Confessional Lutherans for Christ’s Commission (CLCC) is based on our belief that:

    • The Scriptures of the Old and the New Testament are the inspired and inerrant Word of God and the only rule and norm of faith and practice; and
    • The Confessions of the Lutheran Church are a true and unadulterated exposition of the Word of God.

Our mission is to develop and deliver educational programs and resources that will benefit Lutherans, primarily the laity, throughout the United States.
