The Lutheran Church of Australia (LCA) was established in South Australia in 1838 by German emigrants from Prussia.
LCA's tagline, Where Love Comes to Life , reflects the heart and soul of our mission. In every district and department of the Lutheran Church of Australia, in every congregation and school, in every Australian and New Zealander who identifies as Lutheran, we want to be the place where love comes to life
In other words, we want people to see the love, grace, forgiveness and compassion of Jesus Christ coming to them through every place and every person in our church.
In the words of the classic Lutheran summary of faith, the Lutheran Church of Australia believes that we are saved 'by grace, for Christ's sake, through faith' . Which means that there is nothing we can do to earn God's favour or to gain eternal life. Through his death and resurrection, Jesus Christ has won all this and more for us.
