Christian faith deeply values education — faith seeks understanding. The promise of faith undergirds the freedom of inquiry and equips us for serving our neighbors. Students at Augustana are invigorated and strengthened by a sense of community grounded in worship and lived in service.
As a college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Augustana cherishes and serves a heritage of dialogue, dialogue between reason and faith and among diverse perspectives. The Gospel frees us to welcome one another, to listen to the gifts and strengths — and the limitations and distortions — of each expression of faith.
Everyone is welcome at worship! All are challenged and invigorated in service.
