Association of Confessional Lutheran Churches


Association of Confessional Lutheran Churches

=History=

The Association of Confessional Lutheran Churches was established in the early part of the 21st Century to meet the needs of Lutheran congregations which have been removed from the Evangelical Lutheran Synod.

Purpose

The root purpose of the ACLC, then, is to maintain a pool of pastors from which member congregations can call.

There are 8 member churches. There are also some additional unnamed churches (that remain members of the ELS).
