Who We Are
Welcome! Wherever you are in life’s journey, we invite you to join us as we make progress toward a more mature understanding of God, a more confident belief in His grace, and a more meaningful life of joyful, practical, loving service.
Pilgrim is a Christian congregation serving our community from a facility on Northwest Boulevard in Spokane. We are affiliated with the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, a church body founded 160 years ago by immigrants to Missouri, among other places, which now has nearly 2.5 million members in every state from every ethnic group and sister churches worldwide. Our name reflects a belief that God has given our lives a purpose and a destination.
Lutheran is a Christian branch that sprouted in the 1500s when Martin Luther, a German scholar, tried to reform the Roman Catholic Church but got kicked out instead! We are conservative, in that we base our beliefs solely on the Bible as God’s authoritative message, but liberal in trying to live out our faith through fearless love for all people. We believe that the heart of Christianity is the good news of what God has done for us through Jesus Christ, and we are committed to sharing that news with others while living in the joy and freedom that it brings.
Church, we believe, is not a building, institution, or program, but a group of people seeking to know and serve God together. Whether gathered as a large group for worship or as small groups for support, we act as extended family to help each other grow in faith. We hope that you will check out what we do online then come find out who we are in person!
