Evangelical Lutheran Church of Brazil
Igreja Evangelica Luterana do Brasil (IELB)

History:
The first LCMS missionary came to Brazil in 1900 at the request of German immigrants living in Brazil. Our Seminario Concordia was established in 1903 and one year later, in 1904, the Igreja Evangelica Luterana do Brasil (IELB) became a district of The Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod. The motto of the church for its centennial is “Christ for All.”

The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod Inc., including Mission Central (in Mapleton, Iowa), is an IRS registered 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity.

A contribution designated (restricted) for a specific purpose when accepted, will be used only to fund expenses related to that purpose. Occasionally, we may receive more in contributions for a particular purpose than can be wisely applied to it in the foreseeable future or the purpose may cease to be feasible. In these situations, the LCMS will make reasonable attempts to contact contributors to apply their contribution differently. If a contributor cannot be contacted, the LCMS will use the gift to meet a similar pressing need that most closely matches the contributor's original intent.  Consistent with Synod Board policy, no more than 12 percent of a charitable contribution may be applied to administering gifts and communicating with contributors.  Contributions received and accepted by the LCMS are deemed to be in agreement with this statement.

Our Tax Identification Number is: 43-0658188
