The Evangelical Lutheran Church of Colombia (IELCO) has been blessed throughout its history with the company of men and women from abroad who have walked with us in the fulfillment of the Mission of God in Colombia. We remember with special affection established relations with Synods of the United States and Canada from the very genesis of our church. Through the 84 years of presence in Colombia, there are many people with whom God has granted us to walk in mission. God continues to accompany our steps as together we move forward. Sometimes we walk together on gentle and tranquil roads, other times on difficult rocky paths, but always with the joy of being companions in mission.
Today social networks and media allows us to keep walking together with ease and immediacy not seen before. IELCO has used these tools early on and today continues to recognize them as a valuable tool in strengthening our relationships. However, the language barrier sometimes has limited the opportunity to maximize the use of these resources. Aware of this opportunity, a multidisciplinary team has been working since the beginning of the year and today, happily, we can announce the official opening of our website in its English version. Through this webpage we want to share news of our main activities, stories of transformation from our shared path in mission and the challenges that our mission task entails.
As Evangelical Lutheran Church of Colombia IELCO, we are delighted to put at your disposal this webpage as means of knowing the latest news of our church and to maintain contact with the people and churches that for years have walked alongside us in the task that God has entrusted us here in Colombia.
May God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, continue to bless us with shared ways and with the new-found joy of our shared companionship.
If two walk together, isn’t it because they’ve agreed? – Amós 3:3 (PDT)
