Lutheran Church-International
Welcome in the name of Jesus Christ!
Serving the people of God since 1967.
Confessional
TThe LC-I preaches, teaches, and confesses the Gospel of Jesus Christ as faithfully witnessed by the Augsburg Confession of 1530 and the Book of Concord.
Orthodox
The LC-I maintains a traditional, faithful understanding of Lutheranism within the church catholic. Our worship styles, however, range from historic to contemporary.
Ecumenical
The LC-I will join in ministry with faithful Christians globally in external, or public, work. We will work internally with those church bodies with whom theological cooperation is possible.
Evangelical
The LC-I is a church of the Great Commission. We seek to make disciples of all nations, baptized whose who confess Jesus is Lord, and welcome all who seek a church home within our parishes and missions.
The Lutheran Church-International was established in 1967 as the International Lutheran Fellowship. Today, just as at its founding, there is a strong focus on ministry, ecumenical relationships, and evangelistic work at all levels.
