About the ILD

Independent Lutheran Diocese

Sending out those called by God

The Independent Lutheran Diocese was founded in 2008 in Klamath Falls, Oregon, under the current Presiding Bishop. We are a growing body of Confessional or Orthodox Lutherans, who hold to the unaltered Lutheran confessions, and we believe, teach, and confess that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God.

Our vision

  1. Return to an authentic Christian worship experience
  2. Seek and find true spirituality in our hearts and lives
  3. Discover and present genuine Christianity to those around us
  4. Experience the joy of Jesus Christ in our daily life

Providing pathways of service for:

  • Congregation planting
  • Chaplaincy
  • Ordination
