Who we are — a 175-year-old church body — is important, but it pales in comparison to the history of the church. But what we do — preaching and pointing to Jesus for 175 years — is quite significant indeed.
Lutheran Church Missouri Synod
This year, the LCMS celebrates 175 years of God’s blessing in proclaiming, preaching and teaching the truth.
The April issue of The Lutheran Witness celebrates the 175th anniversary of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod, under the theme “Our Lutheran Heritage: 175 years.”
Of the original 14 congregations of the LCMS, 12 remain active. This is the story of how God has taken them through 175 years.
