Available for all Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod congregation, organization, and member websites. Please note: you MUST be or have been affiliated with the Missouri-Synod in some way, shape or form in order to be included in this web ring. Please note that this webring is not officially sponsored or endorsed by the Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod since a congregation directory is already in service at http://www.lcms.org/churches. New criteria: Given the recent upheaval in the Missouri Synod, this ring is now open to people, organizations, or congregations that have been affiliated with LCMS in the past, and who remain loyal to orthodox Lutheran teaching. Martin Luther was one of the leaders of the Reformation, who challenged the Roman Catholic church, at the risk of his life. The rich legacy he gave us includes the fact that the Bible teaches that salvation is a free gift, by grace and faith, not something we can earn, or to which we can contribute. We also have his wonderful German translation of the Bible, and some hymns, plus other writings. This ring will share these with you.
