We are a District of congregations within LCMC who are free in Christ, accountable to one another and rooted in the scriptures and the Lutheran Confessions.

Augustana District Core Values

theology

Theology

"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

church-icon

Church

"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.”

Mission-icon

Mission

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].

Mission Highlights

Tabor Project

The Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus (EECMY) is a national Church in Ethiopia proclaiming the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ. The EECMY is the largest Lutheran Church in Africa with some five million members.

Augustana District is called to stand with EECMY to support evangelists, to provide EECMY Seminarian support, and to purchase bicycles and motorcycles for evangelists to travel to communities to spread the Gospel. Three worship centers are in the process of construction, one in a very challenging Muslim community.

A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great.

Proverbs 18:16

AIMJ

As a district, we are supporting 4 pastors at $125/month. These pastors are preaching the Gospel to Muslims in northern India and the harvest is great!

Would you, or your congregation like to sponsor a pastor at $125/mo., or $375/quarter?

The District sends quarterly payments of $1,500 to AIMJ, All India Masihi Jamat.

Augustana District Financial Snapshot

I’m excited to report that despite the difficult and uncertain times, Augustana District ended its fiscal year very strong. Income for the period from April 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020 exceeded expenses by $5,217.12. We thank you and your congregations for your strong support. In an effort to be fiscally responsible going forward, the District Council has decided to freeze our budget for the foreseeable future. It is very difficult to make plans for this coming year given the uncertainty and hardships this pandemic has created. I’m reminded of Psalm 56:3 which states “When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.” This organization is going to put our faith and trust in God that he will carry us through!
