“You shall be my witnesses…to the ends of the earth.”
The ministry of the NALC engages in and supports global missions. Particular emphasis is placed on working with and through existing parachurch organizations such as World Mission Prayer League, China Service Ventures, and the East European Missions Network. The NALC will also enter into church-to-church partnerships with Lutheran church bodies, particularly in the developing world, to support and enhance their efforts in pioneer evangelism.
In this age, however, it is also the case that Christian churches in the global south have much to give to the people of North America. The nations that once sent missionaries have now themselves become mission fields, acutely in need of the Good News of Christ Jesus. The NALC looks forward to deepening partnerships with the Lutheran churches of the global south, in the hope that through our common efforts—with confidence in the power of the Holy Spirit—the Gospel of Jesus Christ might spread and spread again across our respective nations and that we might experience the fervor for Christ’s Gospel shown by new converts in mission churches elsewhere.
