The policy of Metro Lutheran is nonpolitical and nonparochial. It seeks to inform its readers without presuming to advocate policies on issues which become subjects of public debate.

Metro Lutheran is supportive of Lutheran church bodies and the institutions and agencies through which they carry on their work.
