The Archives of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America preserve, protect and make accessible the records of the ELCA, its predecessor church bodies, inter-Lutheran agencies and prominent leaders of the church.
The resources listed below provide basic information to our much larger collection.
The Archives catalog contains aids for finding processed collections, as well as brief records for unprocessed materials. For information on congregational microfilm, please contact the Archives directly. Many of those records are now indexed and available online through a partnership with www.archives.com.
We are the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God's grace. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person--questions, complexities and all. Join us as we do God's work in Christ's name for the life of the world.
