A Disciple-Making Movement

Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Matthew 20:18-20

The Church of the Lutheran Brethren (CLB) is a family of 116 congregations in the United States and Canada, with 1,500 daughter congregations in Cameroon, Chad, Japan and Taiwan now organized into four national church bodies. The CLB, as a denomination, exists as a disciple-making movement—serving congregations in obedience to the Great Commission, locally, nationally and internationally.

Lutheran Brethren Seminary

LBS is called by the Church of the Lutheran Brethren to serve the church and world by living in and preparing others to live in the blessing of the Triune God and His call to participate in His mission of grace to bless all nations in Christ.

North American Mission

NAM seeks to enhance health and growth opportunities within our family of churches. The Church of the Lutheran Brethren has called a Regional Pastor for each of our five regions to encourage pastors in the mission of their congregation.

LB International Mission

LBIM brings the good news of Jesus Christ to people who have no indigenous church through which the Gospel can be spread. We currently have missionaries in Chad, Japan, and Taiwan working among unreached people groups.
