Relationship With Other Churches

The ELCIC is one of about 145 member churches of the Lutheran World Federation, which has its headquarters in Geneva. Those churches are in 79 countries representing over 70 million Lutherans.

Membership in the Canadian Council of Churches helps the ELCIC to work with other Canadian denominations in talking about important national issues. We work cooperatively on social issues with other Canadian Christians through the various Canadian coalitions. We would never be able to do the necessary research without this arrangement.

The ELCIC is also a member of the World Council of Churches. The work of the WCC has encouraged Lutherans in Canada to think about such things as sacramental and ministry practices, economic justice and care for the environment.
