What is the Lutheran Church?

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) is a denomination that confesses the historic, orthodox Christian faith, a faith built on “the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone” (Eph. 2:20). The LCMS, headquartered in St. Louis, Mo., is mission-oriented and Bible-based. LCMS doctrine reflects the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther, as summarized in The Book of Concord: The Confessions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church.

As a member of the LCMS, Trinity is also a member of a smaller family of churches known as the Mid-South District. The Mid-South is an alliance of congregations and schools spanning 5 states (Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Virginia). The Mid-South District provides leadership, resources, and encouragement for reaching the lost for Christ’s kingdom and equipping the found for service in our churches, communities, and in the world.
