Mission and Ministry work in Asia

Christ works through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) to expand His Body, the Church, throughout Asia. Christ grows His Church as the pure and unadulterated Means of Grace (the Word of God and the Sacraments) are administered for the good of those He has already called into His Body through 120 years of LCMS mission in Asia and as the Means of Grace are brought to those who do not yet belong to His Kingdom.


In Asia, the LCMS witnesses to Christ’s work for the world through planting churches and offering theological education. The LCMS cares for those in need as we do mercy work alongside Word and Sacrament. Sister churches of the LCMS frequently request our support; Christ provides for them as He sends forth LCMS missionaries and international workers who preach, teach and assist partner churches in pointing to Christ and Him crucified for the sins of the world.

      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
