The NALC is a fast-growing Christian church body in the Lutheran tradition, uniting more than 100,000 Lutherans in more than 350 congregations across North America. The NALC embodies the theological center of Lutheranism in North America and stands firmly within the global Lutheran mainstream.
The NALC is a church family committed to the authority of the Bible as the inspired Word of God. In keeping with the Lutheran Confessions, we believe all doctrines should and must be judged by the teaching of Scripture.
The NALC has embraced four core values which shape our common life: Christ-Centered, Mission-Driven, Traditionally-Grounded, and Congregationally-Focused. We are a church centered on the unique Gospel of Jesus Christ, animated by missions and evangelism, grounded in the 2,000 year tradition of Christian faith, and organized chiefly to serve our congregations.
The NALC is a renewed Lutheran community moving forward in faith, focused on living out Christ’s Great Commission to go and make disciples in North America and around the globe. If you are a visitor, we invite you to learn more about our church family.
