Church membership

At the end of 2021, 51% (121,938) of all Vantaa residents were members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland.

All baptised Christians can join the Evangelical Lutheran Church without being baptised again. If you are not baptised, you can learn more about the meaning of baptism in Lutheranism.

Church membership brings with it both rights and responsibilities. As a member, you engage in the Church's mission of sharing the Gospel and helping people by participating in church activities and paying the church tax (presently 1% of your gross income). In addition, you can use all the services we offer and make your voice heard by voting in parish elections every four years.

Learn more on the website of the Evangelical Lutheran Church.
