Good Shepherd Affiliations and Partnerships
Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod
The LCMS is an association of 6,000 Lutheran congregations that are bound together by the common confession of faith in the Book of Concord. Each local congregation is independent, but we work together especially for the training of church workers, for world missions, and for other ministries that extend beyond that of the local congregation.
