Non-governmental Organization based in Switzerland

The LWF is a global communion of 144 churches in the Lutheran tradition, representing over 72 million Christians in 98 countries.

We strive to put our faith into action within and beyond the communion, and seek God’s Word and Spirit to guide us.

This action takes a variety of forms from theological reflection and dialogue with other churches and faiths, to deepening relationships, sharing about our faith, serving those in need and advocating for a more just, peaceful and reconciled world.

We share a vision, purpose and values. We work to strengthen our relationships and build an inclusive, respectful communion.

We are on a common journey of renewal shaped and enriched by the different contexts we live in.
