Lutherans for Life

Lutherans For Life is about speaking the truth of life—about Bringing Good News to Life. LFL applies the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the life issues, making Jesus known as the Son of God and Savior of all who can help and make a difference in people’s lives.

The focus of Lutherans For Life is two-fold. First, we desire to say very clearly that death is not an acceptable, God-pleasing way to deal with the problems of life. Second, we desire to say very clearly that there is a better way. We ground both of these in the truth of God’s holy Word. His Word defines what is not acceptable. His Word points to a better way, He who is The Way, Jesus Christ.

Who are Lutherans For Life? Here are few basics:

  • Our Mission: Equipping Lutherans to be Gospel-motivated voices For Life.
  • Our Vision: Every Lutheran, both individually and in community, upholding the God-given value of human life and influencing society to do the same.
  • Lutherans For Life believes that every human life—from conception to natural death regardless of physical or mental challenges or condition of dependence—is precious in God’s sight.
