a branch of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, a community of faith that is built around a strong belief in God as made known to us in Jesus Christ.
Our mission at Mt. Carmel: "As Christians committed to the belief that we are saved by grace through faith, the congregation of Mt. Carmel exists to GATHER in worship and fellowship, to GROW in the knowledge and love of Christ, and to GO in service to a world in need."
Whether you are young, not so young, a lifelong Lutheran, a curious agnostic, a member of the LGBT community, or just someone seeking a fresh expression of Christ’s love, we welcome you here. Come and see for yourself what Mt. Carmel is all about. You’ll find all kinds of people at different points of their faith journey…gathering, growing, and going…together! Join us; there’s a home for you here!
