About us


The CLC is a confessional Lutheran church body which is dedicated to proclaiming the Good News of Christ crucified for sinners. 


The CLC is represented by congregations throughout the United States and Canada, as well as throughout the continent of Africa, India, and neighboring nations.  All of the CLC member churches confess that the Bible is the inspired and unerring Word of God.  

“These are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” John 20:31 (ESV)

CLC Missions

We believe that Christ’s death on the cross paid for each and every sin of each and every person on earth. We believe that therefore whoever has trust in this promise of God receives the benefits of that act, namely eternal salvation. We believe that the Bible is the pure and perfect word of God given to men for the purpose of telling us this wonderful news and that whatever it says is absolute truth. With joy and thankfulness we promote and spread this same message to every corner of the globe, in order that all men might hear, believe, and receive salvation.

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,” (Romans 3:23-24)


Christian Education

We believe that the Lutheran school is a proper response to God’s concern for the Christian education of children. God leaves no doubt about His expectations in Christian education. Both in commands and in promises He expresses His earnest concern for the Christian upbringing of children.

Many of our congregations provide a Christian elementary education for their students. Teachers and volunteers are committed to providing a quality education, integrating our Christian beliefs into all aspects of their education.

We are blessed to see these students continue on to high school, college, and careers living the faith they have been taught — and becoming productive citizens of their congregations and communities.

God's Word is our great heritage
  And shall be ours forever;
To spread its light from age to age
  Shall be our chief endeavor.
Through life it guides our way,
  In death it is our stay.
Lord, grant, while worlds endure,
  We keep its teachings pure
  Throughout all generations.
