About the ELCA

Regardless of age, race, or status in life, members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) welcome you to join this community of faith. The ELCA is an engaged, active body of people who put faith in God into action -- in millions of ways, all over the world. Join us!

The ELCA was formed more than 25 years ago. This new church was formed from three separate and well-established North American church bodies: the American Lutheran Church, the Association of Evangelical Lutheran Churches, and the Lutheran Church in America. Beginning January 1, 1988, these churches, with shared beliefs and missions, officially formed the ELCA. Two decades later, this energized church is composed of 4.8 million members and nearly 10,500 congregations across the US and Caribbean. Today, the ELCA reflects the rich and diverse heritage of the people it serves.
