About Incarnation Lutheran Church

Incarnation Lutheran Church is a welcoming, fully inclusive community, acting in service to all of God’s people for over 50 years. We accomplish this mission most effectively by pursuing four different strategies that we call the Four Faces of Mission.

People at ILC feel like they are part of a friendly, caring family. At Incarnation we hear repeatedly how much God loves us, just as we are. We love being able to be of service in a wide variety of ways. We are grateful to be a community of people who love God and who love our fellow humans. We have a wonderful music program, which greatly enhances our worship experience. And we are working towards a RIC (Reconciling in Christ) designation.

Four Faces of Mission

Parish Mission

encompasses worship, music, education and all the logistics necessary to allow us to serve God on campus and beyond.

Local Mission

is the service that we offer to the local community.

Domestic Mission

provides the context for service throughout the USA, beyond our own neighborhood.

Global Mission

is work that God enables us to do throughout the world.

Our Mission & Beliefs

As a nurturing family of believers, recipients of God’s grace and mercy, we welcome and invite all people to:

  • Know Christ in faith
  • Grow in faith through worship and education

As Lutherans, we believe in salvation through:

  • Grace Alone
  • Faith Alone
  • Scripture Alone

Founded over 50 years ago, Incarnation Lutheran Church, or ILC as we like to call it, has served Poway and the surrounding communities through ministries for children and youth, adults, and seniors. We are an ELCA church.
