Society Religion and Spirituality Christianity Denominations Lutheran Synods Lutheran Church-Canada
This Christian denomination is a direct result of the Protestant Reformation begun in 1517 by Martin Luther in Wittenberg, Germany. Lutheran Church-Canada was founded in 1988 when the Canadian congregations of the St. Louis based Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod formed an autonomous Canadian church comprising 325 congregations organized in three districts. The Synodical office is in Winnipeg, Manitoba, while the offices of the Alberta-British Columbia District are in Edmonton, Alberta; the Central District in Regina, Saskatchewan; and East District in Kitchener, Ontario. The denomination retains close ties with the LC-MS. The two church bodies are in fellowship and work cooperatively in missions and other synodical endeavours with other Lutheran church bodies around the world that follow the Biblically-based Lutheran Confessions.
