Our Mission

To advance the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to help AFLC churches plant new free and living churches, to help free and living Lutheran congregations send out missionary pastors with gifts for planting, and to make disciples in the United States. (Matthew 28:18-20)

Our Vision

We are praying for a minimum of three new congregational starts every year for the next ten years. We also pray for three missionary planter-pastors whom our congregations can call. We want to offer financial grants and logistical support to these planting congregations as they help birth new free and living Lutheran congregations.

Our Purpose

To answer the call of Jesus in Matthew 28 by working alongside AFLC churches to plant free and living Lutheran congregations.
