Augustana District Core Values



"The Word of God is Jesus Christ[2], the proclamation of him[3], and the Holy
Scriptures[4]. This Word functions as both law and gospel, which need to be distinguished, but not separated. The law orders society and convicts us of sin, showing us our need for a Savior[5]. The gospel is the power of God that liberates us from sin, death, and the power of the devil, and brings us, by grace, from death to life[6].

2 John 1:1, 14, 3 Matthew 18:20; I , John 1:1, 2, 4 II Timothy 3:16, 5 Smalcald, Part III, Article II. The Law, 6 Romans 1:16



"Sinners are made right with God by grace alone through faith alone on account of Christ alone. This is the article of faith by which the church stands or falls."[1]

1 Augustana IV; Smalcald, Part II, Article 1: “Nothing in this article can be given up or compromised.”



Christ commanded that his Word be proclaimed[7]. Through it, the Holy Spirit works faith when and where he pleases[8] and repentant sinners are elected unto salvation. Christians live out their earthly lives as totally justified and totally sinful[9].

7 Luke24:46-47, 8 Romans 10:17; Augustana V; Small Catechism Part II, Third Article. , 9 Smalcald, Part III, Article III. Penitence.


Are you part of the amazing plan?

God is doing amazing things through the Augustana District! In proclaiming the Gospel, we have seen the Holy Spirit grow our ministry (Multiply) by a clear focus on God’s salvation in Christ Jesus (Magnify)! Those who attended the recent AD Convention in Hutchinson, MN in April learned that Augustana’s strong leadership has led to growth – reaching out to more and more pastors, congregations, and mission partners! Strategic growth involves training and leadership events, youth retreats and meetings, staffing time, and new ideas to meet the needs of congregations. It also calls for increased support to our mission partners in India, Ethiopia and beyond, as well as more support for congregations and pastors. Also, there is hope for a young adult mission start-up, in addition to responding to congregational requests for conflict resolution. With all these mission opportunities before the Augustana District, we want to focus again on the Multiply x2 Magnify fundraising campaign. This campaign hopes to raise funds for the growth of AD’s work. Giving to M2M is beyond the regular giving to the AD. The M2M effort is to support the expanding ministries in the District. The AD’s tagline “Theology/Church/ Mission” reflects its commitment to solid Biblical theology that guides our work; to the local congregations and their work; and to reaching out around the world, as well as to youth and young adults here at home! The District Council has committed $40,000 to helping realize these goals! But this will meet only part of the need. Your generous support of the Multiply x2 Magnify campaign can help to make all these goals possible. We are so grateful for the many congregations and individuals who support the important work of the Augustana District!

Please continue to pray for the AD and the work that God is giving us. For those of you who have not donated in the past, we hope you will consider giving a financial gift to continue on this planned path. You can do so by:
  • Donate here –>
  • Mailing a check to: Augustana District 335 Main St. S. Hutchinson, MN 55350
  • Encouraging your church leaders to support the AD in the annual budget

Please make sure to designate if gifts are for regular giving or additional M2M gifts. In the coming months, AD ambassadors will connect with your congregation. Watch the district’s Facebook page and the Augustana District and LCMC websites for updates.

We urge you and your congregation to be a part of this exciting work!
