Trinity ELC became a member of Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ (LCMC) in 2013.
Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ is an association of congregations and individuals who are:
- free in Christ;
- accountable to one another;
- rooted in the Scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions;
- working together to fulfill Christ’s Great Commission to go and make disciples of all nations.
LCMC is an association of congregations. They have a great respect for the reality that the church is where the people of God gather together around Word and Sacrament. The local congregation is where the church becomes a concrete reality for God’s people.
At the same time they are joyously aware that each congregation is a part of the greater body of Christ. The actions of each congregation within our association reflect on our association as a whole. And the actions of our association reflect on the whole body of Christ. For this reason they have committed themselves to a common set of ministry standards.
Congregations have significant latitude in ordering and shaping ministry in their local setting, and they intentionally have made joining and leaving the association simple. They have also agreed to a disciplinary process for addressing congregations whose actions violate our agreed-upon statements of faith and practice.
