With passion for the church and for the world
We are a global communion of churches in the Lutheran tradition on a common journey of renewal. We strive to put our faith into action within and beyond the communion, and seek God’s Word and Spirit to guide us.
The LWF is a global communion of 148 churches in the Lutheran tradition, representing over 75.5 million Christians in 99 countries.
We strive to put our faith into action within and beyond the communion, and seek God’s Word and Spirit to guide us.
This action takes a variety of forms from theological reflection and dialogue with other churches and faiths, to deepening relationships, sharing about our faith, serving those in need and advocating for a more just, peaceful and reconciled world.
We share a vision, purpose and values. We work to strengthen our relationships and build an inclusive, respectful communion. We are on a common journey of renewal shaped and enriched by the different contexts within which we live.
Liberated by God’s grace, a communion in Christ living and working together for a just, peaceful, and reconciled world
