The purpose of the Book of Faith Initiative is to increase biblical literacy and fluency for the sake of the world.


The Book of Faith is an initiative of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. The Book of Faith initiative invites the whole church to become more fluent in the first language of faith, the language of Scripture, in order that we might live into our calling as a people renewed, enlivened, empowered, and sent by the Word.

The Minneapolis Area Synod task force on Book of Faith has been working hard to aid congregations to help our people access the Scriptures so that lives can be inspired and we can grasp the great gift of grace provided for us in the person of Jesus.
