Spain

  •  Country Summary
  • Almost five centuries after the Spanish Inquisition drove Lutherans out of Spain, a Lutheran presence has been restored. In the late 1990s, a family in Toledo and a woman in Asturias contacted the French Lutheran Church, which led to a partnership between the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Argentina (IELA), and the LCMS to plant a Lutheran church in Spain. Argentine missionary pastors led the initial effort. Since 2015, LCMS missionaries have been working with the pastors and lay leaders of the Spanish Lutheran Church to increase the proclamation of the Gospel and grow the church.

    The Spanish Lutheran Church (IELE) has three congregations, in Seville, Madrid and Cartagena. IELE is a confessional church with solid Lutheran foundations, and relationships with other confessional churches worldwide.

    The first Spanish pastor of the IELE was ordained in October 2010, the second in November, 2017. Along with other men studying for the pastoral ministry, the pastors and lay leaders of IELE, along with the LCMS missionaries, are building a foundation of Word and Sacrament ministry, in order to promote the long term growth and health of the Spanish Lutheran Church.

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
