Lutheran CORE is a broad-based renewal movement of traditional and confessional Lutherans within and beyond the ELCA, working together with a number of partner organizations from across the country. We are interested in cooperative ministry with all who uphold the authority of God’s Word over all matters of faith and life, and who seek to engage in the mission of Christ in the world.

We welcome the support and cooperation of organizations and groups who agree with the goals and principles of Lutheran CORE, and accept the Lutheran CORE Constitution.
