Company Description

Who We Are

We are a global communion of churches in the Lutheran tradition, living and working together for a just, peaceful, and reconciled world

We strive to put our Christian faith into action through humanitarian and development work, advocacy, shared witness, and dialogue

With Passion for the Church and for the World


The overarching framework for our ongoing witness is provided by the calling of LWF member churches to live and work together as a communion of churches in ongoing need of reformation.

We are passionate about the churches holistically witnessing to Christ in their contexts. We seek to equip and resource each other to witness to the liberating grace of God

Out of faith convictions and theological reflections, we are committed to uphold human dignity and work for justice and peace. As a communion we also support people in need, including refugees, internally displaced people and host communities

“Liberated by God’s grace, a communion in Christ, living and working together for a just, peaceful, and reconciled world.”
