Independent Lutheran Diocese

— Returning to the heart of traditional Lutheran doctrine and practice —


The ILD is an Association of Confessional, Orthodox Lutherans who believe in the unaltered confessions and the inerrant Word of God. We provide free education to equip and ordain men for the Pastoral Office, and plant churches to serve the Body of Christ. Come to our churches for liturgical worship and receive God’s gifts of Word and Sacraments.
