What is an Assembly?

Welcome to the Thirteenth Assembly, the principal authority of the LWF

An Assembly is the highest decision-making body of the LWF. In addition to celebrating the common faith of the Lutheran communion across contexts and cultures, the Assembly offers mutual enrichment through joint reflection and discernment, and provides the platform for joint decision-making. As the principal authority of the LWF, the Assembly is the most representative expression of the LWF communion. Delegates from all member churches take part. The outcomes and decisions will lay the ground for the work of the LWF in the coming six to seven years.
