A Heritage of Care

Welcome to St. John Lutheran Church in Indianapolis! 

Being part of a family heritage can change the course of your life. And when you’re part of St. John Lutheran, you’re part of a family with a long heritage of showing up for each other. For all life’s ages and stages. 

At St. John Lutheran, lonely people find family. Broken people find healing and wholeness. Families find support to raise their children. And everyone finds a place of true community.

Our Guiding Statement

Cultivating Christ's Community through Courageous Discipleship and Compassionate Action.

How we live this out at St. John?

These traits are part of our DNA at St. John. We hope you experience this in every interaction you have with our church.


For us, being unashamed of the Gospel leads to a life of JOY and FREEDOM! One of the sweetest parts of our faith is getting to experience a life of joy together.

Our courage is rooted in the heart. It takes courage to follow Jesus, to forgive, to persevere and stand firm in our faith.

We have a heritage of being committed. We’re committed to each other, our beliefs and our Lutheran tradition.

Caring is core to our DNA. We show up for each other. We pitch in. We serve. We listen. We have compassion. We open our doors to our community.
